In March 2005, during the 75th International Motor Show of Geneva, Spyker officially introduced its new race car, the Spyker C8 Spyder GT2R. This race car is the race version of the production car Spyker C8 Spyder and is entirely developed in-house by Spyker Squadron.
The Spyker C8 Spyder GT2R runs the Audi V8 engine used in all road cars. The race version of this engine has been developed in-house by Spyker Squadron's technical team, headed by Peter van Erp and is mated to a Hewland six speed sequential gearbox.
The company has already won two major victories wîth its new race model, the Spyder GT2R. This race car obtained two podium places in 2005 by finishing second in its class in September 2005 during the LMES 1000km of Nürburgring (LMGT class), Germany and in November 2005 during the FIA GT (GT class) race in Dubai.
Inspired by the encouraged results in 2005, Spyker has expanded its 2006 race program in 2006 by entering two factory Spyker C8 Spyder GT2Rs in 10 races including Sebring, 24-Hours of Le Mans, all Le Mans Endurance series races and some FIA GT races.
The Spyker C8 Spyder GT2R is also available to privateers. The factory provides full service to privateers throughout Europe and the Únited States.
As a serious and challenging participant during the LMES and FIA GT races, Spyker Squadron offers interesting opportunities to sponsors. By becoming a sponsor, the sponsor and its guests also become members of the highly select inner circle of the world's most renowned race events such as the 24-hours of Le Mans and the 12-hours of Sebring.Source - Spyker
