Forgeline GS1R12:38:00 PM
Forgeline Motorsports’ GS1R is the FIA Homologated wheel for the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R — a competition-ready racecar built by Pratt and Miller to global GT4 standards.
The exceptionally strong, American-made GS1R wheel is designed exclusively for racing, featuring one-piece forged monoblock construction with strength-enhancing I-beamed spokes. It is machined from a single forging of 6061-T6 aluminum and carries a 2,100-pound street tire load rating.
“It’s an honor for Forgeline Motorsports to be selected as a supplier to the exciting Camaro GT4.R program,” said David Schardt, president, Forgeline Motorsports. “With two decades of racing experience under our belt, Forgeline has a proven record and understands what it takes to design and build a strong, lightweight wheel for the rigors of the racetrack.”
Forgeline wheels were used successfully with the 5th gen Camaro in Continental Challenge with Stevenson Motorsport two years ago winning a GS championship in 2015. Ironically, the Stevenson Team will be the first team in Continental Challenge to compete with the new GT4.R Camaro.
Black Dog Racing will be fielding a two-car team in Pirelli World Challenge (GTS class). It is also eligible for additional GT4-based series around the world.
