After seven races last year his average was eighth and his average at this time in 2002 was 13th.
Welcome Gevril: Herdez Competition welcomed a new associate sponsor to the team last week, Gevril, a leader in fine watches. The Gevril logo will adorn both the Herdez Competition entries the remainder of the 2004 season.
Mario on Vancouver: "Vancouver should be a good race weekend for us. I had a very fast racecar in Toronto, unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity to show it in the race, but we will definitely apply everything we learned from Toronto to our set-up in Vancouver. We have been continually developing our street circuit car all year and I think we have made big improvements. As for the city, Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities we race in. I arrived a couple of days early just to enjoy the city, it has everything to offer and is one of my favorites for sure."
