The Scuderia Ecosse team will be hoping that the promise of warmer conditions at the southern French circuit of Nogaro this weekend, will boost their chances of scooping maximum points from Round 8 of the FIA GT Championship.

The team has pulled out all the stops to ensure that the car is in peak race condition as the season draws towards its conclusion in November. During a busy few weeks back at team HQ car 62 has been significantly modified and heads out to Nogaro with the latest 2008 aero package, a fresh engine and having had the benefit of some valuable technical input and advice from Michelotto.

As the team's trucks rolled out of the Scuderia Ecosse HQ, team principal Stewart Roden commented, "We have known for some time now that the engine we had been running was not performing as it should. Therefore since Brno we have spent a considerable amount of time and effort overhauling key parts of the car and we are now heading for Nogaro with a car that I believe is capable of reaching its full potential."

Keep right up to date with the Team's progress this weekend with the extensive TV coverage now being offered during the 2008 season. The TV Schedule for the UK is as follows: Live Coverage of Round 8 of the FIA GT 2008 Nogaro race will be shown on Motors TV (Sky channel 413) throughout the race weekend. Race highlights will be broadcast on ITV4 and Sky Sports (See TV listings for up-to-date schedules).
