World Championship for wing cars
Kouvola, Finland 7-12 June 2005
On thursday and friday the G-27 class was raced with 27
Bill Skinner turned a 1,77 lap in the first round followed by
1,751 lap in the bye-round and were set to win this qualifying. But as
of you already know (if you read on OWH or IMCA) this incredibly fast
was topped by Jose Mario from Brazil who drove a 1,748 lap. That
rubber seem to work well.

was the most laps done in this segment. Compare that to other segments
