Portimao: Jos Menten back with Reiter Engineering!
Reiter Engineering is pulling out all the stops to clinch the team title in the FIA GT1 World Championship. Hans Reiter’s troops are some twenty points down on the World Championship leaders Vitaphone Racing and with four rounds still to go anything is possible. When one takes a look at the drivers pairings one realises that Reiter is highly ambitious. Test and development driver Peter Kox continues to share the drive with Christopher Haase, ADAC GT champion in 2007 and European GT3 champion in 2009. In Silverstone Frank Kechele was called upon to replace Rafael Daniel. Since then we have seen Kechele perform brilliantly on numerous occasions at the wheel of the Lamborghini bearing start number 25. In Silverstone the young German talent together with Jos Menten grabbed the third place, and in Spa teamed up with Ricardo Zonta he ended up on the top rung of the podium.

Former F1 driver Ricardo Zonta has to forego the seventh round of the FIA GT1 season. Back on home soil the Brazilian has other Lamborghini commitments and is once again handing over his drive to Dutchman Jos Menten. Menten started off the 2010 race season without a fixed drive, but very soon he was able to take a seat in the cockpit of the Murciélago 670 R-SV. Mad-Croc Racing then called upon the services of the Haelen-based driver to team up with Xavier Maassen. In Spa-Francorchamps Menten and Maassen came out on top in the qualifying race. In the Championship Race it also appeared as though the duo were out to clinch victory, until a flat tyre put a spanner in the works. On the Nürburgring Menten experienced less good fortune. Both he and his team mate Maassen were nudged on numerous occasions in the opening laps, resulting in a zero score. In Portimao Menten is once again moving over to the Lamborghini cockpit.
