Interest in the new Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT racer is continuing to grow with crack French outfit DAMS and English FIA GT entrants Creation Autosportif both linked with running the 6.2-litre V12 sportscar next year. The Murcielago R-GT, developed by Reiter Engineering in Germany, has had a difficult start to its racing career. Its debut was delayed until the final round of the FIA GT series at Monza and the car, suffering from a lack of straight line speed around the ultra-fast Italian circuit, was withdrawn after qualifying. A scheduled entry into the Le Mans 1000 kms earlier this month was withdrawn, but progress has been made in testing and Lamborghini are satisfied with the project's progress. DAMS and Creation Autosportif are two teams in talks with Lamborghini over running the R-GT next year. Leading French teams DAMS are looking to use the Murcielago R-GT to spearhead their return to top line motor racing. They have a wealth of experience running sportscars and plan a two car entry into next year's FIA GT series, the second car expected to be run for a wealthy amateur pairing. Meanwhile Creation Autosportif who ran two Lister Storms in this year's FIA GT series are keen to take part in the four race Le Mans Endurance Series next year and with the Lister ineligible, the R-GT is their favoured option.
