Team Draco completed a successful testing day at the Vallelunga circuit, today. Both drivers finished the two sessions in top first and second position as a demonstration of an excellent set up and balance on the car and a good feeling of the drivers with their Lola.

Sven Heidfeld (car #7) 2nd quickest time

"The test was very positive for me. I'm happy because my car was really good and I took just few laps to take full confidence and set my fast time. It was easy and in the second session I also reduced my gap from Augusto's lap time. I think we are on the right direction for Brno race, even if I have never been there".

Augusto Farfus (car #8) 1st quickest time

"We have worked hard in order to find the better set up. We have also tried some valuable modifications on the car but, unfortunately, we had to stop our test earlier because we had no more engine-hours".

The Team was satisfied with the test, but the drivers had to stop the it a little bit earlier (around 03.40 p.m.) because they both had finished their engine-hours. In Vallelunga, Team Traini (with new signer Vilander) and Team Famà were also present.

- Team Draco wants also to wish to Augusto a happy (20 years old) BIRTHDAY!! -
