Reiter Engineering customer Vattana Motorsport from Thailand usual starts with Gallardo GT3 and Camaro GT3 racecars in the Thailand Super Series.

Last weekend they choose the Asia GT Series on their homeground, the Buriram United International Circuit.
The #28 Gallardo R-EX was driven by Narasak Ittiritpong and Reiter Engineering pilot Tomas Enge. Ittiritpong, the new young driver from Thailand in the crew, got most of the track time in Free Practice, to gain more and more experience with the new car.

ITALIAN GT: GALLARDO PODIUM FINISH AT THE FINAL ROUND
Reiter Engineering customer Imperiale Racing was a title contender in Italian GT Championship until the end of the 2015 season. To maximize the chance for winning the driver championship, Imperiale split their successful duo Mirko Bortolotti / Alberto Viberti. Bortolotti stayed in the #63 Gallardo FL2 GT3 and with Adrian Zaugg he got a new co driver at his side. Viberti changed into the cockpit of the #54 Gallardo and partnered with Giovanni Venturini.
At first, this tactic seemed to be the planned successful way. Bortolotti / Zaugg had a good first run on Saturday and finished their race on third position with a podium. The points for this position brought Bortolotti into the lead in the driver ranking, even it was a close one with just one point ahead of the second. But an early retirement after just 11 laps on Sunday spoiled all hopes about winning the championship. In the end Bortolotti finished the season in 3rd place.
Alberto Viberti raced to 10th place on Saturday and missed the podium on Sunday close with 4th position. A third Imperiale Racing Gallardo FL2 GT3 finished race 2 on fifth position with Andrea Palma and Giacomo Barri.

BLANCPAIN SPRINT SERIES ZANDVOORT: REITER ENGINEERING FINISHEST HE SEASON INSIDE THE TOP 10
For the last time in the 2015 season, Reiter Engineering travelled to an event of the Blancpain Sprint Series. Just a glimpse away from the North Sea, the Circuit Park Zandvoort was the place to be. Nick Catsburg used his track knowledge at his home race and qualified the Gallardo R-EX in the third qualifying session for 6th place on the grid.
The qualifying race at Saturday started successful. Catsburg gained one position at the start and brought the Gallardo in for the mandatory pit stop in exactly the same position. But a problem changing the right rear wheel cost more than a second. So Albert von Thurn und Taxis, who had entered the Cockpit of the Reiter Engineering car, came back into the race in 12th place. The gap between the cars was too big to change anything, so he finished the race also in 12th.
