“It’s been really good. We never ran into any trouble and ended up just a fraction off Simona’s time, so I think for my second day in the car, it’s gone extremely well. The team did an awesome job. We didn’t have any problems on their part. “I had one minor detour off the track, but apart from that, everything else ran smoothly. We’ve had two days of flat-out testing pretty much. It’s been quite cold, but it’s been some good testing and it’s been an enjoyable first experience in the Atlantic car. I’ve really enjoyed it.”After a break for the holidays, both Team Stargate Worlds and Christodoulou expect to hit the Atlantic testing trail hard early in the New Year. Both expect to participate in series-sanctioned testing at Sebring International Raceway on the weekend of January 22-24. The team, which is based at Buttonwillow, were also happy with the Lichfield driver’s efforts over the two-day trial. Engineer Burke Harrison explained:
“I was pleased. He was very consistent and obviously has a lot of raw talent. The conditions here weren’t great. There was very little off-track drama at all and the feedback was good. “We made progress on the balance of the car, especially the second day. I thought it was a very good test. That’s the way I judge someone. We were trying stuff, we weren’t just driving around, putting new tires on and looking for a lap. “We worked the day like you would a good test. He never got tired, the times were consistent, his feedback was good, he went out and got after it. All in all, it was a positive test.”
