Supporters of the British GT will be the first in the UK to see the stunning KTM X-BOW GT4 race car in championship competition this season.

KTM's X-BOW service partner for the north-west of England, ABG Motorsport, plans to run a FIA-approved GT4 model in the British GT series this season.

Announced yesterday at the SRO's British GT media launch, ABG's campaign will be the first competitive outing for the X-BOW in a domestic British championship. KTM successfully debuted the X-BOW GT4 in the Sports Light class of the European GT4 last season under the management of experienced GT outfit, Reiter Engineering, dominating each round and claiming the first three championship places in class.


Peter Hignet, proprietor of ABG Motorsport, said: "We're very excited about the prospect of running a X-BOW in British GT this season.  The car is an exceptional feat of advanced and innovative engineering, and we're confident that our expertise will help deliver a really strong showing."

Jeff Lau, KTM's UK X-BOW manager, said: "ABG Motorsport have a formidable GT track record and have put a lot of faith in the car and its capabilities.  The ‘Ready to Race' X-BOW was mixing it up with cars in more senior classes in the European GT4 series last season and we're excited that British GT crowds will see ABG's entry dicing with the Astons, Ferraris and Lamborghinis this year."

The first round of the British GT championship takes place on 11 - 13 April at Oulton Park.
