Team Maranello Concessionaires' testing schedule.
Le Mans Bugatti Circuit
May 29-31

After an action-packed race weekend in the Czech Republic (24/25 May), which saw Team Maranello Concessionaires' car 88 take a podium position, there is no respite for TMC's two Ferrari 360 N/GT race cars as the team head to the Le Mans Bugatti circuit for two and half days of endurance and performance testing. As the series enjoys a break before round five at Donington Park on the 29 June, TMC are taking the opportunity to press ahead with their comprehensive test schedule in order to ensure that the team continue their excellent performance to date in their maiden year in the FIA GT Championship.

All four of TMC's drivers (Kelvin Burt, Jamie Davies, Tim Mullen and Darren Turner) will be present. Andrew Kirkaldy, who will drive with the team during the 24 Hours of Spa in July, will also join the team in France this week. The name of the team's sixth driver for the Spa round of the Championship will be announced shortly.

"The team has had a busy few months competing in the Championship," commented Team Manager, Rod Benoist. "However, our excellent performance to date is partly due to the diligent work we have been undertaking between races. We have had this test at Le Mans planned for quite some time and the Bugatti circuit will enable us to enjoy two and half days of productive endurance work ahead of Spa with one car. Our second car will take part in a number of performance tests and our technical partner, Dunlop, will be with us to continue development work too."
