March 2005 Formula 3 Asia
Press Release Asian F3
Teams to test at Batangas this weekend Mar 19 05
Speedtech, Team Goddard-Minardi Team Asia, Fastron Racing
and TOMS Asia will all be running at the venue of the
first round of the series to held on April 10th.
Sy will be running for Speedtech Asia whilst new signing Dado
Pena will have his first outing in the Team Goddard-Minardi
Team Asia Dallara 301 car. John Ohara will get his first
taste of the TOMS Dallara 302/4 he will race this year
whilst Ananda Mikola will give his new Dallara 304 Nissan
its first run.
Sy has set the mark in recent testing with a 1m 24.4 lap.
Whether this will remain the benchmark after this weekend
is the question. OHara reckons he will be in the 1m
23 lap times without a problem. This test may begin to answer
several questions, what chassis is faster, the 301 or 304
model is high amongst them. Also the performance of the Nissan
engine remains an unknown and should be revealed during the
first major test of the season.
