QUIFEL-ASM Team hoping for a good result in the 1,000km at Nurburgring

Training sessions begin on 15th August for the fourth Le Mans Series race, this time at the German circuit at Nurburgring. QUIFEL-ASM Team sets out with high hopes and renewed vigour, after a good result in the Le Mans 24 hours, where it managed to take the Lola B05/40 AER across the finish line in fourth place in the LMP2 class.

In previous years the Portuguese team has got on well at the German circuit, gaining a victory in 2006, and third place in last year's race. This year Miguel Pais do Amaral and Olivier Pla will be looking for an even better result.

While awaiting the race on the German circuit, QUIFEL-ASM Team has been involved in two days of tests on the Estoril Race Track as the development team for Dunlop tyres. Different types of tyres were tested, with the team getting good results both in terms of performance and durability, which bodes well for the remaining races in the Le Mans Series Championship. The team used the time to iron out a few problems with the gearbox control that have affected some races.

Training sessions for this fourth and penultimate circuit race will start on 15th August with two sessions of free practice at 13:15 and 18:00 (Lisbon time). On Saturday, after a further morning session of free practice, the qualification round will take place to decide positions on the starting grid for the race due to take place on the Sunday at 11:00.

The 1,000km race in Nurburgring will have extensive television coverage, with Eurosport 2 channel covering events live from 11:00 on Sunday, for a total transmission time of 3 hours and 45 minutes.
