The second round of the GT Sprints Championship was held at Shanonville Motorsports Park. We made some motor changes before the weekend and went into the weekend hoping for the best. Qualifying in 1st was a good sign for what was to come the rest of the weekend. After a great qualifying we finished all 3 races in 1st place, and received maximum points towards are GT1 championship. The RMP Competzione team is very proud of our accomplishments so far this season as we are already leading the championship with 100 point lead over the current 2nd place team.
The next round is being held at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park June 22-23.
Stay tuned for updates.
The first race event in the Ontario GT Sprints Championship for 2013 was held at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. After a long winter it was great to get out to the track for some Friday testing to prepare for the races on the weekend. The only change to the car for 2013 was the addition of a power steering unit.
Still running our lower powered spare motor we were surprised that we were able to successfully finish with two 2nd places and a 1st place on our first weekend out in 2013.
Getting consistent lap times and only losing to a higher HP Trans Am car,we were extremely happy with our results.
With these results we are already sitting in 1st place in the championship so far.
The second round of the 2013 race season is being held at Shanonville May 25-26.
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.

After a tough mid-season engine failure due to a valve train problem during practice for the 3rd race weekend of the year, a spare lower HP engine was installed to continue the season in hopes of still winning the championship. Without knowing how the engine would perform we headed out to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP) for the 4th race weekend. The spare engine ran well but not as fast or consistent as our original engine. We were able to come in a respectable 4th place, which kept us in the first place position going into the next race weekend. However, some tuning and setup was needed for faster lap times.
The next race weekend was held at Calabogie Motorsports Park. With it being our first time racing on the full long track, we had to learn the circuit quickly in order to have a successful weekend. Once we became familiar with the circuit, our lap times improved and we were able to pull off an amazing race start and take the trophy for 1st place overall. As a result, the win basically clinched us the GT1 championship title.
Moving on to CTMP for the last two race weekends, all we had to do was finish the races and collect points to secure the title. With the championship already in hand, we didn’t take any unnecessary risks and closed the season with many great finishes.
We won the championship in our RMP built and tuned tube chassis TR7. Rocco Marciello, owner of RMP Motors, piloted the TR7 to victory with 337 points over the second place contender with 167 points.
RMP Competizione would also like to congratulate our fellow teammate, Michael Delle Donne, on his 2nd place in the GT3 class championship in his RMP tuned BMW e90 325.
Preparation for the 2013 race season has already begun at RMP Motors and we expect it to be a great one!
The second race event of the season was held at Shannonville Motorsport Park. We made some small changes to the cars and the preparation served us well. Our GT1 Triumph TR7 was the fastest GT Sprints contender all weekend. We qualified first and that was a sign of what was to follow for the weekend. We finished all 3 races in first well ahead of the rest of the field with over a 10 second lead in all 3 races. Our GT3 BMW 325 also did well finishing the weekend in 1st place as well.
The results from this weekend has us in 1st place in the championship in GT1 and Gt3 so far, and we hope to continue the rest of the season with as good results.
The next race is being held at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (Mosport) on June 30 – July 1st weekend.
After a long winter, all the preparation for the first race weekend showed to be worth while. With both race cars running well and turning good lap times at Mosport (now called Canadian Tire Motorsport Park). Our E90 race car in GT3 running our low power motor was able to run a respectable lap time of 1:33, and finish all 3 races in 2nd place, putting our driver M. DELLEDONNE in 1st place overall in the championship thus far. Our GT1 tube chassis race car was able to get down to some very fast lap times, and we believe we will be contenders for both the GT1 and GT3 Motul GT Sprints championships in this year!
We will be racing at Shannonville Motorsport Park on May 26-27 with both cars.
RMP Motors Competizione is ready for the 2012 Motul GT Sprints race season. We finished well in 2011 with a GT1 3rd place overall and GT3 3rd place over all with only competing in 5 out of 8 race weekends, it was a great overall season with many podium finishes. Keep checking back on our website for updates after each race weekend we compete in!
