Adelaide, December 30th, 2000
Crocodile hunters get ready: In tomorrow’s season final of the American Le
Mans Series at Adelaide the Audi R8 will again start from pole position. During
the 30 minutes of qualifying on the Adelaide street circuit, Rinaldo Capello who
teams up with Brad Jones and Allan McNish set the fastest time in his Audi
R8 sporting a crocodile design. Only 1.7 tenths of a second behind the no. 77
car Emanuele Pirro, sharing the cockpit with Frank Biela, put his Audi R8 on
the second position on the grid.
The race starts on Sunday at 16:15 hours and ends after 5:45 hours or 1000
kilometres, whichever comes first. Allan McNish (#77) and Frank Biela (#78)
are to start the race in the two Audi R8s.
