KV RACING TECHNOLOGY AND E. J. VISO HAVE SUCCESSFUL TEST AT SEBRING
INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- FEBRUARY 15, 2010 -- KV Racing Technology and E. J. Viso had a successful test today at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida.
Viso ran 103 trouble-free laps (171 miles) posting an unofficial fast time of 53.89 seconds. This was KVRT's first test of the off-season.
"KV Racing Technology had a successful test today and I am very pleased with the way both the team and E. J. performed," said KVRT General Manager Mark Johnson. "This was our first pre-season test and it went off without a hitch. The team did a great job preparing the car and it performed flawlessly. The engineering staff had a solid plan and we accomplished everything on our check list. I also want to complement E. J. on the job he did. This was his first test with our team and he was professional and worked well with the engineers and crew. Based on his feedback and the plan the engineers had in place we were able to collect some valuable data."
Johnson went on to say, "At this point, we will sit down with E. J. and discuss further plans for the 2010 IndyCar Series season. I do anticipate testing him again at the IndyCar Series Open Test at Barber next week."
Viso said, "I am very happy with the way the test went with KV Racing Technology. The car was prepared well and we got a lot of work done. This is a very professional team, a great group of engineers and mechanics. I felt very positive and comfortable working with them. It's been a little difficult because it is very cold so you need to be very careful. We are not here to take risks; we are here to get data. I want to thank my sponsors, PDVSA, Herbalife, CANTV and SBA Airlines, for their support and I look forward to sitting down with Jimmy (KVRT co-owner Jimmy Vasser) and Mark (Johnson) to determine what our future together will be."
Viso, 24, spent the last two IndyCar Series seasons competing for HVM Racing. His best finish is a fourth at St. Petersburg in just his second IndyCar race. Viso also led his first career IndyCar Series laps at St. Petersburg (12).
