Reiter Engineering today confirmed it has added Nick Catsburg to its pool of professional racing drivers for the 2015 season.

The 26-year-old Dutch driver will join Reiter Engineering as part of an international lineup that will race in several European GT championships.

A strong performance in the Lamborghini Gallardo FL2 GT3 at the Blancpain Sprint Series Zolder round in 2014 caught the attention of Hans Reiter.

“Nick has established a good reputation over the last few years thanks to his success. In the races at Zolder, we saw first-hand just how good he is,” said Reiter.

“He has a good feeling for the car and will certainly be a great help for us in the development of our racecars. With Nick and our other professional drivers like Tomas Enge, Peter Kox and Albert von Thurn und Taxis we have a potent line-up for our racing team.”

Catsburg, who was one of the JRM development drivers for the Nissan GT-R GT3 in 2011, is extremely pleased with his new Reiter contract.

“I guess as a racing driver this is something we all want: being part of the constant development of a professional racing and engineering team,” said Catsburg.

“I’m very happy that I’m now being given the chance and I’m thrilled to work with the team. I definitely expect some good results for us in some of the well-known European championships and can’t wait for this season to start!”

Reiter will develop and race three different cars in 2015: the Reiter Gallardo R-EX, the KTM GT4 as well as the SaReNi Camaro GT3. The remaining drivers for the 2015 lineup will be announced in March.
