Jamie Davies – A 550 Again
2004 prototype champion (with Johnny Herbert) Jamie Davies gets his first LMES run of the season this weekend at the Nurburging, partnering Matteo Cressoni and Miguel Ramos, in the #52 BMS Scuderia Italia Ferrari 550.

Fabrizio Gollin – winner in this car at Spa – is staying in the US ahead of a Grand Am commitment at Phoenix, but the GTS winner at Le Mans in 2003 is the perfect man to take his place.

"It's 2003 since I last drove the Ferrari 550 and I'm looking forward to it as I know the car well and had some good races in it,” says the west countryman. “It will feel a bit different on the Pirelli tyres, but I've got experience of them from Spa this year and I was impressed, they feel very good."

He set fastest lap in the Spa 24 Hours, in the #10 Vitaphone Maserati.

This is the podium scene at Le Mans in 2003 - from the left, George Howard-Chappell, Jamie Davies, Sam Li, Tomas Enge and Peter Kox. The Dutchman will again be spearheading the MenX Ferrari 550 line-up at the Nurburgring, having played a major role in the team's win at Silverstone.
