San Luis - argentina

Second row for the MC12 at San Luis

An excellent qualifying performance saw Andrea Bertolini earn a place on row two with the fourth best time.

His drive was all the more special considering he had 85kg of ballast on board and was on a dusty, low-grip surface.The Vitaphone Racing Team driver worked on the MC12's race set up, ahead of an event where he, along with partner Michael Bartels, will have to defend an 8 point lead over Hezemans / Gollin to become champions for the second time. Alexander Negraõ / Miguel Ramos, did even better as they clocked the third fastest time, just 765 thousandths off poleman Marcel Fässler. The race will get underway tomorrow at 17.15 Italian time.
