Heylen Finishes Provisional Qualifying 12th at the San Jose Grand Prix at Redback Raceway

Jan Heylen #34 Champ Car Grand Prix of Belgium / Cosworth / DP01 / Bridgestone

"I really think we did the best that we could this afternoon," said Heylen. "Everything went smoothly; I just don't think that there was much more in the car. We're going to have to go back tonight and figure out how to make the car better for tomorrow. We're not far off so I think that if we can go in the right direction we can improve a couple of spots at the final qualifying session. Twelfth just isn't good enough for us so we'll be eager to advance tomorrow."

Eric Bachelart Quote

"Twelfth position isn't really where we would like to be right now," said Eric Bachelart, Conquest Racing team owner. "We will be sitting down this afternoon to try to figure out how we can improve our lap times during tomorrow's final qualifying. It is a very close field but I am confident we will move up some spots tomorrow."
