The German team YACO Racing entered two Camaro GT3s’ in the ADAC GT Masters debut in Zandvoort located in the Netherlands. This technically demanding 13 turn, 2.67 mile circuit put the two newly developed Sereni Camaros to the test with their powerful Katech engines. The newly developed Katech-powered cars showed their developers they are on the right track and that the Camaro GT3 is becoming a serious competitor.
After pushing hard to the front of the pack during the second race on Sunday, the Camaro GT3 #35 was hit on the left rear side by a Porsche at the end of the start/finish straight in lap 27. The subsequent damage to the suspension forced the car to retire early.
Hans Reiter (developer of the Camaro GT):
“I am pleased that we had no technical problems. Previously, we had found a large number of software errors and we worked hard to correct them until the race this weekend. We have explored the majority of the errors by now. The driver Charlie Geipel even set the fastest lap in his last race lap, proving that he is not too far away from the top. We are still losing too much time at the start which we need to analyse. I am convinced that we will have a real chance once we resolve this issue”.
