THE EUROSERIES 3000 BY PARTYPOKER RACING IS AMONG THE FASTEST FEEDER SERIES IN THE WORLD

The Euroseries 3000 by PartyPoker Racing is among the fastest feeder series in the world. This, beyond any doubt, is the result of the performance analysis that can be made after the first four rounds of the championship.

Already in the first event, in Portimao, the new Lola B05/52 amazed everyone. With new mechanichs, evolved aerodynamics and a new 550 bhp engine, the car allowed Marco Bonanomi to clinch pole position in 1'31"823, a laptime nearly 2" faster than the one recorded on the same track by the World Series by Renault. On the Algarve track the fastest Renault car managed a 1'33"462, while driven by the talented Jaime Alguersuari.

The new car was very fast also in Zolder. Comparing its times with the ones recorded by the Superleague Formula car, the Euroseries 3000 Lola was exactly as fast: 1'19"200 vs 1'19"123 in qualifying and 1'19"625 vs 1'19"491 for the race fastest lap. Despite the Superleague car being so powerful, with a 750 bhp V12 in it, the better aero and mechanic balance of the Lola B05/52 made it capable of the same performances.

On the last weekend in Valencia, the Euroseries 3000 by PartyPoker Racing had the occasion to face with the Formula 2 performances, as the Fia feeder series raced there on the 29th of May. Despite racing in hotter conditions and on a track that doesn't allow the driver to unleash all the power coming from the Zytek engine, the Lola B05/52 car was nearly 5" fastest in qualifying (1'23"000 vs 1'27"488) and 3"5 faster (1'24"868 vs 1'28"322) during the race.

Valencia was also the occasion to compare the new car performances with the ones of the old B02/50: the B05/52 was more than 2" faster, showing again how good was the choice made by Enzo Coloni.
