THE MINARDI DUO LEADS THE LAST TEST DAY

The second F.3000 test day in Vallelunga ends with the Minardi duo leading the group. Once again the fastest driver was Davide Rigon, this time in front of Diego Nunes.

Behind them it was a great battle with three drivers split up by just one tenth: the Auto Sport Racing's Bulgarian Arabadzhiev, RC Motorsport's Italian Olivier Martini and Elk Motorsport's Swede Danielsson, slowed down by a punture with his last set of tyres.

Comparing to the morning session times, just Rigon (Minardi), Danielsson (ELK) and Dracone (ASR) couldn't improve their times, preferring to focus on the car balance for the race. All the drivers managed instead to be faster than the first day of testing.
