GT Open, Winter Series Event, March 2-3, 2012
The new Katech-powered Sareni United Camaro GT3 debuted at the GT Open at the Paul Ricard HTTT in the south of France last weekend. In the free practice sessions the US GT racing car demonstrated that it will be a strong competitor in future GT3 series races. The Camaro was driven by Albert von Thurn und Taxis (DEU), Stefan Rosina (SLK) and Peter Kox (NLD). Thurn und Taxis and Rosina are going to share a Reiter Engineering Lamborghini Gallardo LP600+ in the 2012 ADAC GT Masters season.
Hans Reiter who developed the new Camaro GT is pleased with its performance: “Everybody did a good job. However, there is a lot of work to do until the start of the season. We still need to fine-tune the Camaro.” The GT car was transported to the BoP (Balance of Performance) for tuning after the free practice sessions. Therefore it was missing in the starting grid of the actual race.
The Yaco Racing team (DEU) will use the car for a race for the first time when they compete in the ADCA GT Masters series and the FIA GT3 European Championship with two Camaros GTs. The first race of the new ADAC GT Masters season will take place at the Motorsport arena in Oschersleben on March 31 and April 1, 2012.
