ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport wants to reach something to count at the second round of the FIA GT1 World Championship in Silverstone - Christophe Bouchut now in adoption for the team from Saxony

Friedersdorf/Silverstone (rol/ot) Something to count is on the wish list of the German Team ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport, when the races three and four are on program coming weekend (1st /2nd of May) of the FIA GT1 World Championship at Silverstone (England). The bulk of the team from Friedersdorf (Saxony) and the two Lamborghini Murcielago LP670 RS-V are already at the traditional track on Tuesday evening (27th of April). "We had a few repairs to do yet after the season opening in Abu Dhabi. The flight chaos because of the ash cloud didn't leave enough time for us to do that", tells team manager and driver Marc Basseng. "Unfortunately we couldn't make a lot of adjustment changes because of that".

The other drivers of the team are expected at Silverstone on Thursday (29th of April). Between them now the French Christophe Bouchut, which will drive the Lambo #37 together with Basseng instead of the alternative driver Thomas Jager (Chemnitz). The 43-year old Bouchut, three times FIA GT Champion (2000 to 2002), has already been on track for the team ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport in this series and gained the first victory with a Lamborghini in 2007. "Christophe is a very experienced driver that surely can bring us into a ranking in points", underlines team principal Rene Munnich. Like in the United Arab Emirates the cockpit of the Lambo #38, Nicky Pastorelli (Netherlands/Italy) is sharing with Dominik Schwager (Munich).

After the breakdowns and the backmost positions at the Qualifying Race and at the Championship Race (one hour each) in Abu Dhabi the team from Saxony is highly motivated to do better on the 5,9 Kilometers long track of Silverstone. "The main race of Abu Dhabi already showed us the possibility to gain points. But a tire and a transmission failure avoided that", tells Rene Munnich. "We hope that we can do it this time even with such makeshift preparation".
