Conquest Racing's Jaime Camara Completes Rookie Orientation
- Enrique Bernoldi looking to complete ROP on Monday -

INDIANAPOLIS (May 4, 2008) - The Conquest Racing pair of Enrique Bernoldi and Jaime Camara took their first laps at Indianapolis Motor Speedway aboard the IndyCar Series Dallara today during rookie orientation.

Camara completed his rookie test in 47 laps with a best lap of 41.0631 seconds (219.175 mph). His teammate Bernoldi was a few laps shy, running out of time at the end, and will have to complete his rookie orientation on Monday. The Brazilian ended the day with a best lap of 41.4102 seconds (217.338 mph).

Jaime Camara (#34 Sangari Dallara/Honda/Firestone): "It was great taking my first laps around the Speedway in an Indycar, it is a lot quicker than an Indy Lights car that's for sure. I'm happy that everything went well today. We made progress and we passed the ROP. Before our last run, we made some adjustments to the car just to test some things and then it went really well. I am looking forward to the month. I think as the month continues we are going to make more and more progress everyday and hopefully we can do a good job in qualifying and qualify the first week."

Enrique Bernoldi (#36 Sangari Dallara/Honda/Firestone): "Turning my first laps here in the Dallara was nice. It's a great track. It resembles more what I am used to driving, but with really fast corners. The car was good, but we missed some time at the end to complete our rookie test but we will be able to go tomorrow to get that done and then we can continue working on the car in preparation for qualifying."
