The summer season offered up a highly welcome change. Following on from the bad luck at the beginning of the season it now looks as though the tide has changed for Jos Menten. The Haelen based driver has clocked up three victories these last two months in the ADAC GT Masters, and a fourth podium was on the books had it not been for a broken wheel hub during the second race at the Saschenring last weekend.
In the FIA GT championship Jos Menten and Peter Kox scored their first points in Oschersleben with a fifth place. However the 24 Hours of Spa was less successful, but in Adria the Dutch duo followed on in their elan by scoring a further three points with a sixth place. The HD GIGAWAVE Reiter Engineering troops are now travelling on down to Brno full of confidence, for the eighth round of the FIA GT championship. The Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT with number 28 should be in a position to finish once again in the top eight, and as such score points in the championship.
"We haven't had an easy start to the season, but any beginning is difficult", Jos Menten told us. "For me the Lamborghini was unknown territory, just like most circuits. We have to fight it out with highly strong competitors in this hyper competitive championship. The potential is obvious, we are now going to carry this positive streak on further in the Czech Republic. As from Monza everything moved rapidly. With every race the car is improving. This gives us a great deal of hope for the future. In principal Brno, Nogaro and Zolder should be favourable for our car. We truly intend finishing the season and our 2007-campaign in the FIA GT championship on a high."
