UltimateGT Announces Partnership with Race Tech Magazine

For Immediate Release

Indianapolis, IN (March 8, 2016): UltimateGT announces its partnership with Race Tech Magazine, bringing the SHIFT in sports car racing to the pages of the world’s leading motorsport technology magazine. Race Tech prides itself on delivering content with passion, vision, dedication, and determination, and UGT will share these values in this new partnership.

This exciting concept will bring the motorsports industry back to the fans, drivers, sponsors and engineers, with Race Tech’s new title Track Car Performance – creating the SHIFT that UltimateGT dreams of – ripping up the rulebook and starting over from a basic level. Race Tech joins UGT in stripping down the politics and shifting the organizational model to function at a more rooted level.

“The pioneering spirit of motorsports has, for too long, been neutered by things like the balance of performance, post-race penalties, and spec series, all done in the name of competition,” said William Kimberley, Editor-in-Chief of Race Tech International. “Dougie Livingston and his UGT team are the right ones to bring this change to the industry.”

Race Tech brings 20 years of experience in publishing motorsports related content, including technical racing information from all aspects of the sport – from the concept of the car to the starting grid, and everything in between.

“We are excited to partner with Race Tech,” said Livingston, UltimateGT Series Principal. “Coming into the North American market, they are focused on the same levels of innovation that we are. It’s a perfect match.”

UltimateGT (UGT) is bringing a SHIFT to the model of GT racing. We are moving away from “manufactured finishes” towards a stripped down model where the only balance of power is the driver. Race weekends will feature a fast lap specific event, back-to-back one-hour series and a four-hour event. Multiple specifications of cars will be allowed with engine displacement determining the competition class. In 2016, UGT will host four events across the eastern half of North America, allowing all levels of teams and drivers to compete.
