Norma M20F Arrives in USA

Steve Trindade, President of Automotive Technology Group, announced that the first Norma M20F LMP race car arrived today in the US. Pictures of the car before it was shipped were shared and are shown here.

ATG will be running this first car in the new North American Modern Endurance Challenge (NAMEC) Series. With the arrival of the car, we would like to extend an invitation to all of you to visit our facility to see the car and discuss driving and /or sales opportunities.

Though the Norma M20F is new to the US, it has been competing very successfully in Europe since 2004, winning championships in France, Italy and the UK. So far in 2007, the M20F has won 3 of the 4 races contested in England and France. We expect to carry on the winning tradition here in the U.S. Information on the Norma M20F will be added to our website as it becomes available.
