Former Formula 1 driver Andrea Montermini tested Team Racing Box's Maserati MC 12 last week at the Adria race circuit in Italy as part of the team's preparations for the 2005 FIA GT Championship. Running was limited due to some minor mechanical issues, but Montermini was instantly impressed with the car and was quickly up to pace:

"The car is very special. Over recent months I have heard so much about its development, so I was delighted to have an opportunity to drive it and I am very grateful to everyone at Team Racing Box for allowing me to be part of their exciting programme. The Maserati brand has such a rich racing heritage and it was clear from my first few laps that this wealth of knowledge and technical excellence has been expertly applied to produce a stunning race car. The car was beautifully balanced through the corners and was easy to drive. I hope I will have further opportunities to get behind the wheel as I feel it has so much potential."

In 2004 Montermini drove in the Porsche Super Cup securing 4 podium finishes and finished 3rd at 24h of Daytona. The experienced sportscar driver is hoping to drive for Team Racing Box in 2005 having provisionally agreed terms.
