Lamborghini Murcielago - first ever win at FIA GT Championship
Lamborghini surprised the motorsport world with its first ever win at FIA GT Championship. The Murcielago that won the 2007 season-opener at Zhuhai was driven by Christophe Bouchut and Stefan Mucke. Making early pit-stops they were able to leap to the front of the field when the leaders had to pit during a late safety car.
But once ahead, the Lamborghini had the pace to edge away from the chasing Philipp Peter/Luke Hines PSI Corvette in the final 16 laps and secure the win.
The Mike Hezemans/Jean-Denis Deletraz Corvette had led the early laps before being overhauled first by the polesitting Vitaphone Maserati of Thomas Biagi and Michael Bartels, then the older sister Corvette driven by Bert Longin and Anthony Kumpen.
