Jan Lammers/RfH Team 6th in Istanbul Friday practice after only running 9 laps due to electrical problems

Malaysia's Alex Yoong arrived at Istanbul on Thursday morning and immediately settled down to study the Istanbul circuit by walking it and conferred with the RfH team boss Jan Lammers and the engineers in preparation for this sunday's Le Mans Series Istanbul 1000km in Turkey.

With Yoong and Lammers driving, the team managed only 9 laps in the one hour practice session on Friday due to problems with a starter and the ECU - the team only managed 2 flying laps and had to settle for sixth fastest with a time of 1:47.711.

With rain being forecast for Saturday, the team hopes to have the electrical bugs solved before qualifying.
