Zoechling with great Speedcar debut

Austrian youngster Christopher Zoechling nearly shocked Jacques Villeneuve at the first day of the final Speedcar Series test session ahead of the start of Season 2 5-6 December, 2008.

Zoechling lapped the Dubai Autodrome in 1:43.76 minutes and was only outpaced by his team mate, 1997 F1 world champion Villeneuve, who clocked 1:43.56. It was the first official test for the 20-year-old. Mathias Lauda finished third.

"It was simply great. I found my rhythm immediately and was able to do some good laps. Jacques was a bit quicker today, but let's see, if I can break his record tomorrw", the Dubai-based driver commented.

The session will continue Tuesday.
