Zaugg, Palmer & Orido represent Europe, North America & Asia
As a precursor to tomorrow's two races, a forty minute qualifying session took place today in wet track conditions. Adrian Zaugg and Federico de Nora set an early provisional pole on the Campagnano Di Roma circuit, and held P1 to the flag. The North American series was strongly represented by the young hotshoe, Andrew Palmer, who qualified in fifth. The remarkable story of this 19 year old, who had never raced a car until October looks set to continue following a mighty impressive win at Virginia International Raceway this year. Tight on Palmer's heels however was the Lamborghini Jakarta entry of Indonesian racer Johnson Yaptonnaga and his Japanese team-mate, Manabu Orido, who closed out the 40 minute session in sixth overall and in so doing, was the quickest of the Asian competitors.
Tomorrow's first race commences at 0930hrs CET and is streamed live with full English language commentary at http://squadracorse.lamborghini.com/en/live
