Saturday 14.5.2011 Motorpark Raceway, Virtasalmi, Finland
Excellent race weather, blowy headwind
1. qual. 8,983s
3. qual. 8,888s
no qual. 4 at this evening. We were already on lineup, but not enough time qualifing. Track was closed at 19:00 :(
Engine service and some checking....everything is ok for morning !
4th qual. session too fast...8.863s.
First elination round with Laura Sassi...i really don't now what went wrong...too fast again...8.864s., Time and halftime was almost the same as 4. qual session. Laura Sassi drove 8.890s and won.
My first though the reason for brake out was the tail wind and maybe throttlle stop contoller did not accept new setup...but i checked it from data acquisition system and all setup worked correctly. The most likely reason for brake out was better traction as earlier. The new tires works better and better, and maybe the track grip was better too. Shit happenes :(
Laura Sassi won the race, congratulations !!!!
But overall, the race car and the team worked perfectly. It is very good to continue for next race.
