June 28th 2006 - The third FIA GT round at Ochersleben will be a bit special for Matteo Bobbi, who'll celebrate his bithday on Sunday.

The event schedule provides the first practice session on Friday from 13.30 to 15.00 and the second on Saturday from 9.40 to 11.10. Qualifying session is programmed the same day from 15.15 to 15.45. On Sunday, after the moring warm-up, race will start at 13.30.

Matteo Bobbi
"It'll be a hard race: the ballast has more impact on GT2 cars than on GT1 and our 58kg probably will'be a consistent handicap. We'll work on the setup to reduce the effect of the additional weight: it would be fantastic to score a win in my bithday!"
