We are very happy about the drivers performance: Baumgartner was very constant and quick and Liuzzi, without a gearbox problem, could be on the top position. Liuzzi demonstrated to feel very well the car and he enjoyed a lot to drive the Lola B2/50-Zytek. We are working hard to prepare the Championship and to be ready for the first race. The Misano testing, despite the F.I.A. F.3000 International Championship will not race on this track, is very good to test the car in medium downforce conditions."
