Euromotor International, often shortened as Euromotor (or using several other monikers) is a German-based racing team, which operates at several levels of automobile racing (mostly at open-wheel and touring car levels). The city of Mönchengladbach, at North Rhine-Westphalia State, houses their main headquarters since the inception of the team, at late 1950s. In 2019, it will make its debut at the Auto Reject World Series.
Euromotor also run through direct ownership or outright partnership several racing teams around the world and at several levels of racing. Among those teams connected with Euromotor are Equipe Fantomette (their GT/endurance racing arm, based at Colmar, France), V.I.D.A. (a Brazilian-based team, currently on hiatus), Grand Honshu Racing (their Asian arm, based at Tsukuba, Japan) and Gotham Racing International (American-based racing team, currently racing at rallycross and other open-wheel series)
Euromotor gained notoriety in 1989 when they made Mario Hytten the WTCM's highest paid driver at the time - taking home over DM 2,200,000 over the course of the season, with teammate Maurizio Sandro Sala also pocketing just under DM 2 million as well. A combination of a lack of effort following his newly found riches and a hideously outclassed car saw Hytten fail to qualify for any races in 1989.
