Story added in July 2001
During the 24 hours of Le Mans in France the "Dutch Team Lammers", consisting of the riders Jan Lammers, Val Hildebrand and Tom Coronel an Old Skool BMX'er, took part in the 24 hours race of Le Mans and finished 5th overall just behind 4 full supported and sponsored Audi's. Tom Coronel also raced in Japan for some time and won a National title there in the Formula Ford series. He was in the picture early 2001 for a seat in a Formula One race car, but couldn't get the money together to buy a seat. Old Skool BMX' ers go fast!
The twin brothers Tom and Tim Coronel, both are old school bmx'racers. In the early days they were "factory riders" for bike brand "Rocket" a un-confential designed frame was used.
