Event : Second Race Superfund-Euro3000 Championship
Circuit : Estoril (Portugal) 4.182 km
Car : Lola B99/50

Tomorrow, during the second event 2004 of Superfund-Euro3000 Championship, the Draco drivers Nicky Pastorelli and Fausto Ippoliti will move in to attack of course: the times recorded today, saturday 29th May, on Estoril track, have been fair, but not enough to gain an advances position on starting-grid. Disappointed the Italo-Dutch Pastorelli, seventh, who commented :"I made a very bad qualifying. Now my engineer and me work to analyse what happen. I hope to make better tomorrow."

His team-mate Fausto Ippoliti, who obtained the best sixth lap, he wasted the chance to improve his result because of a mistake :"I made1:31.479 in the first lap with the new tyres, but, in the second lap, when I could have obtained my best time, I mistook. It's a pity. "

At the end of this busy day, Nadia Morini thinks the Pastorelli performance "anomalous": "Very strange the time of Nicky. Now we have to understand what's happened . I'm not satisfied, it's clear. Fausto lost a big chance. He's paying his inexperience : it's his second race on this car and he's here in Estoril for the first time. But I have to say that he's working hard and I see a constant improvement."
