blog comments powered by Disqus
|Maranello, 4 May – After a break of almost two months, the FIA World Endurance Championship is back in action this weekend at one of the sport's most iconic venues, the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, which is also home to the Belgian round of the F1 championship. It's not just the variable weather that makes Spa unique, it's also the track layout itself, with its climbs and drops, as it wends its way through the Ardennes forest, giving this event a special flavour. For the second round of this series, the AF Corse team arrives with four cars split equally between two classes, GTE PRO and GTE AM: apart from the established crew of Fisichella and Bruni, the reigning LMS and ILMC champions in the GTE PRO class, the Italian team has also entered Andrea Bertolini and Olivier Beretta, fresh from victory in the Sebring 12 Hours, while in the GTE AM class, they have Perazzini, Cioci and Griffin upholding Ferrari honour in the No. 81 458 GT2. For this crew, also competing in the Le Mans Series, the Spa race represents their debut on the world championship stage. A fourth car, in GTE AM, will be run technically by AF Corse, in partnership with Michael Waltrip Racing, driven by Kauffman, Aguas and Vickers, a crew with plenty of experience in GT and NASCAR racing. There are two more Ferraris entered by Luxury Racing and Krohn Racing, who will also play a role in fighting for the Constructors' title. Yesterday was given over to free practice, with drivers and teams getting to grips with the track, while today there's a 20 minute qualifying session at 15.10 to decide the grid for the race which gets underway on Saturday at 14.30.|
