Valencia : Draco J. Team ends a positive testing day

Within twenty days the first race'll mark the beginning of Superfund- Euro3000 Championship, so, today 13th April Draco

J .Team moved to the Valencia circuit to test the last time. Seven drivers on track, four the present Teams for the last comparison before Pergusa. The Draco Team is satisfied with the results, though, at the end of the day, the red flag hindered to complete the test with the new set of tyres.

Infact, while Nicky Pastorelli made the first lap with the new tyres, the red flag indicated that the Famà driver Loic Deman had leaved the track, compelling the Italo-Dutch driver to return to the box. Fausto Ippoliti doesn't had the time to go out, because when the Deman's one-seater has been recovered , the testing hours ended.

The Team Owner Adriano Morini, who was away from the track because of a previous engagement, he supervised the work at a distance : "I stayed in steady contact with my two engineers - he declared - and we cotrolled together the results which we registered little by little. I have to say that we suffered a damage with the red flag, because with the new tyres we could have gained 7-8 tenths in a lap. However I'm plased with our results, we are optimist.".

Nadia Morini, Financial Director, concluded : "Now the Team returns to base, tomorrow we make a meeting to analyse the data of Valencia. The 2nd May is near, it's the time to organize our-selves for the first Championship race."
