Dan Wheldon : Wheldon concludes successful Phoenix test

Dan Wheldon, who won the 2003 Bombardier Rookie of the Year title with Andretti Green Racing, has concluded two days of testing at Phoenix International Raceway before flying home to England to be present at the Autosport Awards in London tonight where he is on the short-list for two awards.

"Thursday was a good day," Wheldon said. "We continued working on some set-up items that gave me a better feeling as to what I wanted the car to do. We definitely improved that, so that was very good. We also continued working strenuously with Honda on some things for 2004, and that really came a long way.

"Overall, it was really a very productive test. I think there was a lot that we learned. It seems crazy to say this, but the 2004 season is just around the corner, andthis test should help us quite a bit in our quest to make sure that all ofour cars at Andretti Green Racing are very competitive. This bit of work gives us a great baseline from which to start."
