Gulf-Racing-Gallardo-angled-ELMS-Silverstone

Good team performance at Blancpain Sprint Series opener in Nogaro goes unrewarded.

Gulf Racing races to third place with Gallardo at Silverstone

The drivers Roald Goethe, Dan Brown and Archie Hamilton wrote history in the 4-hour race at England’s motorsport mecca Silverstone with their drive in the Gallardo FL2 GT3: never before had a racing team taken a podium finish in the European Le Mans Series. In a challenging race, the three gentlemen drivers kept the Reiter Engineering developed Gallardo GT3 permanently on course for a podium and were finally rewarded with 3rd place in the GTC class.

Team leader Roald Goethe was impressed: “This Gallardo was my first ever GT car. I bought the car immediately after I’d been infected by motorsport in 2008. Over the years, the car has had several facelifts and upgrades. After all this time it’s obviously great recognition of our work over the years.”

NO EASTER SURPRISE FOR REITER ENGINEERING IN NOGARO

gallardo-rex-front-pitlane-bss-nogaro

Good team performance at Blancpain Sprint Series opener in Nogaro goes unrewarded.

After the being barged out of the qualifying race early, the Reiter Engineering team did everything possible to repair the damaged Gallardo R-EX for the main Blancpain Sprint Series race in Nogaro. After several laps in the warm-up, it was clear that the R-EX was ready for another attack on the leading positions.

However in keeping with Murphy’s Law, “if it can go wrong it will go wrong”, the main race was over sooner than expected. On the previous day, Nick Catsburg and Albert von Thurn und Taxis had avoided the turmoil at the start and could run with the leading group. However, everything went wrong on Easter Monday. A competitor touched the Gallardo driven by Albert von Thurn und Taxis in such a way that really fast lap times were not possible due to the damage.

However, giving up was not an option. The team decided to finish the

Following a somewhat patchy performance in the two free practice session, the Reiter Engineering development stable’s race team produced a decent performance with its Gallardo REX today Easter Monday: in the morning, Nick Catsburg laid the foundation for a good start to the opening round of the Blancpain Sprint Series 2015. After setting the 10th fastest time and taking a place on the fifth row, the race started furiously with a crash. Nick Catsburg skilfully avoided the crash and emerged from the turmoil in 4th position in the Gallardo REX.

KTM-X-BOW-GT4-pit-front-angled

Following some extremely intensive and busy working weeks the time had finally arrived. Reiter Engineering was able to conduct the first extensive test-drives with the racing car that has resulted from their cooperation with KTM. And the KTM X-BOW GT4 passed the two-day tests with flying colors. There were a number of long runs with the car on the 2.7 km circuit near Venice and in total the latest GT4 racing car put in almost 400 laps.

Team boss Hans Reiter, who was personally there for these very important first test-drives was extremely satisfied at the end of both days. “The first extended tests drives are the most critical phase in the development of a new racing car. All the components have to work together for the first time under a full load. You can see how the temperature balance really is for the first time, whether the aerodynamics work as intended or whether the tire wear is within the right parameters. After these two days in Italy we have to say that the KTM X-BOW GT4 has exceeded our expectations. Initially

BLANCPAIN RACING AND CATSBURG ON THE PODIUM

Victory-ceremony-stpete-catsburg

Nick Catsburg drives the Blancpain Racing Gallardo FL2 GT3 to second place in the Pirelli World Challenge in St. Petersburg.

Under the Florida sun, an equally radiant Nick Catsburg started the fourth race of the Pirelli World Challenge in St. Petersburg from the front row. The second fastest race lap in Saturday’s race gave the Dutchman and Blancpain Racing the excellent start position.

During the last race weekend at the Circuit of the Americas, Catsburg and Blancpain Racing had already mounted the podium after finishing third. This was the target once again. The Gallardo FL2 GT3 driver initially defended his second position as the 38-car field stormed into the first lap. However, street tracks like St. Petersburg have their own rules. In contrast to permanent race tracks, even more precision and caution is required due to the lack of run-off areas. As a result, Catsburg was forced to give a competitor room and dropped down to 3rd place.

A long safety car phase following an accident involving several competitors froze the actual running order. Only on lap 12 with just 20 minutes left to run did the race stewards finally wave the green flag to unleash the battle for podium positions. Nick Catsburg sized up the McLaren

Catsburg sets fastest lap. Another drive through penalty prevents good finish. Max Völker out after spectacular collision immediately following his excellent start.

Success and misfortune were never far apart for the Blancpain Racing in today’s sprint Pirelli World Challenge race: in the race held during the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg event, the Dutch newcomer Nick Catsburg wanted to make up for his mistake in the first race in Austin/Texas. Three weeks ago, he relinquished the lead in the opening race when he was given a drive through penalty, which cost him valuable time, after crossing the solid white line marking the pit lane exit. Although starting from 9th position on the grid for today’s race was not as good as the race in Austin where started from pole, Catsburg stormed through the field

This coming weekend in the Florida sunshine, Blancpain Racing aims to collect winners’ trophies in the Pirelli World Challenge.

WOMAN POWER IN THE KTM X-BOW GT4: NAOMI SCHIFF TO START FOR REITER ENGINEERING

naomi-schiff-ktm-xbow-gt4-reiter

 

In a few weeks time, Reiter Engineering will start an exciting racing year 2015 with the KTM X-BOW GT4. As to the choice of a driver, team boss Hans Reiter has been biding his time with a truly great surprise: Naomi Schiff, the highly motivated, young junior racer from Belgium, will sit at the wheel of the new race car and be certain to cause a sensation in the upcoming season.

Twenty-year old Naomi Schiff was born in Antwerp to a Rwandan mother and a Belgian father. The multilingual Belgian grew up in South Africa and was based in Johannesburg from the age of four till eighteen. Even though her father raced in his young years, he never pushed Naomi into motor sport: "That was never an issue", she explained frankly and laughed: "At the age of eleven I was invited to the birthday party of a friend. It took place in a go-kart hall, and the highlight was a race with all the guests. I had never sat in a kart, but right off the bat I was the fastest and had a lot of fun. From then on I begged my father every day for my own kart – until I suddenly received a PCR kart at the age of 12."

From then on, it was clear: Naomi Schiff wanted to make a career in racing. She worked towards circuit racing via the national South African Kart Championship in 2008 in which she finished only one point behind as Vice Champion, and stages such as the Rotax World Finale in which she was the first woman ever

THURN & TAXIS AND CATSBURG TEAM UP FOR BLANCPAIN SPRINT SERIES

gallardo-rex-front-blancpain-gt-paul-ricard

REITER Engineering fields a dynamic duo for their number 24 R-EX Gallardo.

The Dutchman Nick Catsburg, who has joined the Bavarian squad this year, will share the cockpit with Albert von Thurn & Taxis whose conspicuous absence from the Blancpain Series since 2012 comes to an end.

"I am greatly looking forward to finally returning to this wonderful Championship. It is a true pleasure to be driving with Nick, who, despite being a bloody fast pilot, is a kind and pleasant character and doubtlessly a great asset for our team", remarked the Prince. The affable Bavarian has been a regular to SRO promoted Championships for the better part of the past 10 years. Despite clinching some respectable results so far, he has yet to prove himself as a Championship contender on an international level - a daring challenge in this years strong PRO field.

For this purpose he will certainly be able to rely on his partner Nick Catsburg, who has made a name for himself by consistently outperforming in a diversity of vehicles and championships and will unquestionably be a benchmark of speed for the 2015 season. Nick: "I am really happy to add

SaReNi Camaro also up the front.

Both GT3 racecars, penned by the Reiter Engineering tuning stable, made good impressions during the first of two official test days for the Blancpain Endurance Series at Paul Ricard. The cool morning temperatures of around 10°C were ideal for fast lap times. At end of the first half of today’s test, the R-EX topped the 45-car GT3 category field by more than a second. The Camaro also produced good lap times and took 5th place in the highly competitive field.

In addition to the two professional racing drivers Peter Kox and Tomas Enge, the two gentlemen drivers Bernhard Müller and Ronald Hölling also made the most of the good conditions at the Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, southern France. In conjunction with the test, Reiter Engineering used the opportunity to attend to its ‘special’ customers: Müller was the Kirchanschöring based racing stable’s very first customer. Hölling bought the first R-EX in Europe.

BLANCPAIN RACING AND CATSBURG ON THE PODIUM

Nick Catsburg finished third at the wheel of the Blancpain Gallardo FL2 GT3 despite the tricky weather conditions in the second Pirelli World Challenge race in Austin.

While the first race of the weekend was held on a dry track, the drivers had to readapt for race two. Pouring rain turned the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, into a skating rink.

Blancpain Racing driver Nick Catsburg started the second 60-minute sprint from pole position after having set the fastest lap in Saturday’s race. The Dutchman was cautious at the rolling start, which cost him the lead at Turn 1. However, numerous spins and offs by the competition on the opening lap justified his caution. The race director immediately deployed the safety car to clean up, before the race continued on lap 7.

Catsburg dropped back to 4th place on cold tyres after the restart. However, as the

catsburg-gallardo-front-blancpain-racing-austin-pwc

10th place in the Saturday race due to drive through penalty after setting the pole in the qualifying. Blancpain Racing will be starting from the pole in the Sunday race again.  

In the beginning, Nick Catsburg defended the top position that he gained due to setting the fastest lap time in the qualifying and was in the lead of the 45-car field in the first laps. According to the race management, the Dutchmen was defending the lead a little too vigorously and, therefore, was curbed down with a drive through penalty. In the heat of the moment, Catsburg with his Reiter Gallardo FL2 GT3 crossed the solid line in the pit lane exit, which the drivers were told to avoid.

The due drive through the pit lane in lap 8 costed valuable time. Catsburg returned to the field on position 15. In the remaining 15 laps, Catsburg fought his way up to position 10. The loss of

Nick Catsburg put his Blancpain Racing Gallardo FL2 GT3 on pole position for the first round of the Pirelli World Challenge.

Nick Catsburg’s debut in the Pirelli World Challenge could not have gone better. In the 45-minute qualifying session, the Dutchman, representing Blancpain Racing, beat the entire 48-car field to take pole position for Saturday afternoon’s race. Catsburg had slightly more than a tenth of second in hand over his closest rivals after posting a lap time of 2m 4.257s in the Gallardo FL2 GT3.

Nick Catsburg set quick times from the beginning of the session. His third lap broke the 2m 5s barrier, on lap 5 the pro driver and member of the Reiter Engineering squad pounced and set the fastest time. Throughout the second half of qualifying, nobody seriously threatened the pole positon, which means that Catsburg starts the first race with a clear road ahead.

TOP 10 FINISH FOR JBS AUSTRALIA IN THE BATHURST 12H

Lamborghini-Gallardo-JBS-AUS-front-bathurst12hours3

Reiter Engineering customer JBS Australia finishes seventh with the Gallardo FL2 GT3 in the spectacular endurance race on Mount Panorama.

David Russell, Roger Lago and Steve Owen battled with the competition around Mount Panorama for 268 laps in their Reiter Engineering developed Gallardo FL2 GT3. After the race at Bathurst started at dawn around the 6 kilometre long track, JBS Australia held a top 3 position for almost two hours. The pits stop skilfully made during the many safety car phases kept the Australian team within striking distance of the factory drivers in the Audi, Bentley, Aston Martin and Nissan GT cars.

As the temperatures increased rapidly during the day, the Gallardo trio reduced their pace a little and avoided taking risks. This would pay off in the final third of the race when they moved into the top 10 again at the expense of the factory-backed teams. David Russell took over for the final stint and fought his way up...

This season was divided into two parts.

A 60-minute session involving all the cars opened proceedings, followed by a separate 20-minute session exclusively for the GT3 cars  JBS Australia only sent its Gallardo FL2 GT3 onto the track after almost half an hour, which was enough for driver David Russell to set the tone. Just a single lap was sufficient to record the fourth fastest qualifying time. Afterwards, Russell parked the Gallardo in the pits ready to attack in the second part of qualifying.
