Exciting test day for new Team Betta Electrical Falcons.

Queensland Raceway was a buzz today, with as many as six teams putting their race cars through their paces in the final test window prior to the 2003 curtain raiser The Australian Grand Prix event March 7-9 next.

Briggs Motorsport rolled out their two new Team Betta Electrical BA Falcons cars 65 and 66 driven by Paul Radisich and Dean Canto today for a full on gruelling test session.

Both cars performed extremely well, with neither of the new V8 Supercars missing a beat all day.

John Briggs principal of Briggs Motorsport commended the entire team for producing two of the finest new BA Falcons V8 Supercars, achieving an absolutely performance all day with nothing more than the mandatory suspension set-up being required along bedding the brakes in during the all day test session he said.

This quite an achievement for the entire team, when you consider the many thousands of hours involved with their construction, it's very pleasing to come out here to Queensland Raceway today and find both new cars have exceeded the entire teams expectations.

The new BA Falcon Supercars look great and have much-improved handling over last years AU Models.

Briggs went on to say it is always difficult in having to build two new race cars in such a limited time, you literally start from scratch, everything is new and is very time consuming, however to come here today and see the finished product circulating around the circuit with such ease and faultless performance all day, well it's almost like winning Lotto, he said.

Paul Radisich said he was very impressed with his car 65, considering this is the first occasion the car has turned a wheel, the results of today's testing indicate we have something very special in the two Team Betta Electrical V8 Supercars

And they promise to be very competitive entrants in this the 2003 Series.

This BA model Falcon has many benefits over the previous model, both in handling and in straight line speed, I'm certainly looking forward to this season knowing I'm back in the hunt to reclaim those podium finishes, something that has eluded me in recent times he said.

Dean Canto, driver of the second Team Betta Electrical race car 66 was also suitably impressed with it's performance stating both cars really only needed minor set-up adjustments for the circuit and as a result both cars posted very impressive times consistently all day in this their very first shake down session.

Like Paul I'm very excited about the Team's prospects this season and looking forward to the curtain raiser, the Australian Grand Prix event in Melbourne to further get a feel for the new car in order to master the Albert Park circuit.

I was very pleased with my times today and must congratulate the team members for their untiring effort in producing such impressive race cars he said.
