Good start for Ombra in Macau

Ombra Racing adventure at the Macau Grand Prix 55th edition has began. The terrible six Km city track is waiting.

The Dallara powered Mugen Honda, with the usual mastercraft setup of the Chignolo d'Isola team, showed since the first session their potential. The English James Winslow, who did an experience on this track in 2006, got the 11th place. Some more difficult for Matsushita at his first laps between these rail and walls, he closed at 30th place.

The afternoon session, that determined the provisional starting grid for Saturday qualification race, has been troubled, as always here in Macau. The last red flag involved both Ombra drivers: Matsushita crashed the car while Winslow was facing his best performance, he was presumed to be in top ten, for this reason the English signed the 17th time, while the Japanese finished at 26th place.

Lot of work at Ombra Racing box to put the car #26 in good shape for tomorrow qualifiyng practice. The team is very confident after the choice to save the new tires for the second qualifying session.

Massimo Pollini, Manager: "In our first day, we got all that can happen in Macau, a wonderful race on a track as wonderful as selective and where you pay hard every single mistake. Matsushita gave us some extra work, but the team did a great job as always. The car showed immediately performing and Winslow put on the field his experience on this track. We're convinced that the choice to save the new tires for tomorrow could be decisive."
