Reiter Engineering customer team finishes on the Blancpain Sprint Series podium once again
The Reiter Engineering customer teams ran strongly in the first half of the Blancpain Sprint Series race at Zolder, Belgium. Peter Kox (NSC Motorsports) and Hari Proczyk (Grasser Racing) made perfect starts in their Gallardo FL2 GT3 and took first and second positions at the first corner. Due to the extremely chaotic start the safety car was initially deployed, which meant that Kox and Proczyk could only speed up the tempo from lap 4 onwards.
However, the Gallardo pair was unable to build up a comfortable margin as the field was slowed once again when the safety was deployed again on lap 8 due to an accident. Soon after the race went green, the pit stop window opened. At this point in time the Gallardo FL2 GT3 were firmly in the lead.

NSC Motorsports and Grasser Racing on the podium for qualifying race – title chances improved
The teams contesting the 2014 Blancpain Endurance Series converged on Zolder, Belgium for the final event on European soil. Three squads – Grasser Racing, G-Drive Racing and NSC Motorsport – appeared with four Reiter Gallardo FL2 GT3.
All three teams laid the foundations for a successful qualifying session with fast laps in free practice. This is divided into three segments, although it is only in the third of these that the best grid positions are determined. Three of the four Gallardo FL2 GT3 made it into this final session. Jeroen Bleekemolen / Hari Proczyk would lead this Gallardo faction. Bleekemolen planted the Grasser Racing Gallardo on the front row with the day’s second fastest lap. Peter Kox and Nick Catsburg demonstrated their ambitions on the premiere of NSC Motorsports in this series by setting fourth fastest qualifying time. Tomas Enge and Roman Rusinov took seventh on the grid. As a result, three Gallardo were in the top 10 of this extremely competitive field, where 16 cars were covered by just 0.7 second in qualifying!
The qualifying at Zolder on Saturday afternoon started in summery conditions.

GT Asia Shanghai: double podium for Aoki / Urata and Dilango Racing
The former Grand Prix motorcycle racer Takuma Aoki and Ken Urata grabbed the headlines once again in the GTM class of the GT Asia series. In a Reiter Gallardo LP560 GT3 fielded by Dilango Racing, they were at the sharp end of the field in both GT Asia races at Shanghai, China. Even Aoki’s paraplegia and the subsequent time lost during the driver change hardly slowed them down. In the first race, they mounted the podium as third placed finishers, in the second race they climbed another step higher. With 11th place on Sunday, Aoki / Urata only narrowly missed a top 10 position overall among the professional drivers in the GT3 class.
