TUNE-IN TO MONZA

The Scuderia Ecosse GT Team heads off to Monza for the second round of the FIA GT championship this weekend, with a spring in their step following a highly successful two-day test last week at the demanding Vallelunga circuit. Valuable information was gathered from the test session which will now be deployed by the team at the high-speed Milan circuit.

Fabio Babini said “The test last week proved to be an important step forward with our traction-control system and the Pirelli tyres we used are now fully ready for Monza.”

Jamie Davies “It was a highly productive two days testing. We worked on traction control issues along with a tyre test with Pirelli. The entire running gave us some valuable feedback and some important progress was made and I am looking forward to Monza.”

Scuderia Ecosse team principal Stewart Roden said, ” It has been a very productive two days and we have worked hard on a selection of new Pirelli tyre compounds and constructions. With the new season now underway it is clear that TV coverage of the Championship has taken a massive leap forward for 2008. Highlights of all the weekend’s stunning racing can be viewed on Sky Sports, MotorsTV, Men and Motors, ITV4 and Channel 4. Along with live in car action via www.gt1live.tv it is a spectacle not to be missed. With this level of media coverage the growth and importance of the GT championship is on the increase, guaranteeing that new audiences will be reached. This will allow supporters and sponsors of the team throughout Europe to keep a close eye on our season as it progresses.”
