ART and Suriya hoping to bounce back

Asia Racing Team (ART Motorsports) will be leaving this weekend for Kuala Lumpur for round two of the Formula BMW Pacific Series. After a tough season start, Suriya Bala wants to bounce back and savor some success at the Malaysian track.

In the first event of the season the 17 years old driver from Singapore qualified in eighteenths place but didn't manage to cross the in line in Race 1. Determined to recover from his first disappointing race, Suriya had an eventful Race 2 in the middle of the pack to cross to finish in sixteenth place.

Speaking ahead of the second weekend of the season, Suriya Bala said "After realizing my mistakes in the first two races of the series I'm really looking forward to get back in the car to show what I can do. I have been training really hard on my physical fitness and now I feel even more fitter! I will make sure I will use the maximum of what I have got to make my weekend great for me and the team."

Team Manager Philippe Descombes, added: "Everyone is highly motivated after the break and the main thing, as always, is that we focus on producing a strong, consistent weekend. We will work hard to score the first points of the season. I am sure Suriya has learnt from his mistakes and he knows what it takes to build up the weekend."

Official Free Practice for the Formula BMW Series will be held at Sepang on Friday May 14th, and the qualifying session will be run on the morning of Saturday, May 15th. The first two 10-lap races will happen later on Saturday, and the further two rounds will be held on Sunday May 16th.
