Today in Donington the weather was cloudy and cold : a very challenging return, after the summer break, for the 15 drivers engaged here in the 6° round of Superfund-Euro3000 Series , not only for the track technical difficulties , but also for the changeable circuit conditions. After the free practice, when he carried out the best second lap, Nicky Pastorelli obtained the 3° position in qualifying : a valuable result, considering the first row is taken by the JVA drivers, the British team which's plays at home.
" It's ok, I'll start from second row - the Dutchman of Draco J.Team declares - I wait tomorrow for the comments, but I can say that the car have a good setup and I think I can make my race. I aim the title, now I have to misure my-self with my direct opponent."
The Roman Fausto Ippoliti 'll start tomorrow from the seventh row, so, he'll plan out the comeback : " I made some mistakes, I'm here for the first time, all the same, I'm not satisfied with my time. I have to think over these mistakes and tomorrow I'll catch up."
Nadia Morini, Financial Director, claims to be optimist :"We knew that it would have been difficult snatching the pole against Lloyd e Reid, we took it for granted that they get the better of it, so, I'm quite pleased with the 3° time of Pastorelli. About the Ippoliti performance, I know it's difficult to be here for the first time, and I think the technical difficulties of Donington aren't to underrate. Now we wait the race."
