"My car is not bad when we're running on fresh tires," said Gugelmin. "The biggest problem I had today was battling an inconsistent car for both sessions. I seem to be struggling for a clean ride and the bumps are so extreme here that my car is striking the circuit a lot. We also can't seem to be as aggressive going into the corners the way I like to, because the rear of my car keeps coming out on me. But, that's something we can fix. If we can get more control of the car and avoid touching down over the bumps we'll be alright."

"This is obviously not my best day in CHAMP Cars, but we still have plenty of time to correct things," said Dixon. "My car is not as consistent as I would like, but I didn't really get a clear track at the end to see what I could do. I seem to be having a ride problem down the straights so I have to pick my spots carefully entering the corners. I'm touching down a lot at the front of my car, so that is something we will correct before qualifying. We have some work to do, but I know we'll be ready for qualifying."
