Villeneuve and Zonta qualify for the Goiania Stock Car race
22nd, March, 2015
The Shell Racing team duo will start the race from the tenth row after their first proper running in the car on a dry Goiania race circuit.
"I was a little disappointed because the running to date was not in the dry. Today's laps were really the first that we caught good track conditions. At the end of qualy, we got even quicker, this grid is very competitive, two to three tenths and we are further up the grid. Today I'm going to bed frustrated, but knowing that tomorrow we have to improve a lot. The Stock Car is very competitive and the car is difficult to drive but it makes it a fun and exciting experience." says Villeneuve.
Both Villeneuve and Zonta hope for a wet race: the weather forecast again indicates unstable weather for tomorrow, as has been the form of the last three days in Goiania. "As we ran in the rain in free practice, we have the most balanced car in this condition. Today in qualy was the first time we drove in the dry. Our first strategy is to watch the first few laps because there is risk of accidents. We want to get in the points, and Jacques is already increasingly competitive." said Zonta.
The start of the Doubles Race Stock Car will be at 10:30 am, broadcast live on TV Globo.
