Proteam on right path, says Bennani

Mehdi Bennani: We worked a lot on the set-up and I'm pleased with the job that has been done
Morrocan racer, Mehdi Bennani was on lap record pace as Proteam BMW conducted a two-day test this week at the Circuito Magione, in Perugia, Italy.

As part of the test, the team were trying out new dampers on their BMW 320 TC and Bennani managed over 400 kilometres in total.

“We have been lucky with the weather. We had two wonderful days which enabled us to complete an intensive programme,” team boss, Valmiro Presenzini told

“Mehdi completed 400 kilometres without any technical issues. We tested new dampers and this resulted in setting our record lap-time here at Magione.”

Bennani meanwhile was pleased to be back in the car and feels that he and the team are improving going into 2013: “I had not driven since Macau and it was nice to get back behind the wheel of a racing car,” he added.

“We worked a lot on the set-up and I'm pleased with the job that has been done. I have a good feeling that we're on the right path to improving the car's performance.”
