Franck does the biz in testing

Published February 5, 2008

On the first day of testing for Forsythe Pettit/Racing, Mr Montagny topped the timesheets. I’m told this is not his first time in a Champ Car, but that’s still pretty impressive.

The top five of Day 1:

1Franck MontagnyForsythe Pettit/Racing50.788 seconds118.304 mph
2Oriol ServiaPKV Racing50.856 seconds118.145 mph

4Franck PereraConquest Racing50.495 seconds118.990 mph
5Oriol ServiaPKV Racing50.505 seconds118.966 mph

And here’s what Franck had to say about it:

“For the first time in the car, I’m quite happy. Everybody is very motivated inside the team. I was at the factory working with the engineers, the mechanics and everything was fine but you never know until you get in the car. Obviously things are going well. We did everything we wanted to do. So it’s cool, I just hope I will stay in the car for the Championship!”

Don’t we all, Franck, don’t we all.
