Coloni Motorsport immediately on top with Ricardo Sperafico in the first F.I.A. F.3000 International test in Imola.

The first day of the official F.I.A. testing session in Imola ended with a really positive balance for Coloni Motorsport, testing today with Ricardo Sperafico.

Coloni Motorsport, which also tested with excellent results the new Zytek exhaust system, achieved the third time with the young Brazilan driver (1.36,742 in the morning session) and therefore the debut of Italian team, capable of obtaining positive results immediately, is good and gives encouraging indications for the incoming 2003 Championship.

Zsolt Baumgartner unfortunately had to see the tests from the pits: the Hungarian in fact, because of an injured knee, has preferred to skip the entire Imola session, in order to avoid risks and complications that could endanger future tests. However, Zsolt will be fit and prepared to run in about one week, ready for the next session in Jerez, Portugal.

Ricardo Sperafico: We tested this morning and the results were good. In the afternoon instead, we worked a lot on setup, but we achieved worst results and we had to return to the morning setup. Im really pleased with the car and with the teams work and I feel good with Coloni Motorsport.

Im confident for the 2003 championship and we are working in the right direction about the cars setup.

Enzo Coloni, Coloni Motorsport: Im very happy with the team and driver; in fact, although Zsolt Baumgartner didnt test today, we placed Ricardo Sperafico in third position. The first test day gave us precious and positive indications for the 2003 Championship.
