Le Mans, Sunday morning 15 June, 08.15 hrs

Going strong into the morning

"The Ferrari has gone really well during the night" says Anthony Lazzaro, who stepped out of the Risi Competizione Ferrari 360 after a long stint to eight o'clock in the morning. "We have been doing 3:14s in the night, not far off our qualifying time, and I reckon I'm getting the hang of Le Mans now!"

The Risi Competizione Ferrari spent the first quarter of the event as a regular visitor to its pit, having the electrical and fuel systems checked top to bottom until a faulty ignition sensor was detected on the flywheel, the most time-consuming job left until last.

Since 10 o'clock on Saturday evening Lazzaro, Ralf Kelleners and Terry Borcheller have been driving the Risi Ferrari (#94) to the limit, but the Calpoint backed car is still 10th in class with much to do in the last eight hours of the race.

The team's second car, the ACEMCO backed Ferrari (#95) was leading the N-GT class overall at half distance, but Johnny Mowlem was forced out of the race at Mulsanne with a blown engine.
