Spyker Squadron, the racing division of the famous supercar manufacturer, Spyker created in 1898, announced on 1 March it had chosen to focus its resources in 2011 on its next generation of GTs.
Based on the all-new Spyker C8 Aileron and developed to meet the new GT Endurance regulations introduced by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (creator and organiser of the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans), this new GT will start racing as of 2012.
As a technical partner of this prestigious OEM, Motul will participate in the development of this exceptional car. The aim will be to make it at least as good as the C8 Laviolette GT2 which, it should be recalled, won two second podium steps during the 2009 Le Mans Series Championship and secured a superb fifth place in its class in Le Mans.
This sabbatical year will also be devoted to contacting new teams wishing to enter the new Dutch GT in the finest Endurance events in 2012.
Last, it should be noted that, depending on demand received by the end of the first season, a GT3 variant could also be developed quite quickly.
