Bertolini-Bartels increase their championship lead

Bertolini / Bartels increase their overall lead

At Oschersleben in the fourth round of the 2008 FIA GT, Bertolini / Bartels earned more points that see them hold onto their championship lead. Vitaphone Racing Team, which fields two MC12s in this series, continues to head the Team standings. Vitaphone’s other crew of Miguel Ramos and Alexander Negraõ came fourth courtesy of a good comeback and astute strategy. Aucott / Ferté  finished an excellent ninth in the JMB Racing MC12.

The next race, the 24 Hours of Spa, should suit the MC12 as it beats the other cars in terms of its reliability.
