SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium (AP) - Italian Mauro Baldi took the lead in the World Sports Prototype Championship Sunday after he won the Belgian stage with teammate Kenny Acheson of Ireland in a Sauber Mercedes.

France’s Jean-Louis Schlesser, who led the world standings coming into the race, was in position to take second place but his Sauber Mercedes ran out of fuel with less than a mile to go.

The Porsche team of France’s Bob Wollek and West German Frank Jelinski finished second while Britons Julian Bailey and Mark Blundel took third place in a Nissan.

Another Porsche, with Argentina’s Oscar Larrauri and Austrian Roland Ratzenberger, finished fourth in the 480-kilometer race.

Baldi, picking 20 points with the victory, has 110 points in the world standing, just three ahead of teammate Schlesser.

Mercedes had won the constructor’s title before Sunday’s race.

The driver’s title will be decided by the last race in the WSPC championship in Mexico Oct. 29.
