iSport duo in the top ten in Barcelona....

The GP2 Series kicked off the 2010 season in Barcelona today at the Circuit de Catalunya. Davide Valsecchi was the first of the iSport cars to set a flying lap to put him a solid seventh, with his team mate Oliver Turvey following suit and signing the fifth fastest time. With track conditions deteriorating and a late yellow flag for the spun car of pole sitter Jules Bianchi, none of the front runners were able to improve their times leaving Oliver Turvey a solid fifth on his GP2 Series debut and a disappointed Davide Valsecchi P10.

Oliver Turvey
"I was fifth which I am quite happy with. The car felt good and we were competitive so we should be in a good position to challenge for a podium tomorrow. The track lost some time as the session went on so I set my fastest time on the first run. We should have a good car for the race so if I can get a good start and stay out of trouble on the first lap we could get some good points and a podium".

Davide Valsecchi
"Not a great day for us. I was not fast enough to fight for the top. It's a shame because I really wanted to be quick enough to be there to fight tomorrow for something important, but I was not fast enough to stay at the top, I was always, eight, ninth, tenth. Anyway, I hope for a good race tomorrow but we cannot fight for the victory or the podium, we have to fight for something less than that and try and get some good points."
