Mixed fortunes for the Lamborghini Murciélago in Warm-up

23.09.2007: Mixed fortunes for the Lamborghini Murciélago in Warm-up

There were mixed fortunes for the Lamborghini Murciélago cars during the 30-minute warm-up at Brno. The nr 28 Reiter Lamborghini car of Kox and Menten set the fastest time, after also topping the time sheets in second free practice.

The nr 7 All-Inkl car also went well, setting the fourth-fastest time, but then stopped at the side of the track, possibly with a differential problem similar to that suffered in Adria.

Second-fastest was the nr 33 Aston Martin of Wendlinger and Sharp, with the nr 2 Vitaphone Maserati MC 12 of Montanari and Ramos third.

In GT2, the nr 62 Ferrari 430 GT2, which will start from second on today's grid, was fastest in the warm-up. Polemen Müller and Vilander were second-fastest, ahead of Ruberti and Mediani in the nr 52 Edil Cris car.
