Michael prepares for first round of 2001 Season

Michael Krumm completed his final test in the 2001 Nissan Skyline, which he will campaign this season for the Nismo Team in Japan, on Wednesday 04/04/01. he then flew to Long Beach California to compete in the second round of the 2001 CART series.

"The test went very well, we worked mainly on tyres and chassis set up - in preparation for the first round here in ten days time. We set the quickest Skyline time, the Honda's and Toyota's seem to have a little advantage in outright speed, but I think for the race we will be in a strong position"

Michael secured the Japanese GT Championship in 1997 with Formula One driver Pedro De la Rosa. In 2001 Michael shares his Nissan with the promising young Japanese driver, Tetsuya Tanaka

"I am looking forward to driving with Tetsuya Tanaka. He has done most of the testing for this season with our teammate Eric Comas and has done a great job. I have been very busy with my Formula Niippon and Champcar commitments "

The first round of the series will be held this weekend 13 - 15 April 2001 at the TI Autopolis in Japan
