Enge's scored second Le Mans Series win in 2008

Tomas Enge was able to convert the qualifying speed and optimism into a delightful result also in the 1000 km Nurburgring race. Together with Antonio Garcia completely dominated the whole race to win the GT1 class. It is second win of the Czech-Spanish duo of the Modena Team in this year's Le Mans Series. Both drivers controlled the race behind the wheel of an Aston Martin DBR9. Tomas got the pole position and also started the race and immediately pulled 20 seconds gap after first 30 minutes. He is third in the championship standings.

Tomas Enge: "Everything was okay today. We were a bit worried if the tyres would last the first stint which I did. At the end, our selection proved to be right. Our competitors chose the harder compound while we used the softer one. They worked perfectly not only at the beginning but also during the whole race. I managed to pull a solid gap after the start. When I handed the car to Antonio for the first time we had almost half a minute advantage."
