Camaro GT3: An American in Monza

Camaro GT3: An American in Monza
Reiter Engineering has confirmed that it will bring its Chevrolet Camaro GT3 to the opening round of the Blancpain Endurance Series in Monza. The car will have the experienced trio of Peter Kox, Tomas Enge and Albert von Thurn und Taxis at the wheel.

American Muscle and German Engineering, that was the philosophy of Bavarian Lamborghini specialist Reiter Engineering when it created its SaReNi division to develop a GT3-version of the Chevrolet Camaro. The American beast, which sports a massive 7.9 litre V8 engine, has been thoroughly tested by the team’s regular squad of drivers: Peter Kox, Tomas Enge, Albert von Thurn und Taxis and Stefan Rosina. General Motors works driver Oliver Gavin also had a go in the machine, to further advance its competitiveness. For the moment, the team has only entered the car in the Italian round of the Blancpain Endurance Series, but further participations are certainly among the possibilities.

Hans Reiter (team principal): “The Camaro is something of a rebel. It relies on the massive power of the V8 engine to be among the frontrunners. At the same time, it is one of the most cost-effective cars on the starting grid, which is why it represents the ideal solution for cost-conscious teams and drivers to get involved in the Blancpain GT Series.”
