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:

Pos Driver Team Time Speed
1 Franck Montagny Forsythe Pettit/Racing 50.788 seconds 118.304 mph
2 Oriol Servia PKV Racing 50.856 seconds 118.145 mph
3 Justin Wilson Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing 50.927 seconds 117.981 mph
4 Franck Perera Conquest Racing 50.986 seconds 117.844 mph
5 Alex Figge Pacific Coast Motorsports 51.097 seconds 117.588 mph

On day two:

Pos Driver Team Time Speed
1 Franck Montagny Forsythe/Pettit Racing 50.209 seconds 119.668 mph
2 Justin Wilson Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing 50.448 seconds 119.101 mph
3 Graham Rahal Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing 50.474 seconds 119.040 mph
4 Franck Perera Conquest Racing 50.495 seconds 118.990 mph
5 Oriol Servia PKV Racing 50.505 seconds 118.966 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.
