The Oschersleben circuit in northern Germany near Magdeburg, will host the 4th round of the FIA GT Championship this weekend.

Qualifying duties will be in the capable hands of Jamie Davies, and before heading out to Germany for this weekend's race he said "Oschersleben is a fun circuit to drive but it can also be quite tricky. The difficulty is in getting the perfect set-up and balance for the race. It is normally a physically tough race due to the heat and the fact that there are no long straights for rest breaks. I finished 3rd in 2007, but I am confident we can better that result with Scuderia Ecosse this year".

Scuderia Ecosse team principal Stewart Roden commented "The team are doing a fantastic job and each day we are edging closer to our first 2008 podium position. Oschersleben will be a tough race, but with the latest tyre developments from Pirelli, and following on from the impressive race pace we showed at Adria, we are confident of a good result on Sunday".

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 FIA GT qualifying will be shown on Men&Motors on Saturday the 5th July at 17.15pm (CET).
