POINTS FINISH FOR JOS MENTEN

For the seventh meeting of the season the FIA GT1 caravan travelled on down to Portimao, Portugal. In the sunny Algarve region - and quite a contrast to the cold Nurburg experienced two weeks previously - Jos Menten once again was in the points. Together with team mate Frank Kechele Menten clinched the eighth place in the World Championship race. The race was won by Vitaphone Racing, whereby the Maserati team is pretty sure of grabbing all the titles. The second Reiter Engineering Lamborghini also finished in the points, whereby Hans Reiter's team has strengthened its second place in the team championship.

During the practice on Friday it was soon apparent that the car's balance was not up to scratch. Both in the free practice as in the pre-qualifying the Lamborghini Murci
