Viso completes KVRT test

EJ Viso completes a day of testing with KV Racing Technology, with the prospect of more outings to come
EJ Viso has completed a successful test at Sebring with the KV Racing Technology team as he works towards a return with the team in 2010.

Viso ran 103 trouble-free laps during the test, posting an unofficial fast time of 53.89 seconds. The test was KVRT's first test of the off-season.

“KV Racing Technology had a successful test today and I am very pleased with the way both the team and EJ performed,” KVRT general manager Mark Johnson said. “This was our first pre-season test and it went off without a hitch. The team did a great job preparing the car and it performed flawlessly. The engineering staff had a solid plan and we accomplished everything on our checklist.

“I also want to complement EJ on the job he did. This was his first test with our team and he was professional and worked well with the engineers and crew. Based on his feedback and the plan the engineers had in place we were able to collect some valuable data.”

“At this point, we will sit down with EJ and discuss further plans for the 2010 IndyCar Series season. I do anticipate testing him again at the IndyCar Series Open Test at Barber next week.”

Viso himself was happy with the way the test had gone and said he was keen to sit down with the team to discuss the future.

“I am very happy with the way the test went with KV Racing Technology,” he said. “The car was prepared well and we got a lot of work done. This is a very professional team, a great group of engineers and mechanics. I felt very positive and comfortable working with them. It's been a little difficult because it is very cold so you need to be very careful. We are not here to take risks; we are here to get data.

“I want to thank my sponsors, PDVSA, Herbalife, CANTV and SBA Airlines, for their support and I look forward to sitting down with Jimmy Vasser and Mark to determine what our future together will be.”
