Donington Park welcomed the Euro 3000 Series, today, for the two official testing sessions that precede the weekend race. Team Draco made another strong performance with Brazilian Augusto Farfus lying in top position in the morning session and in provisional pole position in the afternoon session. German Sven Heidfeld has come back at the wheel of his Lola #7, after the bad accident he had at the last race in Spa-Francorchamps, on a circuit that is absolutely new for his as this is his first time here, in Donington. Now Sven is fine and Team Draco made an excellent work and let him possible to race here with a new car.
Sven Heidfeld (car #7) -- "I'm satisfied because I do not feel any pains at my foot and leg. I made a strong therapyin Germany and now I'm ok. I just had a small inconvenience during the first 10 minutes accelerator but now is ok. I want to thanks my team because all the guys made a wonderful job and they give me a new car to race here. Today I took a little bit of time to check that everything was ok and that I was feeling well in my "new" car. Tomorrow I'll push and try to qualify in a good position on the grid"".
Augusto Farfus Junior (car #8) -- "He have done a good job on the car today, but we need to improve more. In Donington track is sometimes difficult to have a fast lap because its conditions can change a lot because of the big quantity of petrol left by the numerous plans that pass above the track. We are working hard because we really would like to win here".
