Third row for Ramos-Negraõ
The crew was competing in the eighth round of the FIA-GT at Nogaro. Negraõ was making his first appearance at the old European track, one that is narrow and has little in the way of grip. Still, he qualified with the fifth best time, only seven tenths from Swiss driver Fässler in pole. The championship leaders will be on row five: Andrea Bertolini, with 85 kg of ballast in the car, was delayed two laps from the end by another competitor.
