11 June 1999

EFDA Euroseries - Rounds 7 & 8 Monza, Italy (located in northern Italy about 15 minutes from Milan)

Weather: It had been raining in the morning, and now it is warm but humid.

Track: The track is about 3.8 miles long with 1.5

minute laps (average 150-155 mph). It is a difficult track, especially only having 2 practices of 20 minutes and never having been at the track before. It is very easy to overdrive the track - that is with the long straights going into the chicanes, it could cause you to go too deep into the chicane and lose it.

Practice went good. The team is still working on a few small things for Paul's "new" car. But that didn't stop Paul from coming up with the quickest time of the day - along with Darren Malkin. As you can see, the top 5 are real close, actually the top 10 are close. Should be a difficult qualifying and race!

1.53.1    Paul Edwards
1.53.1    Darren Malkin
1.53.6    Carlos Domingos
1.53.7    Christian McKenna
1.54.0    Tomas Scheckter
1.54.5    Jacky Van der Ende
1.55.1    Frabricio Masullo (Paul's Teammate)

ALL fingers crossed for the rest of the weekend please!
