March 2005 Formula 3 Asia
Press Release Asian F3
again fastest on day two of Batangas test Mar 20 05
The Fastron Racing Team fitted new tyres at the end of the
day to their Dallara 304 Nissan and Mikola banged out a string
of sub 1m 24 second laps, finishing with an impressive 1m
23.29 time. The car and engine is great, I am sure a
1m 22 can be done reported Mikola.
OHara continued to struggle with wayward handling on
his TOMS Asia Dallara 302/4 car, struggling to break
the 1m 26 second lap marker. Mikola allowed OHara to
drive his car for a few laps, the Irishman immediately working
down to a 1m 24.0. The TOMS team are now working on
the root of the problem with OHaras car.
Pena posted a 1m 24.4 lap his Team Goddard Minardi
Team Asia Dallara 301 TOMS. The time was set in the
hot mid day sun and at that point it was identical to the
fastest time set by Mikola. A broken gear curtailed his running
and he was unable to venture out when the track was at its
fastest. The team will continue testing tomorrow, Monday.
Sy gave the day a miss, preferring to return on Tuesday of
