Krumm and Luhr take 2011 FIA GT1 World Championship

Britain's JRM drivers Michael Krumm and Lucas Luhr were crowned FIA GT1 world champions this weekend when they raced to victory for Nissan and wrapped up the titles in the first of the two hour-long races at the Potrero de los Funes circuit in Argentina.

The pair had already amassed enough points on Saturday to seal the title, and a massive start line crash that saw Luhr's Nissan GT-R hit the wall failed to dent his lead. After a slow start from the Corvette in pole, the cars bunched up at the back and a number of them touched and caused some cars to spin out and block the track.
