24 Hour of Spa: a Maserati one-two!
The Bertolini/Bartels/Van de Poele/Sarrazin crew cruised to victory in the 24 Hour of Spa to cross the line ahead of their team mates Ramos/Negraõ/Pier Guidi/Lemeret. The two MC12s fielded by the German outfit took command just as the six hour mark came up, the first of the three stages where championship points are awarded. Before that, the race had not been an easy one but the Maserati pace left the sensation that a night time attack was on the cards. The light but troublesome rain would have disrupted these plans as the weather prevented the drivers from mounting wets but made the cars hard to control on slicks.
