Thomas greets from the podium the Speedcar Series Championship...

Bahrain, April 26th 2009 Our representative has finished on the second place the last round of the Speedcar Series Championship after a roaring start of the race with him leading firmly for the first 30 minutes of the race. Only after dueling with the fellow countryman Vitantonio Liuzzi, Thomas let him pass first. This performance confirms his sixth place in the general ranking.

Hereafter Thomas declarations: "I end up this wonderful experience from the podium in Bahrain, exactly where it had started. I don't disguise I'm a little bit afraid for this victory lost during the very last laps. In the beginning I gained a good spread on my competitors and I believed I could. I pushed so much in the first laps maybe demanding too much to the tyres, that's why I've had some probles in the end with the rear drive and breaks. I congratulate with Tonio (Liuzzi) for his great performance.

I want to thank all impeccabile mechanicians of Palm Team, engeneer Luigi Urbinelli who has well advised me on the way to recover my performance from yesterday (Saturday) and also Claudio Berro who wanted me to be here. It was great and I hope having the chance of being part of this family during the next Championship. We are thinking of the huge work to be done in Silverstone with a brand new vehicle like Ford GT 1, that will be disclosed only during official free proofs...".
