Dutchman Peter Kox has left Reiter Engineering with immediate effect: “Together, we have had great results, but now, the time has come to move on,” he said.
The 51-year old was Super Production European Touring Car Champion in 2001, the same year as he first drove for the Reiter team, when he drove a Lamborghini Diablo GT with Oliver Gavin, and he has driven both the Murciélago and the Gallardo GT cars for the team in the intervening years. Simultaneously, he has driven both for Prodrive and for Spyker, and has amassed 13 starts at the Le Mans 24-hour race, including a win in the GTS class in 2003.
In 2010 he took the ADAC GT title with Albert von Thurn and Taxis, driving an Abt Sportsline Lamborghini Gallardo LP560, and this year entered the Dubai 24 hours in the Scuderia Praha Ferrari 458, finishing fourth. He also debuted the McLaren 650s GT3 at the Gulf 12 Hours at Abu Dhabi at the end of 2014.
