Massari and JDC Motorsports set for break-out showing at Mid-Ohio.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN. (July 15, 2002) -JDC Motorsports and driver Anthony Massari are poised for a strong showing at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in early August, heading into the final stretch of the 2002 Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship season.

The team is eager to return to Mid-Ohio, as the series supports the CART FedEx Championship Miller Lite 200. Mid-Ohio is a course Massari knows as well as any other driver in the Zetec Championship series. The team ran strong in early season tests at Mid-Ohio, but hoped for a stronger finish at the race in June, qualifying 12th and placing 10th in the race.

"I love driving Mid-Ohio," said Massari. "My experience of the course and the hard work of everyone on the JDC Motorsports team makes me eager to take the wheel there again."

Early season testing at Mid-Ohio went well for the JDC Motorsports crew, but the team felt they left a little something on the table during the American Le Mans weekend in late June. After small setup changes made during the practice sessions to correct a slight exit oversteer condition, qualifying saw heavy traffic and numerous black flags that kept the team from posting its fastest time. Qualifying 12th, Massari ran a consistent race and finished in 10th place.

The JDC Motorsports team knows the value of accumulated data from series events.

"We've had great support from Van Diemen, Primus and all the suppliers to the Zetec series," said Massari. "Now all we need is to find a way to gather some additional data on various set-ups to really take the next step. Another car to share data with would certainly help us get there."
