Celso Miguez Confirms Good Performance
"This should be my year"

After having commanded the list of times during the morning session the other day at Barcelona, Celso Miguez confirms his good performance in Jarama, with his best lapped time only two tenths behind the record.

Madrid, 8 March 2004 -- The World Series Light Teams had landed at the Circuito of El Jarama following with the collective test schedule of this powerful single-seater category.

The first day of testing confirmed the good performance of Celso Miguez, topping the list f times with a Meycom Sport car, the winning team in 2003, and having achieved a lap only two tenths behind the unofficial record set by Julien Vidot in 1.26.742.

For Miguez I'ts only the title what really matters: "This year I want to win. It's the only way to progress on my career."

Almost spring weather in Jarama allowed good progress in all the teams and most of the drivers putting new tyres at the end second session.

Mathieu Lahaye has demonstrated again his good adaptation to the Series achieving the best second register, only 0.446 behind Miguez. The new Saulnier Racing driver was reluctant: "I like very much the philosophy of my team in terms of work and that allowed me to progress quite a lot in the afternoon. We had a fuel pump failure this morning but the problem was solved later on." The Swiss Harold Primat had to stop the session due to an engine failure. Harold likes very much the Series but his new car is having some reliability problems. "I'm sure the people from AER will do their best and I hope we will regain this loss of time having the chance to test somewhere else."

A last-minute deal allowed Vergani Formula to bring back one of the Series animator, the Yugoslavian driver Milos Pavlovic. Back on duty, Milos achieved the third best register: "It has been a very positive day, and tomorrow we are to confirm our expectations. I liked very much my first journey with the new Team."

Another three drivers have joined the collective test in Jarama. The Frenchman Bastien Briere, who already raced in the WSL, is testing with Epsilon by Graff. The Italian Marco Cemcetti has had his first drive in a Dallara AER car with RC Motorsport while Cristian Cano is behind the wheel in the Meycom Sport car. All drivers did a remarkable progress during the day.
