The Lister Storm was unveiled exactly ten years ago, on October 19th 1993, and started its racing career two years later. Eight years on and the unique looking British car is still going strong as evidenced at Monza on Sunday by Jamie Campbell-Walter and Nathan Kinch.

While the new for 2003 Lister Storm LMP900 prototype sat silently in the team's garage at Monza this weekend, Campbell-Walter and Kinch brought the nr 14 Storm home in a strong third place to close the season out in style and give the old girl a birthday to remember.

While the team eagerly awaits next year's engine upgrades, the nr 14car made steady progress up the field, and despite stalling while avoiding two spinning cars which had blocked the track, regained third place when the Championship winning nr 9 Thomas Biagi/Matteo Bobbi Ferrari 575 M Maranello made a late splash and dash.

"It was close for everyone," said Campbell-Walter. "And I think that [race winners] Fabrizio [Gollin and Luca Cappellari] and I were the only two that did the race on two stops.

"It was a pretty good result, and as it is the tenth anniversary of the Lister Storm today, so it's nice to have a podium and end the season this way," he concluded.
