Great to see a Lamborghini Murciélago R-GT racing in the AMLS at Mid-Ohio this week-end against the Corvettes. It managed to come 4th in Class after the two Vettes and the Saleen. The two Vettes came 1st and 2nd in class and 3rd and 4th overall.







Full results here.

Repeat after me in southern drawl: "Ain't she just the sweetest little thang!" Oh, the Pirelli lass is quite purty too!

Thanks for that link on the Lambo. Interesting information.

The Maserati MC12 was driven for the first time at a European public event during the Goodwood Festival of Speed this last week-end.

The latest news are not so good for the Maserati.

The ACO and FIA are willing to use the same rules in the near future which should be excellent for the teams.

The thing is that the Maserati won't fit those rules (too wide) and they are not happy. Since they intended to race at Le Mans from the start they could at least have paid attention to the GTS rules when they planned their supercar.

All the teams currently racing in the FIA-GT series are against the Maserati and Ratel (FIA-GT's boss) doesn't want a repeat of the 1998 season (with all the private teams leaving the series).

Regarding the Murcielago, Barbour's got their car but Dams are still waiting for it and they should have raced it at Donington last week ! The result is a very angry sponsor with many guests but no car to show.

And they shouldn't be at Spa since they don't want their car to make a first appearance on a 24h race ...
