Burt Frisselle had a successful week at the Barber Dodge Pro Series test in Sebring, FL.
November 26 - November 27 and December 3 - December 5, 2002
Burt Frisselle, a 2002 Barber Dodge Pro Series Scholarship Run-Off invitee, spent this past week in Sebring, Florida at a Barber Dodge Pro Series test in the Dodge Reynard 98E. The Barber Dodge Pro Series is the entry level professional series in the CART development ladder and Frisselle's target for the 2003 season.
The test was an opportunity for Frisselle to continue his preparation for the run-off in which he hopes to win the top prize of a $100,000 scholarship for the 2003 Barber Dodge Pro Series. Over the course of the five days of testing, the young rookie from Hawaii was among the top two in times in every session as he worked to find the speed necessary to be competitive in the run-off.
Throughout the tests, Frisselle had the opportunity to try a variety of set- ups in an effort to determine what will work best for him. After turning a lap time of 1:07.46, Frisselle was very pleased with the progress he made and feels he will be very competitive in the run-off.
"This week went extremely well. I had the opportunity to concentrate 100% on my racing and car set-up. I was very pleased with my times, and I was really able to get a good feel for the car. I feel very confident as I look ahead to the upcoming run-off and I hope to capitalize on the opportunity that the Barber Dodge Scholarship and CART ladder system provide" said Frisselle.
