Nelson Panciatici photo Eric RegoubyThe competitors of the European Le Mans Series will race in the second challenge of the season in Italy, on the Autodromo Enzo & Dino Ferrari in Imola, where the Alpine A450 is among the favourites. With a best time in the official ELMS tests on the Castellet circuit, the Alpine A450 finished just short of a podium in the first race at Silverstone because dramatic weather forced the stewards to stop the race before the end for safety reasons.

Britain’s Allan McNish recorded fourth place today (SUN) in his first race since his spectacular Le Mans 24 Hour race accident.

McNish, who stepped uninjured from his written-off Audi R18 TDI at Le Mans three weeks ago, and co-driver Tom Kristensen (Denmark) almost snatched a top-three podium finish in the closing moments of the six hour sportscar endurance race at the Imola track near Bologna in Italy.

The McNish/Kristensen Audi started the race from fourth place on the 48-car grid and remained fourth before he handed the turbo diesel R18 TDI to co-driver Kristensen after 90mins.
