CHRISTIAN MONTANARI RUN THE EIGHT FIA GT2 IN NOGARO

The driver from San Marino Republic aim to the French podium

Eigth round of Fia GT world Championship is just around the corner. On Sunday October 5th Fia GT circus will be on Nogaro's Paul Armagnac Circuit for the second time in his history.

3.636 km long, Paul Armagnac Circuit is in the Gers region, in the south of France. With the circuit having undergone a total and impressive renovation recently, it now boasts state-of-the-art facilities. The track is technical and quite challenging, with long straights and some slow corners. Nogaro is popular with the spectators, partly due to the excellent view they can get of the racing.

In 2007 Christian Montanari, driving MC12 Maserati of the team Vitaphone, gained the 3rd place in that race that was, last year, last but one Championship's race. This year there are still three races to the end, now the title chases are beginning to reach their climax, and France's circuit could make sure the first crowns or, on the contrary, open again the battle giving a spectacular final rush.

Antonio Cazzago, AF Corse Team Manager, declared: "We are concentrating on getting a good result. We hope that the nr 51 car will have a good result - we would like to get a win before the end of the season. The problems we had in Brno should have all be solved. Biagi and Montanari are a very good crew, and they deserve a good result; they have had bad luck for the last few rounds."

Christian Montanari:

"We arrive at the third-from-last race willing to get back the first places of the ranking. The last race's results were really good, that makes us charged up. The weather will surely be decisive also in Nogaro, where we have a pretty technical circuit, with long straights. The weather will surely be wintry, rain is foreseen already for the free practice. Thomas, I and the whole team are ready, we have the precise intention to get a good result wit dry weather, rain or even snow."
