FIA GT1 – Lamborghini’s Domination Complete In Navarra

July 3, 2011


The bull well and truly roared in Navarra this afternoon when the Munnich Motorsport Lamborghinis underlined their total domination of the sixth round with a one-two finish in the Championship Race.

Dominik Schwager and Nicky Pastorelli, starting from the fourth row of the grid due to an engine change penalty carried over from Silverstone, worked their way through the field in the No.37 car to claim victory.

The sister car of Marc Basseng and Markus Winkelock, starting from pole, had controlled the race from the start but was forced to take a drive-through penalty with 15 minutes remaining. The No.37 car which was running second at the time swept into the lead as the No.38 rejoined and tucked in behind.

Third place went to the Sumo Power Nissan GT-R No.21 of Jamie Campbell Walter and David Brabham. The pair had held second place but a problem at the pit stop dropped them down a place.

It was a clean sweep for the Lamborghinis. They were fastest in Free Practice and Pre-Qualifying, secured a front row lockout in Qualifying and were first and second in the Qualifying Race on Saturday. They also set fastest laps in both races.

The German team were elevated to the top of the teams’ standings as a result of their weekend’s work. Basseng and Winkelhock consolidated their lead of the drivers’ table.
