HITECH CONCLUDES TEST PROGRAMME

British Formula 3 Champions Hitech Racing has concluded its first post-season test programme with impressive performances at Oulton Park and Silverstone. The team, and its regular driver Walter Grubmuller, were joined at the Cheshire track on Wednesday and on Monday in Northamptonshire by Mexican sensation Rodolfo Gonzalez and Swede Sebastian Hohenthal as it carried out evaluations prior to next season.

Both days the experienced Gonzalez topped the times, with Grubmuller and Hohenthal consistently sharing the second place slot. Gonzalez, using the team's third car, settled in quickly and was immediately on the pace at Silverstone, while Hohenthal, driving the championship winning car of Marko Asmer, lost track time on Monday with a differential problem.

On Wednesday, at Oulton, Austrian Grubmuller who will spearhead the team's assault on next year's Lloyds TSB Insurance British Formula 3 International Series, showed impressive pace winding up just shy of the time posted by Gonzalez. The 18 year-old rookie has now set off to Australia to compete in the final round of the Australian F3 Championship at Oran Park, near Sydney on November 10th/11th prior to heading out to Macau the following week.

For team Principal David Hayle, the performance of the two newcomers offered the chance of look at alternative drivers ahead of the 2008 season, with a decision on who will partner Grubmuller not expected to be announced until after the Macau Grand Prix which takes place on November 18th.

Following the Macau race, the team will continue its pre-Christmas test during December when it flies off to Spain for six days.
