FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NEW PROJECT WITH KTM
Friday, 14 November 2014 00:00
The press release from KTM and Reiter Engineering published at the beginning of the week has obviously aroused interest and raised several questions. Many media representatives and customers have approached our partner and us with these questions. We would like to use this opportunity to answer the most frequently asked questions:
Will it be a GT3, GT4 or even a GTE racecar?
I can’t give you any concrete data today, but I’m happy to give comparable information.
