HERDEZ/PAYTON-COYNE RACING PRESS RELEASE No. 148 MICHEL JOURDAIN JR., CAR #19 FRIDAY, AUGUST 20, 1999 FORD-COSWORTH/LOLA/FIRESTONE ROUND 15, CHICAGO
JOURDAIN JR. STILL WITH CHASSIS PROBLEMS
Mexican driver Michel Jourdain again has problems with the balance of his chassis. His best time was 23.802 seconds at 155.634 Mph.
Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #19 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "The car is loose in all the turns and develops some push in the middle of them. Exiting the turns it is really bad, it's difficult to drive it under these conditions."
Antonio Marron, Motorsports Director of the Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "We couldn't find the right balance for the car. Hopefully, tomorrow we will. The chassis has a lot of potential. A Lola was fastest today."
