AFS/Andretti Green Racing Barber test 2009-03-21

JR Hildebrand ...

JR Hildebrand #26 (2nd): "Barber (Motorsports Park) is a really cool track. There's a lot of fast increasing and decreasing radius corners and a lot of bending and braking. But once you get out there, with the elevation changes, it really is a place where you can learn something setup-wise that will help us with the season opener. It definitely is an interesting place in terms of setup. We started the day with a generic setup and realized we needed to go to the road course setup. And once we did that, we picked up speed. But we're not too concerned with that (speed) today. We're using this test just to figure some things out. The AFS/AGR team is working really hard to find the right one."

Sebastian Saavedra #27 (1st): "We did an awesome job as a team. We divided what we wanted to test with J.R.'s crew and we did a good job finding out the areas we need to improve on for the future. It's just a shame we had an engine malfunction and had to cut the test a little short and to show what we learned the whole day to the very end. Still, I'm happy with everything we learned because it's only my fourth time in this car. Being able to get up to speed this quickly is good, but I also have a lot to learn. I'm really excited to be part of the AFS/Andretti Green Racing team and looking forward to the season opener in a couple of weeks."
