All of the four practice sessions today were held in various degrees of wet.

Two additional unofficial stints were available to the team to shakedown the new car that the team will be running in Portugal this weekend with another practice session tomorrow morning before qualifying tomorrow afternoon.

Sean McIntosh: "I haven't raced here but my 30 laps in an F3 car has helped a bit - but it was sunny - nothing like today. It helped considerably when we went out in the rain - at least I knew kind of which way the track went. I learned a bit about what corner speeds we'll need. You can't really get a good read on where everyone will be with these conditions. With the wets we were one of the quickest out there but on the drying track we put slicks on a lap or two early. Overall I think it'll be a good weekend and we need to keep learning. We got data on wet and damp conditions so we're making progress.

"I'm getting the hang of the one lap system for tomorrow's qualifying. When I went out on the new tyres I went quickly right away. I think it's something you get better with by practicing. We should have a good set up for either condition. We should be able to put on another good show for the folks back home. The word is spreading through Canada -- the real Motorsport fans are following and more people are noticing now that it's on the web."
