C.S.A.I. TEST IN VALLELUNGA
First contact with F.3000 for Frassineti, Terranova and Massironi

The racing school run by the Italian Federation (Scuola Federale C.S.A.I.) organized today a test in Vallelunga to allow some of the best F3 drivers to have a first contact with the more powerfull F.3000 cars.

This chance was given to Alex Frassineti, Giuseppe Terranova and to the F3 Italian champion Mauro Massironi (just came back from Macau GP), who all drived the Coloni Motorsport car of the F.3000 Rookies Team (with which Johnny Cecotto, Frankie Provenzano and Bianca Steiner have debuted this year).

The weather was sunny and the programme for the day was followed without any problem, so that all the drivers have been able to cover 30 laps each, split in four runs.

In the beginning they just familiarized with the car but then progressively improved the lap times, with a best chrono of 1'26''10 recorded by Frassineti, but with the other two drivers quite close.

Cristiano Del Balzo, "Scuola Federale CSAI" director, has said after the test that "the three drivers have been really professional, as showed also by the lap times, and that it is important that they have committed no mistakes."
