QUIFEL-ASM Team ready for the race

Fifth-fastest time in Barcelona

The QUIFEL-ASM Team achieved the fifth best time in the LMP2 class in qualification for the Catalonia 1,000 km, which begins tomorrow. The Lola B05/40 AER recorded a lap time of 1:36:641. This race also marks the start of the Le Mans Series 2008 Championship.

The Portuguese team's result points to a good race, as the time recorded is just 5 tenths of a second behind the third best time.

This morning free practice sessions took place, in which the QUIFEL-ASM Team also managed the fifth-best time, with 1:36:531. The team made use of that period to further tune the car for the race.

The Portuguese team, together with technicians from Dunlop, have opted for a tyre composition that would allow for greater consistency over the 1,000 km, on what is a particularly demanding track in terms of tyre composition and on which resistance is the main challenge.

The first 45 minutes of the 1,000km will be broadcast live, Sunday starting at 10.15 a.m. on the Eurosport channel. This channel will broadcast 30 minutes of race highlights at 10.30 p.m. Sunday, and again at 7.30 a.m. on Monday, 7th April. The event will also be broadcast live on Motors TV for a total of four and a half hours including the start and end of the race.
