LIVERPOOL FC ON TOP AS 2009 'SUPERLEAGUE FORMULA BY SONANGOL' ROARS INTO ACTION

26/06/2009 - Liverpool FC opened the scoring as this year's 'Superleague Formula by Sonangol' roared into action with a four-hour pre-season test session at Magny-Cours in France. The former home of the French Grand Prix stages the opening rounds of the 2009 football-themed championship on Sunday and the competitors were given a chance to fine tune their upgraded V12 race cars today (Friday).

The pace was set by two of last year's front-runners with Adrian Valles powering the Liverpool FC entry to the top of the time sheets, the Spaniard lapping fractionally faster than local French hero Tristan Gommendy in the FC Porto car. Causing an early upset, Kasper Anderson was third quickest for FC Midtjylland, the ambitious Danish club is new to the series.

A total of 15 cars took the track today among them several late driver signings including Ho-Pin Tung representing Athletico Madrid and Duncan Tappy in the Galatasaray entry. Several drivers tipped for the top in 2009 including ex-F1 stars Giorgio Pantano (AC Milan) and Enrique Bernoldi (Clube de Regatas do Flamengo) only completed a handful of shakedown laps and therefore did not set competitive times.
