November 8-10 Final round at Cataluyna, Spain.
The final round has been confirmed as being at the GP circuit
of Cataluyna near Barcelona. The circuit is tight, technical with fast
corners and has a mile long pit straight. The best place to overtake is
to outbrake at La Caixa but it can be rather bumpy.
October 19-20 Round 6 Estoril, Portugal
Originally Estoril was to be a three hour endurance but
now it is two 50 minute races. The circuit is about 20 minutes from Lisbon
and is quite a complicated with mostly right hand corners. Strong sea
winds can play an important part.
Nick will be having a new partner in the Autovitesse car
Practice session 1 and 2 passed without incident round the 4,183km circuit. In the first qualifying session the car was slower giving them 7th on the grid but in the second session the team slashed their time by 3 seconds to give themselves a lap time only 1.02 seconds off pole and a very well deserved 4th.
Unluckily problems prevented Nick from racing but he has confirmed he will be racing in the last round in Spain.
September 21-22 Pergusa-Enna, Sicily
Round 5 sees the Lamborghinis traveling to the Isles of Sicily off Italy. The road circuit is near Enna in the centre of the island near a lake. It is 4.95 km long in a rough circle with the start now moved to one of the 4 straights.
Unfortunately Nick was unable to race this weekend due to unforeseen circumstances but he will be back out on track at Estoril.
