2017 Renault-Sport R.S.01 GT3 by Gtronix McChip-DKR
MCCHIP-DKR made A STUNNING ANNOUNCEMENT
Secrets are made in order to be disclosed in a well timed manner. Mcchip-dkr in Mechernich recently revealed a big surprise with regards to the upcoming racing season 2017: A team named Gtronix-mcchip-dkr will be launched in the class SPX during the VLN series (properly the Veranstaltergemeinschaft Langstreckenpokal Nürburgring means Association of Nürburgring Endurance Cup Organisers) and the 24-Hour-Race at the Nürburgring with a Renault R.S. 01 GT3! Together with the indispensable support of Renault-Sport, Pirelli as the tire manufacturer, and the multi-oil company Gtronix as well, a highly motivated team creates an ideal foundation for this very interesting project. So far, it is for certain that Heiko Hammel and Dieter Schmidtmann are two of the drivers. In a short time additional drivers – and perhaps women drivers? - will be announced.
The planning at mcchip-dkr for this utmost fascinating motorsport adventure had started in October 2016 which means a relatively narrow time window for this necessary vehicle conversion. In order to set up a racing car for the Nordschleife it demands a high number of various adjustments as the class SPX-regulations are strict. In addition, the drivers have to get used to the racing bolide.
The mcchip-dkr in-house infrastructure makes it possible – after the start-up of mcchip-dkr Engineering and mcpipes – to plan and implement this promising racing car in Mechernich, as the CAD-constructions, welding processes as well as the special parts production are consolidated at that location. The entire project means a huge challenge for all the involved departments. At the same time it offers the opportunity to gain important experience in the automotive field.
All participants at mcchip-dkr look forward to a thrilling motorsport season and hope to stir up the VLN-starting grid with their Renault R.S. 01 GT3. These days first test drives will be performed in the Italian Misano.
