PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

Richard GORANSSON, West Coast Racing Winner of the S2000 FIA ETC Cup
"I didn't expect to have this result today especially considering how great Alex (Zanardi) had been all weekend. We took a few steps forward today and it worked well. I am extremely happy. In the second race, I was talking to the pits and they told me Zanardi was on his way up the positions so I didn't know if I had done enough to win the title. This event has been a success. It is fantastic to have so many countries competing and I hope I have made a lot of Swedes very happy and proud."

Jason PLATO, SEAT Sport UK 2nd in the S2000 FIA ETC Cup
"Race 1 was just one of those races. I was in the thick of it and it didn't work out. Things are really difficult in competitions of this level and every slight bit of time helps. We made a few changes and in Race 2 everything was right. I'm not disappointed that I didn't win the cup. This morning it looked bad for me but now I can say I won the last race of the 2005 season and I am pleased."

Alessandro ZANARDI, BMW Team Italy Spain 3rd in the S2000 FIA ETC Cup
"This is motorsport; sometimes you are lucky and sometimes you are not. I believe I had the fastest car all weekend but the 2nd race didn't go my way and it was one of those things. I had a problem braking which made it difficult for me and I think I lost it because of this. It is not so nice to be on the side of bad luck but I would like to congratulate Richard Goransson on his success."

Lorenzo FALESSI, Errepi Racing Winner of the SP FIA ETC Cup
"It has been a very tough season for me and I haven't participated in a lot of races. We worked hard to re-build the car through the night so I was in with a chance today. I am very happy with this title and I have to say that this was my goal since I entered the event."

Sergey KRYLOV, Sport-Garage 2nd in the SP FIA ETC Cup
"This is a good result for Russian motorsport and I am happy for everyone involved. It means so much to be here and I have met so many interesting people, it has been a brilliant weekend."

Alexander NIKOLAEV, Sport-Garage 3rd in the SP FIA ETC Cup
"I am very happy especially as this is my first time in a 2 litre engine car. This experience is a dream come true and I would like to give my thanks to everyone that has helped make it happen."
