Tecate/Telmex Grand Prix of Monterrey
Saturday, March 9, 2002

Recap: Rain put a damper on the final qualifying session for Sunday's Tecate/Telmex Grand Prix of Monterrey. PWR Championship Racing drivers Oriol Servia and Scott Dixon did not take to the track and will stick with their first round qualifying times. Servia will start 11th on the grid, while teammate Scott Dixon will start in 14th position. It's very disappointing for both drivers who finished in the top five in this morning's practice session. Servia logged a 1:16:646 finishing third overall and Dixon posted a quick time of 1:16:754 and finished in fourth position.

Oriol Servia - #17 PWR Toyota-Lola Bridgestone
Position: 11th Time: 1:19:878s Laps: 12 Speed: 94.825mph

"It's a shame because after this morning we thought we would have a very good qualifying session," said Servia. "We were third fastest this morning and the car was very nice to drive and I was feeling very confident going into qualifying. We have a very good racecar and I think we will have a good race tomorrow. It's a long race and the track will be very slippery. There will probably be a lot of yellow flags, so we'll have to make sure not to make any mistakes and we should be fine and will do the best with what we have."

Scott Dixon - #7 PWR Toyota-Lola Bridgestone
Position: 14th Time: 1:20:102s Laps: 15 Speed: 94.559mph

"It's very disappointing considering the day started out really good," said Dixon. "We did a lot of fine-tuning and the car was much better this morning. We would have been much better off had the track been dry - definitely in the top five. Obviously we have no control over the weather and starting 14th is not where we want to be, but we have a good car and I'm confident we'll come up with a good race strategy. It's a long race and anything can happen."
