A sec­ond Reiter-built Chevro­let Ca­maro joined the fray re­cently, this car owned by Glenn Smith and driven by Smith and fel­low am­a­teur racer John De Veth. The eight-litre ma­chine — which is less than two sea­sons old and ran in the Aus­tralian GT se­ries — fea­tures a six-speed se­quen­tial Holinger box and trac­tion con­trol.
