FIA GT1 World Championship 2011
June 29th, 2011
In a few days time the teams competing in the FIA GT1 World Championship will come together at the Spanish circuit in Navarra, starting the second half of the 2011 season. It will also be the second to last racing weekend in Europe before the teams travel to Asia.
After being unable to start in Silverstone (GBR) four weeks ago Swiss Racing Team will have to bite the bullet again. Both Lamborghini Murcielagos LP 670 R-SV will not compete in Navarra.
After a heavy accident at the German Sachsenring, both cars were severely damaged. The repair of the car with the starting number #5 is still not finished and for chassis #6 there is still no release for racing.
Team principal, Othmar Welti:
“The situation is rather dramatic. We were not able to compete in Silverstone and intended to use the time to repair the damage and to get the cars back in top shape.
Now it looks like the cars will start at the last European race in the south of France again. We cannot wait to compete in motorsports again. After all, that is why we participate in the GT1 World Championship.”
