Duno and Carpentier prepare for 2007 Rolex 24 At Daytona
November 9, 2006, Los Angeles, CA...Milka Duno and Patrick Carpentier tested in their #11 CITGO Pontiac Riley earlier this week in preparation for the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 27 and 28, 2007. The two-day test session offered CITGO Racing seven hours each day to practice on the 3.56-mile road course at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL.
During Monday's test session Carpentier was able to take the #11 CITGO Pontiac Riley to third-fastest and also delivered the fifth-quickest lap in Tuesday's morning session.
"It was great to be back in the garage and on the track -- and the team was exceptional. We had some really good lap times and everything seems to be coming along very nicely. I was able to score my best lap time ever at Daytona in this test. Patrick and I got to spend a lot of time working together and with the team and the synergy is very good. The team worked very hard in preparation for this test and our results showed that and we're looking forward to building on our success with the Daytona test at our next test at Homestead."
"It went really well and I'm very happy about how the day went on Monday. The car is very good and it was a lot of fun and we ran some good times. For the first open test with the team it was fantastic. As always, it is a pleasure to drive with Milka. On Tuesday I did some laps in the morning -- but didn't run too much. There was a bit of traffic so I don't know where we ended up with lap times. Obviously, I am very happy and looking forward to the next test at Homestead in December."
