TESTING UPDATE: DRIVE-THRU CREW CONTINUES SOUTHERN TOUR

Location:    Sebring International Raceway, Sebring, Fla.
Dates:        February 6-7, 1999
Weather:    Sunny, mid-80s (F)

On the heels of a successful two-day test at CART's Spring Training in Homestead, Florida, the McDonald's Championship Racing Team continued its pre-season testing program on the 1.67-mile road course at Sebring International Raceway.

Tony Kanaan logged over 325 miles in the #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard, bettering his best time at Sebring by over 0.9 seconds.

"We had a very productive week of testing at Spring Training and Sebring," said Steve Horne. "To be able to do this amount of pre-season testing is a big advantage for us. We are making a lot of progress with the performance of the car, but there is more to do yet."

"It was a very good two days," added Kanaan. "We did over 190 laps, and we found a lot with the car that we can use in the future."
