MILKA DUNO TO TEST AT HOMESTEAD FOR 2007 ROLEX 24
Hometown Test for Duno, Carpentier is Teammate for Test and Race
December 4, 2006, Los Angeles, CA...Milka Duno will test at her "hometown track" in Miami with teammate Patrick Carpentier in preparation for the first race of the 2007 Rolex Sports Car Series season -- the Rolex 24 At Daytona in January, 2007. The two day test will be this Tuesday and Wednesday, December 5 & 6 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
This will be the second of three test sessions for Duno and Carpentier in the #11 CITGO Pontiac Riley Daytona Prototype for their challenge at the 24-hour classic at Daytona International Speedway. The duo tested in November at Daytona and will test there again in January -- three weeks before the legendary race.
During the two day test on the 2.3-mile road course at Homestead, the practice sessions will include both the Daytona Prototype and the Grand Touring classes on the track at the same time. There will be a maximum of six hours available for practice on each day.
"I've been excited about this test session for some time now - as I will be back in the car and with the team and Patrick -- and also because this is my hometown track! We had a good test last month at Daytona and we'll build on that with this test. This is a very sharp team and they're very skilled at building on everything we learn in each test. The car will have improvements from what we learned at our last session and it will be great to get behind the wheel."
"I'm looking forward to test again - I always love to drive the prototype and am very happy to get back into it. We're going to try a few things on the car - try to work on the rear as we have some improvements to make there. Our last test was very good, but we always gotta keep working...so I look forward to that."
