JOURDAIN JR. TESTS IN HOMESTEAD

This Thursday, Mexican driver Michel Jourdain Jr. began a two-day testing session with his new Lola B99/00 at Miami-Dade Homestead Motorsports Complex. This is the second time the Herdez backed driver drives his new Champ Car.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #19 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing: "I am very happy with the work we have done today. Ben Bowlby and Andrew Bruton of Lola performed the engineering. Their experience and knowledge proved to be very important in the results reached today. We learned a lot about the performance of the new Lola and my best time was a 26.1 seconds lap."

He added: "We didn't run toward the end of the day, when we could be faster, because the weather is fresh and less windy. However, we think that we will be running within the 25 seconds per lap. We will try more settings and we will use a fresh engine and this will help, too."

"No doubt the team took the right decision to test again in Homestead before the race. The car has a lot of potential and we are trying to maximize what we have in order to achieve good results during Round 1 of the FedEx Championship Series."
