The meteo conditions the first day of test to Vallelunga of the F.3000
On the Roman track in Vallelunga, named after Piero Taruffi, the mighy Zyteck engines are roaring once again. These engines are at the very heart of the Lola B02/50 which will themselves be the heart and soul of the new F.3000 championship of Enzo Coloni.
Unfortunately the weather conditions are hindering the work of the teams in this first day of tests, the can't fully profit from the session due to the driving rain-if you'll pardon the pun!
The first driver to get on the track for some trial laps, is the Italian Francesco Dracone, with the Emmebi Team. following we find Luis Razia (ELK Motorsport) and the rookie Ramon Zapata (Emmebi).
With the passing of time and thanks to the wind, the track begins to dry up so that all the drivers can have their first contact with the circuit.
Notwithstanding the unfavourable conditions the teams carry on their development programmes for the first seasonal race, due on the 20th April on this very track in Vallelunga.
We'll see a famous international motorsport name having his debut in Euroseries 3000: Nicolas Prost, son of Formula One Champion Alain Prost. He'll be driving a Cerveza Sol ELK Motorsport.
