Number one in qualifying in both Champ Cars and Sportscars

Lola Cars International is looking forward to a successful weekend on the track after setting the pace in qualifying today in two different disciplines.

In Japan, Champ Car ace Juan Montoya claimed pole position in his Target Chip Ganassi Racing Lola for the fourth round of the CART FedEX Championship Series at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit, Motegi, tomorrow.

This is Colombian Montoya's second pole position of the year, the first coming at Nazareth, USA, for round two. Unfortunately that race was postponed due to bad weather so tomorrow will be his first chance this year to turn his pole advantage into a victory.

And in Britain, the Lola B2K/10 sportscar, run by Italian outfit Team Rafanelli, was fastest in the first (of two) qualifying sessions at Silverstone, Northants, ahead of tomorrow's third round of the American Le Mans Series.

Drivers Mimmo Schiattarella, of Italy, and Belgian Didier De Radigues face another qualifying session tomorrow afternoon before the 500km race gets underway at 7pm (BST).
