Round 2 - France - Magny Cours


Maserati triumphed at Magny Cours with the MC12 monopolising the top three podium positions.
This expected and well deserved result is a reward for all the hard work carried out by the teams and drivers. The JMB Racing car driven by Andrea Bertolini and Karl Wendlinger took the chequered flag. It was followed home by the Vitaphone Racing Team GT crew of Michael Bartels and Timo Scheider.

Behind them came their team mates Fabio Babini and Thomas Biagi. The other MC12 with Philippe Peter/Chris Buncombe/Roman Rusinov on board for JMB Racing crossed the line in seventh. The Magny Cours win is also an Italian success with three cars and three drivers making the podium. Maserati now enjoys a clear lead in the Constructors’ Cup. The team classification sees the Vitaphone Racing Team up front with the Bartels/Scheider crew heading the drivers’ table. From his spot on the front row of the grid, Andrea Bertolini held the lead for sixteen laps.
