After a week-end of great satisfactions, Draco Junior Team is returning to base : the fantastic teamwork has allowed the drivers to make an incredible race on two cars very competitive. Nicky Pastorelli has carried out an important success : he has been the race leader from the first corner to the last lap, gaining precious points.

His Team-mate Fausto Ippoliti too has demonstrated his character catching up from 6°row to the 4° place .

Nicky Pastorelli : "At the green lights, I have made a good start overtaking the polesitter in the first corner and I have taken the lead. Rocha has reduced the gap, but he has made a mistake going into the Ascari chicane, moreover I maintained always 2 seconds on the Brazialian. From the pit wall my Team indicated the pace to keep the lead, and I saved the tyres. I have dealt with this race pluckly but also calmly, because I Knew my car was perfect. I thank all the Team for the good work."

Fausto Ippoliti : "I'm so happy ! At the start, I overtook 3 opponents, and, after the first lap, I was 9° .Then, I put Hodencq under pressure and, after the passing, I engaged a challenge with Babalus, that I won. During all the remaining laps I tried to catch up Del Monte , but the race was nearly ended. This 4°place is an important result , but I have to improve during the qualifying . "

The engineer Andrea Tesi : "A breathtaking race! I admit that the work has been easy. Ever since the free practice the one-seaters was competitive, we have made only little changes. We worked with the drivers on telemetric data to perfect the cars. We are pleased with the results."

Nadia Morini, Financial Director : "I was waiting this success!! We worked really hard in Monza, and we organized a special welcome for guess and sponsors. We had a Vip-room where we have shown the Draco imagine at one's best. The Box has been renewed in this Italian event. Ippoliti demonstrated his talent finally, he's got what it takes. Pastorelli worked very well all the week-end, he made a masterpiece. Now I thank all the Team, one by one. Everyone is sharing in this victory.One flaw : the Adriano Morini's absence, in Great Britain with Augusto Farfus. We called him after the race at once, and we have shared the great joy ! I want to thank also our Sponsors and friends, who supported and incited us in this important race . Thank you !"
