Coronas and Figueroa Debut in CART Toyota Atlantic

Scuadra Fortia drivers Eduardo Figueroa and Waldemar Coronas debuted officially in the CART Toyota Atlantic Series, after participating in their first qualifying session for the Saturday's race at Fundidora Park, in Monterrey, Mexico.

Waldemar Coronas, #88 Scuadra Fortia: "We made changes for the qualifying session, but they were not good enough. Not as we expected and the car did not get better. The car developed understeer, that's the basic problem and the car did not behave better entering the turns. We are making further changes for tomorrow (Saturday), and we hope to improve our times for the last session."

Eduardo Figueroa, #86 Scuadra Fortia: "At the beginning we were doing OK and the car was better and better. Later, the car developed a lot of understeer and after 6 or 7 laps the car was pretty difficult to drive. We had a problem with the data acquisition system and the set up for the qualifying session was not good. Now, we are working to improve our settings."

Allen Berg, owner of Scuadra Fortia: "It was a hard day for us, however, we learned a lot. We did not improve the car with the changes and we experienced a few problems. We dropped some places with Eduardo (Figueroa), but we are trying to find a solution. We took a big step forward for Saturday." <pre> Position Driver Best Time 11 Waldemar Coronas 1'29.778 23 Eduardo Figueroa 1'34.134
