Just four days before the FIA GT championship's opening round Jos Menten concluded an agreement with RBImmo Racing. The 27 year young driver from Haelen will be driving the blue-white liveried Saleen S7-R on English soil. Menten will be teamed up with the experienced Andrea Piccini. This Italian also has a rich history under his belt, having defended the colours of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Aston Martin and Lister in the past.

"I was contacted by RBImmo last week and then everything went into overdrive. The Saleen stems from Konrad Motorsport, fitted with the latest updates. We'll know more on our position in the field on Saturday after the qualifying session. Andrea Piccini is a strong driver and Franz Konrad's team has built up a solid reputation over the years, so we'll be travelling to Silverstone with a good package", Menten comments. The RBImmo Racing Saleen S7-R sporting start number 13 is shod with Pirelli tyres.

The FIA GT championship takes off on 19th and 20th April at Silverstone, under the auspices of the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy, where some thirty GT1, GT2 and G2 cars will be battling it out!
