Enge won a toss and got second

The tradition of changing drivers for qualifying was changed for today and team Modena selected to toss a coin to decide qualifying driver. Tomas Enge was lucky to choose the right side and won over his Spanish team-mate Antonio Garcia. The Czech driver qualified the car and will also start the Autosport 1000 km of Silverstone race. He got the second place on the GT1 grid for the final race of the Le Mans Series 2008. As usual, he will drive an Aston Martin DBR9.

Tomas Enge: "Our team used to switch Antonio and me each race and the one who did qualifying also started the race. However, the season final is an odd race we decided to toss a coin and I won. We decided tyres which are not the best ones for a quick lap but they are very good over the whole stint in the race. This is the reason why I used them in the qualifying and finished "only" second. The most important thing is the race. If we won and our main rivals did not finish we would win the championship. We will do everything to win and what happens elsewhere is without our power."
