Coloni Motorsport wants to confirm Imola's performance in Pergusa with Christian Montanari and Marco Bonanomi

Fifth round of the Italian F.3 Championship will take place on Sunday June 15th in Pergusa and Coloni Motorsport will present himself on the fast Sicilian circuit with the will to confirm the excellent result obtained in Imola, when Marco Bonanomi took the first victory of the all-new Lola-Dome F106 and Christian Montanari earned the third place.

Coloni Motorsport worked hard in the break period between Imola and Pergusa, taking big steps forward with the car development: the F106-Mugen Honda in fact will show in Sicily some new solutions, both aerodynamic and mechanical. The aerodynamic novelties tended to reduce air resistance and the mechanical ones have been entirely designed by Coloni Motorsport engineers and then realized in the team's factory. This further developing step has been designed for fast tracks and both the squad and drivers are very confident about it.

First contact with the fifth race of the Italian F.3 on Friday with the free practice, Saturday the two qualifying session and then the race on Sunday.

Christian Montanari, driver: "I care about achieving a good result because in Imola we saw that the car has a great potential. We have many chances of win too, I want to take my first victory in F.3. In Imola in fact I have a very good pace, the car was very good and I'm sure that we will present ourselves in Pergusa with good possibilities. Pergusa is a beautiful circuit, but it will be a demanding race: for drivers because of the heat but for the cars too due to the high kerbs".

Marco Bonanomi, driver: "I expect to get a good outcome in Pergusa after what we have done in Imola. I'm very confident about the new developing steps we will bring in Sicily and I'll do my best, facing the race with great concentration: it's fundamental to achieve as many points as possible for the championship. I know this circuit, I ran here in 2002 and I like such a fast track. I think in Pergusa the driver's qualities are very important".
