Giovanardi completes two-day test|1|
The new Porsche Panamera S provided good vibes to N.Technology, at the end
of a 2-day non-stop test held at Vallelunga. The car, set to debut in the
SUPERSTARS SERIES during the upcoming round at Mugello (July 24-25), was
brought on-track by Fabrizio Giovanardi, who experienced several set-up
solutions without running in qualifying conditions.
The goal, set by Team Manager Tiziano Minuti, was to observe the overall
behavior of the car in relation to the technical modifications applied.
"We're extremely pleased - told Minuti - as we didn't experience a single
inconvenience, and on the other hand, we tried to understand how the car
work, as it proved really responsive to set-up changes".
The Italian driver clocked 32 laps on Saturday, before having the chance for
some longer runs on Sunday, on both dry and wet weather. The rain factor
proved quite valuable for the team in order to collect some different sets
of data. "For most part, we lapped with old tires and a lot of fuel on board
- continued Minuti - we have to learn the car's basics, rather than go for
one fast lap".
Giovanardi's best mark on Saturday was set in 1:42.736, before improving in
the first run on Sunday with a lap of 1:42.704.
While the SUPERSTARS SERIES was set for a break after the intense weekend at
Hockenheim, CAAL Racing also went on-track at Magione. The team owned by
Corrado and Luca Canneori ran on Saturday and Sunday with its two Mercedes
C63 AMG racecars, driven by Luigi Ferrara and David Baldi.
