Stefano d’Aste (PB Racing): “With the engines and rollbars delivery by Lotus Racing we can set up the first nine Lotus Elise Cup PB-R. Our guys is already working on the first two that should be ready for the middle of March; we are just waiting for the gearboxes but their delivery is scheduled within ten days. In the meantime we are still organizing test days to give the chance to try our car: we had many drivers on track in the past weeks, all so enthusiastic. The poor weather did’t stop our plan and, also on wet conditions, they confirmed us the great handling of this car together a very easily drive. This is another proof of the good job done during the Elise Cup PB-R development when we worked side by side with our technical partners“.
