Maranello, 6 November – This morning at China’s Zhuhai circuit, an F430 GT2 took the top slot in qualifying in its category in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup for tomorrow’s race. This is the third and final round of a series, the first two having been staged as part of the championships organised by the ACO, the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in the American Le Mans Series and the Silverstone 1000 km which is part of the Le Mans Series. The AF Corse team is currently second in the team classification on 36 points, while the leaders, the Ferrari team run by Houston’s Risi Competizione, are not here, as they are only entered in the Petit Le Mans series. The AF Corse car dominated qualifying, in the hands of Gianmaria Bruni, Toni Vilander and Jaime Melo, with a time of 1.35.810, ahead of the Porsche 997 of Marc Lieb and Richard Lietz (1.36.114) and the BMW M3 of Jorg Muller and Dirk Werner (1.36.166.) Fourth is another Ferrari entered by the British CRS Scuderia team and driven by Pierre Heret, Phil Quaife and Andrew Kirkaldy (1.36.210.) The much awaited final race, which runs for six hours, gets underway tomorrow at 12.00 local time.
