Montagny Wants The Leadership

30th August 2001 FRANCK MONTAGNY (Epsilon by Graff) is looking forward to regain his leadership this week-end in the 6th Meeting from the International Single-Seater Series OPEN TELEFONICA taking place at the Circuit of Nevers -Magny Cours (France). Second in the overall, (132 pt), he also mates two French Drivers in his team,young Geoffrey Dellus, and Gregoire de Galzain, both aiming to share a little of success. This is the third meeting that is celebrated abroad, toghether with Estoril (Portugal), and Monza (Italy).

The leader with 145 points is the young Tomas Scheckter, Jody's oldest son, who was dismissed from Jaguar Racing from his role of Development Driver. Instead, Tommy is showing a superb talent in every meeting, "cause I want to show that I'm ready to step into Formula One".

Andrea Belicchi (SITEC Motorsport) is also one of the best drivers in the Series, toghether with the Spaniards Angel Burgeño (Repsol-YPF) and Rafael Sarandeses (Adrian Campos Motorsport).

On the other hand, VENTURINI RACING, the Parma-based team owned by Lello Venturini,has sign two drivers: the newcomer ABEL FAJAS, from Sabadell (Barcelona), who was driving for the spanish Skualo Competicion, and the well reputed Spaniard JORDI NOGUES, whose team, G-Tec is having some serious economical problems. The Catalan has prooved to be one of the quickest drivers, but the little investment of the teams where he has been involved, had been the key of this large period of poor results.

Most of the teams were participating in the two-day private sessions held at the same Magny Cours during last week. The Italian Matteo Bobbi (Adrian Campos Motorsport) lapped the best time in 1.30.266 (169.499 km) Coloni Nissan CN1/ C. Races on Saturday 1 of September, at 11h30 and 14h05 (Local Time)
