Swiss Driver Tobias Blaettler Tests with Condor Motorsports
Buttonwillow Raceway Park: Swiss Formula 3 driver, Tobias Blaettler tested with Condor Motorsports driving their Toyota Atlantic Swift .014 in a one-day test at Buttonwillow Raceway Park on October 12, 2005.
"I am really excited to test with Condor Motorsports," said Blaettler. "As 2005 Toyota Atlantic champions, I have the very best competitive team on my side. It is the perfect opportunity to experience driving a Toyota Atlantic car in the USA. I want to thank both Carlos Bobeda of Condor Motorsports as well as my management team at Mackey Marketing Group for helping make this possible."
"Tobias did an excellent job for us," said Condor Motorsports team owner, Carlos Bobeda. "We only had available the one day, but Tobias quickly adjusted to the higher downforce and more physical ride of a Toyota Atlantic car compared to a F3. The car was well sorted so Tobias quickly got down to competitive times in a very few number of laps. He will be a formidable challenger in the new Atlantic series should he decide to race here."
Blaettler hopes to capitalize on his test with a full season of Champ Car Atlantic racing in 2006. "I hope this is the first step towards a full season of racing in the USA. We're working on a number of options that could see me race in the United States. After today's test, I am even more excited about the prospects here," added Blaettler.
Tobias Blaettler has been competing in European formula car races for the past five years. Most of his experience is in the highly competitive Formula 3 division. In 2001 and 2002 he competed in the Swiss F3 Championship and more recently in the 2005 German F3 Championship, where he recorded two wins and four pole positions.
