The Vitaphone Racing Team MC12 driven by Biagi/Bartels took sixth and Ramos/Montanari seventh in the FIA GT championship race at Zhuhai.
The event was won by Bouchut/Mucke (Lamborghini Murcielago). An exciting race promised much more for the Modenese cars given their performances. Bartels/Biagi were seriously hampered by the entry of the safety car near the end of the race and the Playteam Sarafree MC12’s race ended prematurely when a miscalculation on refuelling interrupted Alessandro Pier Guidi and Andrea Bertolini when in full flow.
