#82 LEADS GT2 IN THE RAIN

The hands of the famous Rolex clock on the Le Mans start/finish line have turned a complete circle and the most famous sportscar race in the world has now passed its halfway mark.

The Rosso red Ferrari 430 GT of Gianmaria Bruni, Jaime Melo and Mika Salo is still holding the lead in the GT2 class -- a lap in hand - and Ferraris are filling the first five places on the leader board.

The rain that was forecast for early Sunday morning duly arrived just after 4:00am, just as Gimmi Bruni was finishing a triple stint in the car. All is going well, with no unforeseen problems, and all three drivers have taken their turn behind the wheel.

Gimmi Bruni exited the car looking as fresh as when he got in: "Yes, it was okay; really okay in fact. When you are in the car in the dark, you can get into a rhythm and it's not so difficult to do nearly three hours. I didn't have any problems at all, and it just started to rain in Indianapolis as I came through there on my way to the pits so I was lucky. It is Jaime who is not so lucky to have to drive in the wet!"
