2007 » FIA GT - Zhuhai - Victory for Lamborghini Murciélago - AF Corse inherit GT2 win


Christophe Bouchut and Stefan Mücke started the season in the best possible way, giving Racing and the Lamborghini Murciélago their first FIA GT win.  With the new two-hour format, where strategy is incredibly important, the timing of the pit stops along with a safety-car period saw the nr 7 car take the lead.  At the re-start, a storming Bouchut kept the lead ahead of Philipp Peter, sharing the nr 19 PSI Experience Corvette C6 with FIA GT newcomer Luke Hines, and the PK Carsport Corvette C5 of Bert Longin and Anthony Kumpen.  With fastest laps being set one after the other, a frantic finish finally saw Lamborghini claim its first win.

The GT2 race was equally exciting, with a chaotic start seeing the leading cars fall back, catching up later. First across the line was the BMS Scuderia Italia Porsche 997 GT3 RSR; however, the car later failed scrutineering due to the ground clearance.  Itss exclusion meant that AF Corse Motorola Ferrari cars took first and second, giving Dirk Müller and Toni Vilander their first victory. Stéphane Ortelli and Gianmaria Bruni, whose car had been delayed due to a puncture, were second, with Scuderia Ecosse's Mullen and Enge third.
