An Interview with Fabrizio Del Monte Before Dijon

The Superfund Euro 3000 series has two very important back to back rounds coming up.

The seventh and eighth round will be on September 12 in Dijon and on September 19 in Zolder, respectively and these two races will probably make out who will claim the title.

At the moment Fabrizio Del Monte is in the lead with a nine point advantage over Pastorelli. We interviewed Fabrizio before he leaves for Dijon.

How did you prepare yourself for this double event?

As usual I prepared myself to be 100% physically at the top and together with the team, we worked on optimising the braking system. These two back to back races will be very demanding and we have to give our best because both Dijon and Zolder can be crucial for the championship.

A championship that at the moment has you in the lead..

That's correct but I can't put my guard down. We had 3 great victories at the beginning of the season followed by 2 other well deserved podiums. Then came the first blow in Monza. I had to retire after being hit and for having a bend suspension. Now it is time to get back to winning precious points again.

Who are the adversaries that you fear the most?

Pastorelli is right behind me and he will do anything to win the next races. Auinger is also proving to be very good and he's fighting for the championship as well. Whatever the case, the drivers in the Superfund Euro 3000 Series are high quality drivers and so anyone can be a threat.

Are you planning a particular tactic for Dijon?

We are surely not going to France to only protect and defend our position. We are going to Dijon to do our best and win. Monza has taught me that those who start in the front row don't get involved in as many accidents as those who start from behind. So we will push hard during the qualifying session. My adversaries have grown in the last few weeks and they will put up a great battle. Getting a good result in Dijon and Zolder will also be important psychologically.
