Carlo prepares for fifth round at EuroSpeedway Lausitz02-08-07
With nine points ahead of the number two, Carlo van Dam will take part in the fifth round of the championship at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz as the championship leader. In preparation, Carlo tested at Hockenheim last Tuesday together with his teammate Recardo Bruins Choi.
Carlo: “I tested together with my teammate Recardo last Tuesday at the Hockenheim circuit. We tried different setups and tested with old tyres. I have a best time of 1:36.2, which is quite good I think. It’s difficult to tell how good our performance was as Van Amersfoort was the only team at Hockenheim, but the car felt good during the day. Along with the team, we found some improvements for our setup but also the cooperation within the team has improved.”
Looking forward to this weekend, Carlo wants to reinforce his leading position in the ATS Formula 3 Cup: “It’s a nice and cool circuit to drive. We will drive on the short version of the circuit but I don’t think it’s too difficult. During the free practices on Friday we have two and a half hours to try out new things. I’m really looking forward to this weekend to fight for poles and wins. The weather forecast says rain for Friday and Saturday, but Sunday should be warm with 28 degrees.”nieuwslijst
