Monday, 21 July 2014 00:00

After victory the day before, the Reiter Engineering driver takes the flag in fourth place.

reiter-gallardo-gt3-hahn-race-start-pwc-torontoThe Pirelli World Challenge proved to be just as tough in Toronto, Canada. The tight street circuit without runoff areas forced drivers to adopt a clean driving style. The Reiter Engineering driver Marcelo Hahn was already aware of this on Friday in free practice. He destroyed his actual Gallardo FL2 GT3 accident, which meant that he had to run the rest of the weekend with a spare chassis.

Hahn was on course for a podium position in the GT-A division from the very beginning of the second race at the event in Toronto, and like the previous day was able to escape the competition’s worst skirmishes. A longer full course yellow at half distance didn’t put the Reiter Engineering driver off his stride.

Reiter Gallardo FL2 GT3: podium for NSC Motorsport at Zandvoort, Pro Am Trophy victory for Grasser Racing

The Reiter Engineering customer team dominated the qualifying race almost as it desired with its Gallardo FL2 GT3. Jeroen Bleekemolen drove the opening stint and quickly pulled away from the field.

They all pose for the opportunity to be in the thick of the action at the race in Spielberg.
