Trident Racing completed a 2 days test at the Paul Ricard circuit.

Trident Racing ended yesterday the two-days Paul Ricard test. The first collective test of the GP2 series season, was the first time for drivers and team to try out the Dallara with the 2007 new aero-kit. It was a very good practice, the team run all the programme planned, using two different solution of the Paul Ricard circuit. The long Mistral straight, allowed the team to test some aero-mapping solution, and in the second day focusing the job on one-lap peace. Kohei Hirate and Pastor Maldonado did a very good job, a solid start to the long 2007 season.

Alessandro Alunni Bravi - Team Principal

"After working for much of the winter in the factory, we had in Paul Ricard test the first opportunity of 2007 season to check on the track all the solutions we planned at home. We suffered a little gear-box problems on both cars, but Kohei and Pastor completed the job in a trouble-free test. We are very happy about the feeling that Kohei found with the car, he is improving so much. Pastor confirmed his natural talent, we know him very well, and he was not very lucky because a little tyre-failure did not consent him to use the last test of tyres. Trident Racing is also happy to confirm that BAYER will support out team`s first full GP2 Series season. We`re delighted to start this very important relationship, it`s going to be a very exciting season for us, and i`m really looking forward to giving to BAYER friends the best results".
