We need to develop the setup further to make most of the car´s potential. This will require quite a lot testing kilometres“, explains driver Stephan Rösler. „We cant expect such a trouble-free run again, of course we would be pleased to achieve a good result“, adds driver Andreas Kitzerow.

So the Gallardo qualification and running without ABS did not have to complete - an easy task in view of the to a large extent adverse weather and distance conditions on both days in the Eifel. However constant running followed an foreignindebted turner equal in the first round, at its end passabler 18. Place in the total valuation stood.

Lamborghini Gallardo GTR scores
first ever class victory!
Untermerzbach/Germany, 25th October 2005 —— Team Lambo-Racing scored its first ever class victory with the worlds first Lamborghini Gallardo GTR during the 10th round of the Nürburgring Endurance Championship VLN. It was an eventful four hour race in front of 23,000 spectators, and in the end the car was the first one of its class to arrive at the finish. „We are really happy about this early success which was possible because of the car´s reliability“, said driver Stephan Rösler right after the race.

The weather & track conditions in the Eifel were tricky all weekend, especially for the Lamborghini which has no ABS. The race started with a spin during the first lap and progressed with a strong and trouble-free run which was rewarded with the 18th position overall. „We could have driven faster in the rain with ABS and we were held up by slower cars after the spin. So we could have had an even higher overall position with a little more luck“, thinks driver Andreas Kitzerow. However, the retirement of the strongest class rival, the Dodge Viper, meant the first ever class victory for the team. „It took us some seconds to realize the Viper had been retired and to realize we really won our class“, Kitzerow continues.

After two very successful first races in 2005, the team is looking forward into the next season: „We can evaluate this two results in a realistic way, the winter will give us time to work on the car and improve it even more.“ (Translation by Robert Prange)

GT3 presentation, ABS development and selfmade tuning parts: Busy off-season for Lambo-Racing

Untermerzbach/Germany, 17th January 2006 —— The off-season is no time to relax for the Lambo-Racing GmbH. The Untermerzbach-based squad is using the free time to add ABS to the Lamborghini Gallardo GTR: „ ABS will give us a big advantage, especially during tricky Eifel weather conditions“, explains driver Stephan Rösler.

Some weeks ago, the car had an exciting outing on the french Le Castellet circuit during the official FIA GT3 european series presentation. Driver Andreas Kitzerow was able to drive some fast laps on the french circuit: „Our four-wheel drive was a big advantage during the wet conditions. That’s why we were faster than Aston Martin, Maserati and Lotus. Four-wheel drive wont be legal in the GT3 championship but we wont enter our car there anyways”, explains Kitzerow. „It was fun to drive on another circuit and we showed the car can be competative outside the Nürburgring“, adds Rösler.

Owners of street legal Lamborghini Gallardos will now be able to improve their cars based on Lambo-Racing´s success: „We want other Gallardo drivers to benefit from our racing development . That’s why we are offering various tuning parts like exhausts, brakes, seats or body parts“, explains Kitzerow. A full listing of all available parts can be found on www.Lambo-Racing.de.

Development on the Gallardo GTR will continue until the start of the 2006 VLN season. The last season ended on a high with the first ever class win for the Gallardo, nevertheless both drivers are sure there’s much more to come: „The car’s potential is not yet reached, there’s still lots of development work to do.“ (Translation by Robert Prange)

Draft press release * 09.03.06

REITER UPBEAT ABOUT GT3 TEST



"Highest top speed and easy to drive." These two comments about the performance of the
Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 were music to the ears of Hans Reiter and his German engineering
company at the end of a comprehensive two-day test at the Paul Ricard HTTT test track. They
should also be music to the ears of prospective competitors in the new FIA GT3 European
Championship.

Present at the official test session in the south of France were most of the proposed competitors
for the 2006 season, with only Ferrari missing from the test. The purpose of the test was to
assess and, if necessary, equalise the performance of cars including the Maserati GT3, the
Chrysler Viper, the Lamborghini Gallardo, Corvette C6, Porsche 997 and the Aston Martin
DBRS9. French sportscar drivers Christophe Bouchut and Jean-Marc Gounon were on hand in
addition to each of the teams' own designated drivers to drive and collect data on all the cars for
the FIA.

The German engineering specialists were especially pleased with the performance of the
Lamborghini, which set a fastest time of 2m12.077 leaving it just behind the Viper in the timings.
It tested both with and without ballast, as did the Viper and the Corvette (the three fastest cars
from the first day). Having worked hard over the winter period to develop a two-wheel drive
version of the 2006 Gallardo model, this brand new car had its first outing last Wednesday at the
Adria test track in Italy at which it immediately showed its speed by setting a new lap record for
GT3 cars of 1m18.28.

Hans Reiter was very upbeat about the outcome of the Paul Ricard test. "It was a good two days
and I think we have proved the worth of the Lamborghini here. One of the most important
features of a car to be driven by gentlemen drivers is that it should be easy to handle, and this
was one of the main comments about the Gallardo. The racing ABS system makes it very
suitable for this purpose. I am also very happy with the top speed of the car * it is definitely a
potential winner."

Peter Kox was on hand to drive the Reiter-run Lamborghini Gallardo, together with a number of
potential clients who had the possibility to do a few laps of the Paul Ricard test track. Several
cars have already been sold by Reiter for use in the Italian GT Championship, with further interest
in both the British and French GT series.

Also present at Paul Ricard was collector Bernhard Müller with his Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT.
Herr Müller took delivery of the Reiter-built car six months ago and was making the most of the
first opportunity he'd had to put some mileage on his car. Müller has no intentions to enter his car
into racing events; the testing was purely for fun.
