CHAMPCAR/CART: Long Beach: PWR Friday qualifying recap

Oriol Servia - ...

Oriol Servia - #17 PWR Toyota Lola Bridgestone
Position: 13th
Time: 1:10:092s
Laps: 15
Speed: 101.079mph

"We've been fighting understeer since this morning," said Servia. "The car still has a lot of understeer, so we'll have to work on it tonight and make the improvements before qualifying tomorrow. Because of the understeer, I knew during the morning practice session fifth position wasn't realistic, but I did expect at least a top ten after qualifying, so 113th position is disappointing. I'm sure we'll improve tomorrow and finish in the top-ten."

Scott Dixon - #7 PWR Toyota Lola Bridgestone
Position: 20th
Time: 1:11:142s
Laps: 6
Speed: 99.587mph

"It's been a frustrating day", said Dixon. "We struggled with both the primary and back-up car during the practice session, so we didn't complete a lot of laps. We waited to long going into qualifying. We went out with about 28 minutes remaining and we had pre-load issues with the weigh skates and problems with the differentials. We definitely have a lot of work to do before second round qualifying tomorrow, but hopefully we'll get it done and be ready tomorrow".
