Enge on LMGT1 pole

Tomas Enge got for himself, team-mate Antonio Garcia and the whole Team Modena the LMGT1 pole position for tomorrow's 1000 km Nurburgring. He dominated the qualifying session with an Aston Martin DBR9. He pulled gap over one second to the closest competitor which was one of Corvettes. The performance of the American cars was the thing about which Enge was thinking after the last practice as he was not sure about pace before the qualifying. The Czech driver sorted the question with a superb performance and beat all rivals. Tomas will also start the race.

Tomas Enge: "I think that our work with thy tyres paid off. Even today morning we worked with the tyres like on Friday. We tried to find the best solution. We bore fruits of or work in the qualifying. The first look on the times suggests that we dominate our rivals but the race will be long as always and not the easiest one at Nurburgring. Overtaking is difficult here and it may bring collisions in the fight especially with LMP2 cars. Those prototypes are not faster than us on the straights, so they will try to overtake entering the corners. It this is always tricky with almost 50 cars on the track. We have to keep our speed and also be more cautious than normal."
