The builders were Steinmetz and Conrero....
I am also interested in any other races that the Opel GT was raced in....

One of the writers, Maurice van Sevecotte owns one of the four original Conrero GTs.
I met the guy once and he sure knows what he's talking about.
I have no contact but maybe the the people at petrolpics can help you out with that.

After a furious battle against a field of fast Porsche 911's and 914/6's, Paolo Monti and Sicilian driver Totò Calascibetta scored an impressive 2-litre class win, 9th place overall, one lap behind the winners Nino Vaccarella-Toine Hezemans in the Alfa Romeo 33.3.
Possibly this was the best result of the car. The other Opel GTs driven by Giorgio Pianta-Pino Pica and Gianpaolo Benedini-Giuseppe Marotta did not finish the race.

After doing some web research, I found a couple of web sites were the car has been discussed.
www.opelgt.com is a forum on the car. They have some photos and specs. The books are also mentioned.

Are there any videos on any of their races?
Thank you, Jim
