  ALMS Mid-Ohio  

Practice and Qualifying


LEXINGTON, Ohio (June 29, 2002) Fighting persistent understeer, American Le Mans Series LMP-900 championship leaders ADT/Champion Audi qualified fourth for Sunday's 2hr 45min race at Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course.

Two practice sessions, the second interrupted by three black flags, were held on Saturday morning, with qualifying held at mid-afternoon. The weather has been sunny and hot, with race day likely to be even hotter. With rain and clouds during the first two days of race week followed by progressively warmer days, the changable conditions have contributed to difficulties in achieving optimum setup for the twisting 2.258-mile roadcourse.

Sunday's race gets underway at 2pm EST, and will be televised live on SPEED Channel.

1. Frank Biela, Emanuele Pirro; Audi R8, 1:14.169; 109.598mph

2. Jan Magnussen, David Brabham; Panoz LMP-1, 1:14.841; 108.614
