Forsythe Championship Racing Winds Up Pre-Season Testing

Sebring, Florida - March 23-24, 2005 - Forsythe Championship Racing hit the pavement in full stride at the unofficial winter home of Champ Car World Series testing as Sebring hosted the final test days of the pre-season. Paul Tracy and Rodolfo Lavin put in some fast laps with Tracy comfortably quicker than his pursuers on Day 1 while Lavin, in his first test laps of the 2005 season, posted competitive times both days.

"The work we did in Fontana (previous test days on March 8-9) paved the way for our results these last two days" said Tracy, "and the guys worked really hard to optimize the car. The Bridgestone tires are perfect again this year, very consistent and grippy. We went for speed yesterday and then today we worked on consistency with used tires and a heavy fuel load. It's nice for the team to make a statement here this week, and I'm looking forward to going for my fifth win at Long Beach."

Paul Tracy is defending champion of the season-opening Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, broadcast live on NBC, Eurosport and other major international broadcast partners. The race takes place on Sunday, April 10; check local listings for broadcast times in your area.
