Get "Ready to Race" in 2009:
KTM is giving professional teams and individual racing drivers the opportunity to attend a full-day track test session with its championship-winning X-BOW GT4 race car, ahead of the 2009 motorsport season.

The event will be held at Circuit Paul Ricard (Le Castellet, France) on March 17–18, 2009. Guests will be given an introduction to KTM’s motorsport and factory support programmes, before a drivers’ briefing and extensive vehicle test session.

The KTM X-BOW GT4, which is eligible for entry in a variety of GT championships across Europe, is designed exclusively for use on track. The Dallara-designed carbon fibre monocoque delivers both light weight and high chassis rigidity – for excellent handling and safety – which, combined with class-leading aerodynamics thanks to the racing underbody with diffusor, enables the car to achieve 1.8g lateral acceleration on semi-slick tyres.

In its inaugural season in the 2008 GT4 European Cup, the KTM X-BOW swept to a 1-2-3 finish in the "Sports Light" championship at the hands of German-based Reiter Engineering. The fantastic result and comparatively low running costs for the car throughout the season reinforce the manufacturer’s ‘Ready to Race’ ethos.

The cost to attend each track test session is €990 (exclusive of tax, travel and accommodation), which is refundable on purchase of a car.
