QUIFEL-ASM Team sets off on fourth line of grid

The QUIFEL-ASM Team today secured a place on the fourth line of the starting grid in the LMP2 class, in qualification for the Monza 1,000 km race scheduled for tomorrow. The Lola B05/40 AER’s lap time was 1:39.998, which was the session’s eighth best performance. The Italian circuit is the venue for the second event in the Le Mans Series Championship 2008.

Qualification die not go well for teams which, like the QUIFEL-ASM Team, opted to take part in only the second half of qualification which lasts a total of 20 minutes. When the team was about to enter the track, an accident left a lot of residue on the track and affected the performance of driver Oliver Pla.

In the morning free practice session, driver Oliver Pla clocked a magnificent time of 1:39.460, which was the sixth best in the LMP2 class, but when driver Miguel Pais do Amaral was preparing to enter the track, the team detected a problem in the exhaust pipe, which led to it missing out on the second half of the session.

The team and Miguel Pais do Amaral hope to carry out final tuning in tomorrow’s warm up session.

The Eurosport channel will broadcast the start of the Monza 1,000 km live Sunday at 11:45 a.m. This channel will also show a race summary at 18:30 and 22:30 Sunday, which will also be broadcast on Monday and Tuesday, 28th and 29th April. The race will also be shown on Motors TV, with two live feeds at 11:35 and 16:00. On Monday, 28th April, this channel will broadcast highlights of the race at 17:55.
