2 Murciélago R-GT entered into 2007 FIA GT championship - the STORY

For 2007, RS Line and Reiter Engineering will be coming together under the banner All Inkl.com Racing to run two Lamborghini Murciélago cars in the FIA GT Championship, under the lead of All-Inkl.com's René Munnich.

One car will be led by 2006 All Inkl.com driver, and triple FIA GT Champion, Christophe Bouchut. His team-mate is yet to be announced. "I am very happy to work with the All-Inkl team as I enjoy the friendly family atmosphere," he said. "The car has made good progress, and although we might not be able to fight for the title, we can aim for good results and podium finishes, which would be a great reward for the hard work of the whole team, and most importantly René Munnich and Reiner Steifel"

Dutch driver Jos Menten today announced that he and Peter Kox would be driving the other Murciélago. Menten, who took pole position at the Paul Ricard HTTT in a Corvette C6, explained : "Last year I learned a lot in the Le Mans Series. I can look back on a solid season with the Corvette C6.R but the results were not always equal to the performances in the cockpit. I am very happy to have agreed terms with Hans and his team. It feels good to be part of the Reiter Engineering family. Sharing the car with Peter offers good perspectives and the team has a lot of experience with the car. We want to battle for the major honors with the Lamborghini Murciélago R-GT."

Hans Reiter commented: "I am pleased as I believe we have a strong driver line-up for 2007. I believe Jos is one of the most underestimated drivers around, while Peter and Christophe's qualities are well known. The two teams fit well together, and GT racing is a team sport; results come from a combination of team work and speed."

The Lamborghini Murciélago made steady progress through the 2006 season, culminating in the Adria round, where the car was fastest in one of the free practice sessions and stayed with the front-runners for much of the race. "We have made some small evolutions over the winter," Hans continued. "We have worked on the traction control and we have a modified aerodynamic package; the process is continuous. Our aim is to close the gap to the front of the field; we are still a relatively small team compared to Vitaphone or BMS Scuderia Italia. But we have the right drivers and the right tires, with Michelin, and if we make no mistakes, we should be there !"
