Toronto, Ontario, Canada (July 14, 2000) - Norberto Fontana posted a provisional qualifying speed of 90.044 mph (71.166 seconds) in his #10 DIRECTV Toyota/Reynard this afternoon on Toronto’s 1.721-mile temporary street course. Currently, he is 17th on the starting grid, which puts him on pace to make his best Champ Car start this weekend in the Molson Indy Toronto.

Norberto Fontana: “The DIRECTV car has felt good all day. We need to work on the traction and find a bit more grip, but I’m happy with how the day has gone, especially since I’m still learning the track. We held the number one position for a while during our session, but traffic held me up a bit right at the end and we lost a little ground there. It’s supposed to be wet again tomorrow, so hopefully this good run will carry through to the final qualifying.”
