Hans Reiter’s team is going to compete with two Lamborghinis Gallardo LP 600+ in the FIA GT1 World Championship. Championship organiser, Stéphane Ratel (SRO), worked hard to create perfect conditions for the World Championship. Hans Reiter is happy that everything worked out fine and that he will be able to participate with two Lamborghinis.
“Stéphane achieved that the races of this great championship are going to take place all over the world. So it has become a true world championship at a very high level and with top-class cars. As a small manufacturer, the Asian and Russian markets have become very important for us. The world championship will be a major platform for all parties”, says team principal, Hans Reiter.
Talks with the drivers will be concluded shortly and names will be announced very soon. However, Dutch pilot Peter Kox who has been working with Reiter Engineering for many years will almost definitely be one of our drivers.
The first race of the season will take place in Nogaro, France on April 8, 2012. Six European races will take place in conjunction with the FIA GT3 European Championship.
