BACK TO LE MANS SERIES ACTION.

After a three month break, the 2008 Le Mans Series restarts with the 1000 km of Nurburgring from 14th to 17th of August. SPEEDY RACING - TEAM SEBAH are approaching the fourth round of the 2008 Le Mans Series with high expectations.

The pace of the #33 Lola B08/80 Judd in the earlier races of the season was very encouraging, but the team were thwarted on their way to the podium in the last two rounds by new car "teething" problems. The team and their technical partners have worked hard during the summer to enhance the endurance of various components, whilst at the same time, work has been carried out to provide an uplift in the performance of the car.

Bart Hayden, team manager: " We really want to win at the Nurburgring and deliver on the potential that we have shown throughout the year thus far. We have now gained considerable knowledge about the car, and we intend to put this to good use in our quest for the win. The Nurburgring circuit will be challenging for the technical staff in terms of set up and tyre choices, but we are confident in our resources and we will be pushing for the best result possible. The drivers all have experience of the circuit and all three of them have won a Le Mans Series race there in the past. A good result will be the best way to start the last part of the 2008 Le Mans Series and thank all our partners and sponsors for their support. "

Andrea Belicchi : " I have won at the Nurburgring in GT2 with a CPC Ferrari even though it is not one of my favourite tracks. I am happy to be back in action with the Lola and ready to give of my best for a good result. "

Xavier Pompidou : " I like this circuit, there are some sectors where the driver is able to make the difference. I had some very good results there with team Sebah in GT2 and also previously in a prototype with the Ferrari 333 SP, so I hope to continue my successful streak with the Lola. "

Steve Zacchia : " I have also won at Nurburgring in Le Mans Series with the GT1 Ferrari 550 Maranello. I hope we will have the opportunity to climb on the podium next Sunday. "
