Cirtek – Twin Programmes
”I can’t believe how busy things have suddenly become,” comments Rob Schirle. “I’m off to Italy tomorrow, to tie up the purchase of a new Ferrari 360 GTC, which will be our Le Mans car, and which we’ll run in the LMES too.”

Having only just taken delivery of a new 911 GT3-RSR, Cirtek has a wealth of new machinery on its hands – plus a collection of other Porsches too (see below).

The RSR will arrive in Florida in the next few days, giving the team a week to prepare it for Sebring. Rob Wilson and Frank Mountain are the two confirmed drivers for this car.

“We’ve got a vacant seat for Sebring in the Porsche (and in the LMES) and one in the Ferrari at Le Mans too,” explains Rob Schirle. “We’re really focused this year on Sebring, the LMES and Le Mans, and I’d be pleased to talk to suitable drivers to work with us.

“We’re building up our personnel here, to cope with the season ahead: Les White has just joined us, from the Bentley project. He was the chief mechanic on the David Brabham car at Le Mans, and he’ll take charge of the workshop and the Ferrari at Le Mans and in the LMES – although he’ll be with us at Sebring too, with the Porsche.”

And the other Porsches? “We’ve bought the Rudi Walch RWS cars from last year’s FIA GT Championship, plus their truck.” In total there are five GT3-RSs at Cirtek’s Mallory base.

It was a good start to the season at Daytona: now, what does the rest of the season hold for Cirtek, starting at Sebring with this car?
