Coloni Motorsport chases victory in Barcelona.

All is ready for the F.I.A. F.3000 International week end in Barcelona, where Coloni Motorsport always obtained good results, a circuit that has something "special" for the Italian team. In facts, in 2002 on the Barcelona track came the first and extraordinary victory of Coloni Motorsport in F.3000 thanks to Giorgio Pantano, starting the long winning strip that brought Coloni to the second place both in drivers and team standings.

It's not all: Coloni Motorsport confirmed his good "feeling" with Barcelona track also in the recent pre-season tests on the beginning of April, dominating both the first and second day of test with his two young talents, Ricardo Sperafico and Zsolt Baumgartner, placed respectively first and seventh.

Ricardo Sperafico, after having immediately achieved in Imola the first 2003 podium thanks to a perfect race, can now certainly aim to a better result in Spain, where --according to the test- he seems to have no competitors.

Zsolt Baumgartner will arrive in Barcelona with a great will of redeeming himself: he was quite unlucky in San Marino GP when the bad luck hindered him in qualifying and later delayed him in race, stopping the Hungarian while he was catching up very well.

Tomorrow the first verdict on track, with the free practice and the qualifying session, after the Formula 1 testing.

Paolo Coloni , Team Principal:

"We hope to preserve the advantage we earned in the winter, especially on Barcelona track. We worked hard and we invested a lot on our drivers and on the car development; in Imola we already obtained the first fruits of the work done and I'm sure that in Spain too we will get great results".
