One point worth a victory
Silverstone (UK), May 3rd 2009 - "This point is worth a victory". This is Thomas Biagi first remark while he was stepping down smiling from his FORD GT40 at the end of the first lap of this FIA GT Championship. Happy for his eight place during the race and for hitting the first step of the podium of the so called "future car" vehicles, already compliant with next 2010 Regulation.
"I'm very much satisfied of the result got today, considering that our Ford GT40 is penalized by next regulation compliance compared to current GT1 cars and I'm also satisfied because this is the very first time I drive it in Silverstone!
I'm very pleased of the congratulations I got from Matech Concept Racing Team for the job done during this weekend. Our team has strong capabilities that need to be expressed. I will try to use all my experience in order to strenghten the reason why the Team wanted me.
Sincerely, I was not expecting to step on the podium and the fact of arriving before official Nissan makes us proud. At the moment we are well balanced in slow bends and it makes me optimistic for a further short step forward for Adria, a racetrack I feel confortable with. Don't miss the next date on May 16th for the second round of FIA GT...".
