High ground challenge for Matteo Bobbi

17/04/2008 - It's the Mexican round for the Grand-Am 2008. The Mexico City's racing track is about to house this weekend the third round of the season, that announces to be particularly tough from a technical viewpoint. The circuit, named after Hermanos Rodriguez, is located at 2.500 meters above the sea level, a condition that will cause a power loss to all engines that are going to be particularly stressed throughout the race.

Matteo Bobbi worked during the past weeks with Cheever Racing Team's engineers to improve both the performances and the reliability of his Coyote-Pontiac, a brand new project that is paying the unavoidable fees of the youth.

Matteo Bobbi:

The development process of the car is going well, but we have a lot work to do.

We are committed on two aspects: performances and reliability, the latter being considered as a priority at the moment. Unfortunately we did not manage to conclude the first two races, but I am hopeful that the work done in the last weeks will allow us to get the chequered flag. Racing at 2.500 meters is a challenge not only for motors but for drivers too. The oxygen lack will be felt and it will make even more difficult to keep the full concentration for the whole stint".
