Blancpain GT Series stalwart Reiter Engineering has entered two Reiter Gallardo R-EX in the GT Sports Club. The drivers of the two cars will be announced shortly. The GT Sports Club is the new Series organised by SRO Motorsports Group, reserved for Bronze drivers who want to race in an exclusive but friendly atmosphere. This new Series will provide gentleman racers with the opportunity to again fight with their peers for race wins, in four race meetings. Each meeting consists of a free practice and qualifying session, followed by a 25-minute Qualifying Race and 40-minute Main Race. This provides the participants with more time in the car and less time in the paddock, with all sessions being held from lunchtime to lunchtime.
Hans Reiter (team owner): “We expect to see at least four Reiter Gallardos in the new GT Sports Club. The new series has attracted great interest among our customers, and to such an extent that we plan another two Reiter Gallardo R-EX for customer teams in 2015. Because neither professionals nor semi-professionals or even upcoming young talents are permitted in the GT Sports Club, the focus of attention is now about the customers having fun while racing. Ultimately, I expect a kind of business-to-business championship, where business men battle against business men on the finest race tracks. You could almost describe the series as the Mediterranean championship.”
