» SPA - LA CORVETTE DI MAASSEN E MENTEN IN POLE NELLA QUALIFYING RACE

The fastest car in yesterday's Pre Qualifying proved to be the fastest car when it mattered.  Xavier Maassen and Jos Menten steered the Mad-Croc Racing Corvette Z06 to pole position in qualifying for Round 5 of the 2010 FIA GT1 World Championship.  Maassen easily qualified in Q1, finishing in 2nd place to hand over to Menten in Q2, who also set the 2nd fastest session time to progress to the final 8.  Maassen then set a time of 2m17.605 to claim the first pole position for himself, Jos Menten and Mad-Croc Racing.  The All-Inkl.com Münnich Motorsport Lamborghini Murcielago 670 R-SV of Nicky Pastorelli and Dominik Schwäger will line up alongside the leading Corvette in this afternoon’s Qualifying Race, with the Reiter Lamborghini of Ricardo and Frank Kechele heading up row 2 in 3rd place.

The Qualifying Race for Roudn 5 of the FIA GT1 World Championship will take place at 15:00 (local).

1st  Xavier Maassen - Nr11 Mad-Croc Racing Corvette Z06: “I’m really delighted. It’s been a difficult season for us; in 5 rounds I’ve had 4 different team mates, which is a difficult situation to be in every time. We’re trying to make the best out of it and we’ve been knocking on the door for some time and we’ve been competitive in every race, and we were really doing a good job, but we just didn’t get the result we wanted. We had a chance at the podium at nearly every race, but we never seem to get it. Already it went better in Paul Ricard, but Mike was touched by Grosjean who pushed him off and he had to start from P20 and work his way back to the front. I’m really delighted, it’s like a relief to get such a good result and pole position, especially here, because the track is brilliant. As a home track, if you have a good car, Spa is so incredibly nice. There wasn’t any preparation on the dry setup, but the team has a lot of knowledge of this track and everyone knows what Spa is like. We simply had a good car, the setup we had already was the base setup we wanted to start with, we didn’t change a lot and it was simply good. The team did and awesome job because the car is simply perfect. When you have such a good car, it’s so nice to go around the track and through Eau Rouge; it’s really cool.”

1st Jos Menten - Nr11 Mad-Croc Racing Corvette Z06:  “It’s nice to be back again, and nice to see that the other car I drove is also so good. It was a late call, and to go with someone who lives 30 km from me is also nice, we can speak the same dialect. To be on pole and to come here is always nice. Normally I don’t get a hotel here because I live an hour from the track, but yesterday it finished at 1am, and this morning, back at 7, so it was a bit tiring. But being on pole, I don’t feel so tired anymore.”

2nd Nicky Pastorelli - Nr 38 All-Inkl Münnich Motorsport Lamborghini Murcielago 670 R-SV:  “We’re really happy. We were already quite quick in the previous races but something went wrong everytime. Hopefully things will go well in the race, we will see this afternoon and tomorrow. But for now, the qualifying was good, especially since we came here with 0 km with this track or this car, so we didn’t really know what to expect with qualifying, especially after yesterday with the rain and everything. I also have to thank the team, as they made a couple of changes during the qualifying and in between the sessions, so the car was really good to drive in Q3 and we’ll see how things go this afternoon.”

2nd Dominik Schwager - Nr 38 All-Inkl Münnich Motorsport Lamborghini Murcielago 670 RSV : “I’m really happy at where we are now. We arrived in Abu Dhabi, the mechanics had just put the car together. Every race we did, the car gets better, the setup gets better, there is still a lot of room to improve. It’s very nice to be back here, because the last time was with F3000 in 1998, so quite a while ago. It’s such a nice track to be at. It’s always nice when the car is good, it makes life much easier. We’ll see how the race goes this afternoon. I don’t expect any crazy things; so far there has been tough battling. For us it’s really important, this time we don’t have such a big problem with the tyres, because we have 4 news sets for today, and I hope we get a good result today.”

3rd Ricardo Zonta - Nr 25 Reiter Lamborghini Murcielago 670 R-SV:  “In Paul Ricard, we did a good job. We were always running between 6-1st all weekend, but qualifying was not so good there. We qualified quite near the back, and the race was very exciting for me. The car is improving a lot, this weekend was quite difficult for me as I didn’t do many laps in the dry, especially yesterday when the track was a bit dry, I lost the laps. Jumped straight into qualifying and didn’t know much about the car here, but I’m very happy, especially to drive with Frank. He’s quick here and helping a lot to improve the car.”

3rd Frank Kechele - Nr 25 Reiter Lamborghini Murcielago 670 R-SV : “It’s great. I didn’t expect it to be that good to be honest, as I didn’t have any dry laps and have never driven in a GT1 here or similar. It wasn’t that easy, but to nail Eau Rouge and Blanchimont in 2 laps is not that easy, but obviously it worked and Ricardo did an awesome job and we’re very happy, and there’s still something to come for the race.”
