A Little More From Sebring On Monday
We’re not on site yet, and with no official timing,
we’re still piecing together limited information.
To the times
we already know - 1 Lehto, 1:48.374, 2 Herbert, 1:48.547, 3 Kaffer,
1:48.96, 4 Field, 1:50.590, 5 Weaver, 1:50.747 – we can add
a 1:51.8 for Joao Barbosa in the Rollcentre Dallara.
This was the
first day for the Rollcentre team, and on “65 lap rubber,
with the car still not tuned in,” (says Martin Short) it was
a very good start for this team.
dicking around trying to learn the circuit and come to terms with
being flung around in a very expensive amusement ride,” adds
have any times in GT, but the TVRs were having their first track
outing in the new, wider, longer form – and they’re
hot inside. Early days for this team.
All is well
at ACEMCO, with no significant problems, the team not making any
low fuel / soft tyre runs so far, and so pleased with progress that
they won’t run on Tuesday. The Corvettes aren’t giving
away their true pace over a complete lap: that will come in qualifying.
Perhaps no one in GTS will touch them…
No clues yet
then as to GT form at all: we’ll try and find out by the end
of Tuesday’s track time.
At least these
two seem to be enjoying each other's company...
