With extensive preparation and late night tuning before the first Canadian Touring Car event held at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, RMP Competizione was ready to head out for the 1st and 2nd rounds. With the cars running well and being reliable all weekend, only a few minor setup adjustments were needed between sessions. The first weekend turned out to be a great success! Michael DelleDonne did excellent finishing on the podium in 3rd place out of an overall 30+ cars that weekend.
With a week to prepare for the next double header CTCC and GT sprints race at Calabogie Motorsports Park, the cars were fine tuned and ready to hit the track. Rocco Marciello and Michael DelleDonne did very well in both series bringing lap times down to 2:16 and running at the top of the field. The cars fine tuning truly paid off when both drivers qualified 1st and 2nd and even out qualified some higher HP machines. Overall, RMP had a strong finish in both series that weekend. The cars raced reliably over 4 hours and Rocco rounded off the weekend with 3 podium finishes.

A lot of preparation for the 2016 race season was done at RMP Motors during the cold long winter . After winning the GT1 and GT2 Championships in 2015, RMP Competizione decided to prepare the BMW E90 touring cars for the 2016 race season. With new engines, suspensions, modifications and tuning under the belt, the pair of 2006 325i’s powered by BMW’s N52 motors were ready for testing.
The first planed test day was held at Shannonville Motorsports Park near Belleville, ON on May 7th.
The two E90 touring cars were both setup and dialed in to perfection! First time out with the E90′s in 2016 was a great success considering the cars had were in pieces a couple months earlier. Rocco Marciello and Michael Delledonne were piloting the cars to very consistent and fast lap times all day, on the slick FABI circuit.
The long and hard hours of preparation showed to be worth while with the test sessions going flawlessly.
The first race event will be held at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on May 14-15 and we expect it to be a great one. Be sure to follow RMP Competizione for updates and race results.
The most frequently needed and important vehicle maintenance is often the most forgotten. Changing your oil at the recommended intervals helps protect engines from wear and damage. Constant exposure to heat, moisture and air leads to oil degradation. The end result is oil thickening, sludge build up, carbon deposits and corrosive wear. Sludge in your engine can block up oil passages and cause crucial engine components such as BMW’s Vanos system to begin to stick or even fail. To keep your vehicle running at top performance we recommend high quality synthetic oil services every 8000 Kilometers or every 6 months whichever comes first. For extra protection we also offer TUV approved engine flushes and Moly Slip oil additives.

The excellent start to the 2015 season was a sign of what to expect from RMP Competizione . With many hours of preparation and tuning, all 3 RMP Competizione entries were found at the top of the charts for the remainder of the 2015 events. In GT2, John Hansen and Marek Petruczynik, battled most of the season for 1st place in class. In GT1, Rocco Marciello, lead the field most of the season, winning most feature races and finishing each race with excellent reliability and performance. At the second Calabogie event of the season, RMP was found on top of the rankings in all 3 races. Rocco Marciello won the feature race over 45 seconds ahead of the field with the fastest GT sprints time of the weekend. Team mate John Hansen finished second overall, and 1st in GT2 well ahead of the rest of his class. This weekend put RMP in the lead of the points standings in both GT1 and GT2.
The last race of the season was held at Canadian Tire Motorsport park, with the GT1 championship already locked in, Rocco Marciello ran his GT1 Triumph TR7 to another victory padding his points lead. GT2 driver John Hansen in his BMW E36 ran an excellent weekend taking the 1st place position from Marek Petruczynik winning the GT2 championship back to back.
The 2015 season was wrapped up with a Grand Finale Fun race, that was won overall by Marek Petruczynik in his EX Cascar Monte Carlo, we congratulate him on his victory and personal fastest lap of the season of 1.28.
This put RMP Competizione ahead of the competition with Rocco Marciello winning 2012-13 and 2015 GT1 Championship, John Hansen winning 2014-2015 GT2 Championship, and Marek Petruczynik came 2nd in GT2 in his first full GT2 season.

With testing and the first event under our belt in 2015, the second event was held at Calabogie Motorsports Park May 29-30. RMP Competizione had two cars entered at this event, our GT1 Triumph Tr7 piloted by Rocco Marciello and a RMP sponsored and tuned ex Cascar Monte Carlo piloted by Marek in Gt2. We felt confident going into this event after some chassis setup changes and tuning, which showed to be worth while. Rocco took 1st in class in the first race of the weekend finishing the race on slicks in pouring rain, Marek finished 2nd which was a excellent start to the weekend. The main feature race of the weekend also went well, with Rocco starting off the race amazingly and leading the entire race finishing first in class and first overall with the fastest GT1 lap time of the weekend, Marek also did well finishing fourth in GT2.
These results have RMP Competizione leading GT1 and GT2 in the championship so far.

Our 2012-2013 Championship winning Gt1 Triumph finished with a tie for 2nd place in 2014, only running a partial season due to driver Rocco Marciello injuring his hand after the Calabogie race.
