2008 KTM X-Bow Races to Inaugural Sports Light Champs Review

KTM X-Bow races to inaugural Sports Light championship. The KTM X-Bow secured a sensational one-two-three championship finish in the debut season of the Sports Light category of the GT4 European Cup.

German X-Bow driver Christopher Haase was crowned Sports Light champion after claiming first place in class in the final race of the season at Nogaro earlier this month. Team mates Denis Retera and Catharina Felser finished second and third for the season respectively, ahead of Sports Light entrants driving Donkervoorts and Lotuses.

The Reiter Engineering-run KTM X-Bows dominated proceedings throughout the 18-round championship, often claiming finishes ahead of more powerful ‘senior’ GT4 Aston Martins, Ford Mustangs and BMW Z4Ms. True to KTM’s ‘Ready to Race’ philosophy, the X-Bows competed in near-standard road specification, with minor revisions made only to meet FIA safety regulations.
