Vallelunga : Draco J. Team finishes the first day of common test

Tought the overcast weather, today the dry track of Vallelunga permitted to carry out the free practices of Superfund-Euro3000 common test . Today fourteen drivers were engaged on track during the two sessions (morning and afternoon).

The Draco drivers Nicky Pastorelli and Fausto Ippoliti signed respectively the third and the fourth best lap of the day. The team is satisfied with his work on the one-seaters and with the drivers results, who had at disposal one set of tyres for all the day, unlike other drivers who had in the afternoon new tyres to lower their times.

At the end of second session we meet the two Draco drivers and they make these comments on this first day in Vallelunga :

Fausto Ippoliti :" I'm pleased with my work, but this morning, with the new set of tyres, the red flag forces me to fall through a very good lap. Anyway, I made a fair 1'05.040, and I think tomorrow to get better, we'll see."

Nicky Pastorelli : " As always, I work very well today with engineers and mechanics. The car is almost perfect, I reproach my self for some driving mistakes, during the first session. Anyway, 1'04.858 is a good lap. Tomorrow I have to do my best, I'm hopeful."

At last, we had a chat with the Team Owner Adriano Morini, who declares :" I have to say that I expected these results. The guys are young, but they work hard. I'm satisfied with their times. I think these test results are a good premiss for the championship beginning. "
