  • Heavy rain causes qualifying to be cancelled
  • Second position on the grid for McNish and Capello
  • Championship leaders can claim the title early

The Audi “works” drivers Allan McNish (Scotland) and Dindo Capello (Italy) will start their Audi R10 TDI from the front row in the eighth race of the American Le Mans Series at Mosport (Canada). Due to heavy rain, the 20 minute qualifying on Saturday was cancelled. For Sunday’s starting grid, the organisers took into account each car’s best lap time achieved in any of the three free practice sessions on Friday and Saturday. The ALMS championship leaders Allan McNish and Dindo Capello will sit next to the Lola drivers and 2005 Mosport race winners, James Weaver and Butch Leitzinger, on the front row. Their Audi team-mates Frank Biela (Germany) and Emanuele Pirro (Italy) start the race on the 2.549 miles circuit, located about 60 miles east of Toronto, from sixth place.
