Reiter Engineering boosts its driver squad and signs new professional racing driver
With the addition of the new KTM GT4 project, Reiter Engineering is now responsible for the development of three racecars: the KTM GT4, Reiter Gallardo R-EX as well as the ‘Bavarian Muscle car’ SaReNi Camaro GT3.
To guarantee that the highest standards are maintained during development and optimisation of the racecars and to further improve the results achieved by the in-house racing team, the Bavarian tuning stable has brought Nick Catsburg into the team.
Nick has been racing for over 10 year and is regarded as an experienced driver:
Nick started by competing in single-seater racing before changing to GT cars in 2009. Only one year later, he won the European Megane Trophy title. This victory paved the way for his move into GT3 and GT1 racing where he drove a BMW Z4 and Nissan GT-R GT1. In 2012 and 2013, he concentrated on the Blancpain GT series’. He won the team championship together with his team MarcVDS Racing. He also raised eyebrows when he won the VLN8 race on his debut on the Nordschleife in 2013.
The contact with Reiter Engineering intensified when...
the Blancpain Sprint Series stopped in Zolder in 2014: Nick took second place in the qualifying race with the Reiter Gallardo FL2 GT3 fielded by team NSC Motorsports.
Hans Reiter, owner of Reiter Engineering, is delighted about the team’s newcomer: “Nick has established a good reputation over the last few years thanks to his success. In the races at Zolder, we saw first-hand just how good he is. He has a good feeling for the car and will certainly be a great help for us in the development of our racecars. With Nick and our other professional drivers like Tomas Enge, Peter Kox and Albert von Thurn und Taxis we have a potent line-up for our racing team.”
Reiter Engineering will reveal more surprises by mid-March when the remaining drivers are announced.
The cooperation with Reiter Engineering also offers many advantages for Nick Catsburg.
Nick is also looking forward to the new season: “Obviously I am very happy about this, I guess as a racing driver this is something we all want: being part of the constant development of a professional racing and engineering team. I’m very happy that I’m now being given the chance and I’m thrilled to work with the team. I definitely expect some good results for us in some of the well-known European championships and can’t wait for this season to start!”
