QUIFEL-ASM Team misses out on podium places at Nurburgring

The end of the 1,000km race at Nurburgring leaves a bitter taste for the QUIFEL-ASM Team, which took the Lola B05/40 AER to third place in the LMP2 class, but watched victory slip away after knocks from trailing drivers.

Olivier Pla was the first to go round and went up from fifth to third position. Then Miguel Pais do Amaral managed to take the Lola B05/40 AER to second position, however two knocks from trailing drivers forced the car into the pits and down the leader board.

The last part of the race was taken at blazing pace, with Olivier Pla being consistently the fastest on the circuit in the LMP2 class, but this was not enough to lift them from the fifth position in which they finished.

The QUIFEL-ASM Team and the Lola B05/40 AER clearly showed that the gearbox problems of previous races have been overcome and that they are ready for good results, especially with the arrival of a new car next year.

The Silverstone race, which closes the Le Mans Series calendar, could still bring the hoped for good result to the only Portuguese team in the championship.
