With the first free practice session on the Italian Vallelunga track today started the new Euroseries 3000. Once again the weather was good for the teams continuing their schedule and looking forward to the qualifying and the two races. At the end of the 30 minutes the best time is for a driver carrying a historical surname such as Nicolas Prost (Cerveza Sol - ELK Motorsport), son of the 4-times World Champion Alain Prost, who clocked the best time of the day in 1'26''091. He was just a tenth ahead of the two GP Racing drivers: the Spanish Roldan Rodriguez (1'26''118) and the Italian Fabio Onidi (1'26''188).

Good performance also for the second driver of the Cerveza Sol - ELK Motorsport team, Luiz Razia, who brought his Lola B02/50 to the fourth place, just 262 thousands of a second off the pace, followed by the BMW Sauber F1 test driver Marko Asmer (1'26''642) at his second day with the TP Formula team.

The Spanish team Emilio De Villota and his young driver Matteo Cozzari keep on their improvement with the powerful Lola B02/50 Zytek. Today five drivers ended split by less than six tenth, which shows once again the great technical level reached by Euroseries 3000. Tomorrow morning the second session of free practice and the qualifying for the first 2008 starting grid will take place.
