For the opening round of the 2011 World Touring Car Championships (WTCC), RML debuted its freshly developed FIA Appendix engine, the state-of-the-art GRE (Global Racing Engine), in the highly successful RML Chevrolet Cruze WTCC car.

The engine claimed the first three grid positions during qualifying and each podium spot for the first race. This initial victory was sustained when RML won the WTCC 2011 Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ World Championships for Chevrolet.

The RML GRE engine is a 1.6-litre direct injection turbocharged unit that was designed and built in-house. Using simulation programmes and broad engine experience that stems from Formula One, RML maximised the GRE’s performance and efficiency potential without compromising reliability.
