Not sure of the final result- as not yet on the website and I had only got to watch the first hour live (watching the rest now!)
James was our roaming reporter and thinks the ALPINA was in 6th entering the last lap but got a puncture...
Car 41 led for the first hour, losing the lead 1 lap before it pitted as it lost out when they were overtaking a backmarker.
1st pit stop was 2 min 18 secs
The ALPINA re-entered the race in 4th
and took 3rd place within the next couple of laps
With 1hour 10mins left they lost 3rd to the Audi R8
and pitted again
and re-entered the race in 10th (with Lunardi driving)
Linardi flying and was challenging for 3rd and 4th
With 45mins left got a puncture on front left tyre
He came off at Croft (not sure if puncture was cause or result)
Pitted and came back out again with only that 1 tyre changed.
Reentered back in 9th
with 35mins left retook 8th
with 30mins left retook 7th
with 29mins left retook 6th
with 14mins to go it started raining
with 12mins left Linardi overtook the race leader to unlap himself !
The 'team mate' Z4 went onto win.
