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
"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.

again be spearheading the MenX Ferrari 550 line-up at the Nurburgring,
having played a major role in the team's win at Silverstone.
