Wet weather in the morning - dry in the afternoon At the end of the day the debut for Trident Racing is positive. The program consisted in checking that everything was alright and not in setting a fast lap. Despite the fact that it has been just something a bit more than a shake down, both drivers achieved good times. A special acknowledgement must be credited to all the technical personnel for their hard work in successfully putting together the cars.

GIMMI BRUNI # 26
24 laps - best lap 1.14.410

"The car with 2006 spec is very nice to drive, because it allows to brake late and be aggressive while cornering, exactly as I like. The slick tyres guarantee a lot of grip and make the car turn very well. I'm satisfied even of my best lap because it came without pushing, which means I get a lot of potential at my disposal. Tomorrow I hope everything will be alright because I have three sets of new tyres to exploit looking for the fast lap. In the end I believe this first day at the wheel of a Trident Racing car has been positive".

ANDREAS ZUBER #27
45 laps - best lap 1.15.186

"What an emotion! Even if I couldn't go for long runs, because my program consisted in a sequence of three four lap runs to set up many parameters, I understood that the potential is very good. The feedback with my staff has been very efficient and sensible. Tomorrow I should have the chance to drive for longer runs exploiting the slick tyres that I definitely like. At the beginning of the day I felt a special emotion, quite as when you get out with a new girlfriend for the first date, and now that the day is over I'm looking forward to meet her again tomorrow".
