What They’re Saying

Simona De Silvestro, driver, #16 Paretta Autosport Chevrolet: It was a good first session just getting to know everyone. It felt like I got up to speed towards the end okay, but for sure there is some work to do with my driving and finding confidence especially in the high speed corners. We just need to keep chipping away and hopefully tomorrow will be one step better. 

Beth Paretta, owner, Paretta Autosport: The goal for today was just to give Simona as much time on track as we could, and just getting her reacclimated to the car and Road America. We are happy with how it went, and can’t wait to be back on track tomorrow.
