Friday at the Baglione hotel the presentation of the Draco Team Season 2006 took place. It was a rather unusual gathering, with the drivers who will be defending the colours of the yellow-blue Team taking part.
Nadia Morini, the Team Manager commented:
'We have now organised 16 presentations and, apart from changing the presenter and the usual speech about the programme, considering the various locations, the Draco Team could only create minor forms of entertainment, like the famous pit-stop, or driving the cars right into the showroom.
The 'Due Torri Baglioni' Hotel is a wonderful setting where nothing more could really have been done, it is a historic and delightful place and therefore we decided to do something different. We included the Draco staff and the Draco-drivers in the presentation.
It turned out to be a rather private affair and less 'showy', but I believe that it represented more closely our view of the world of sport. A display of professionalism but also love. This special part of our lives was represented there, us, together with Tomas Kostka and Pastor Maldondao, Fabrice Walfisch (1999), Augusto Farfus (2003) and MarcusWinkeloch (2005). Tomas' father asked me how my love for all this began: 'I don't know! It's like painting a picture, there is a canvas a day in my blood, and I don't know why, but if I could no longer do it I would feel empty and useless, it's my life!! I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.'
Although we chose a rather difficult day, right before the Easter weekend, 130 people turned up at the gathering.
Adriano Morini, the Draco Team Owner commented:
'I must say that I wasn't expecting so many people, because the day chosen wasn't ideal, but we have to make use of the time when there aren't any races or test-drive sessions, so we didn't have much choice. However, the strong ties which unite the Team and their friends were once again very evident. I was very happy to be there...in my home town, with all the Team, the drivers, and to see that even our ex-drivers from previous years come to see us again when they can...! Well, now we have to concentrate on the Championship and work towards that so that we don't disappoint anyone, and above all ourselves.'
Well, this season is about to begin, and we would like to thank everybody, the Manager and staff of the Due Torri hotel which belongs to the Baglioni Family for their hospitality . Our drivers who came along and our friends, because they are truly friends and supporters first and then Sponsors. We had a great time with you all, and we hope you all feel the same, and we look forward to seeing you at the race-circuits.
