Andrea Piccini tested the Dams Team's Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT last Monday on the Le Mans-Bugatti track .This test session was scheduled by the French team to continue the car's development and to prepare for the next round of the FIA GT championship in Oschersleben.

The test's outcome was without a doubt positive. The team had a chance to fix some inevitable problems that such a new car can have (it made its debut in Imola on September 5th).The session also allowed Andrea to get more feeling out of the car and to strengthen his relationship with his team. Compared to the last time set on this same track on August 18,the Tuscan driver lowed his time by a second and a half.

"The Murcielago R-GT's development is non stop. Since the car was brought to us, in mid- August, we have continuously worked to improve the car's performance and I think that at the next round, we will see the results of this commitment. In the morning, we did some testing on a dry track and tried out different set ups. But the rain in the afternoon changed our plans. I must say that on a wet track, the Lamborghini did well. On the dry track, the car has made significant progress compared to the debut race in Imola. I like the Oschersleben track and it usually brings me luck. In fact, I won on this German track in the FIA GT championship in 2002.I'm very optimist about this next round. We do know that there's a lot of work ahead of us but we can't wait to back on track."
