Josh Beaulieu Flies in First Toyota Atlantic Test Barber Dodge Pro Series racer Josh Beaulieu had his first taste of a Toyota Atlantic Swift 014.a today, testing with Michael Shank Racing at Buttonwillow Raceway. Beaulieu, a resident of Langley, British Columbia, completed 130 miles during his very first visit to the Buttonwillow circuit, posting a best lap of 57.3 seconds on scrubbed tires – a time less than a half-second from the unofficial track record.

Team owner Michael Shank commented on the test: I was really impressed with Josh today. I knew he had shown a lot of speed last year in Barber Dodge, but what really opened my eyes was his approach and willingness to put in the kind of effort that it takes to completely understand these cars from the engineering standpoint. He worked extremely well with our engineers and responded with a real quick time on a day when there were more experienced drivers on the track with him.

Overall, I would say that he easily surpassed all of our goals for him and showed his outright speed in a very short amount of time. Of course I am very pleased about the way the test went, said Beaulieu. We were running on scrubbed tires all day, so I think there is plenty of room for improvement. The car was working quite well, and to be honest I found the grip in the braking zones unbelievable compared to anything else I have raced.

I thought the team did a great job, and these guys really showed they are gearing for a run at the title next season. I don’t yet know if the CART Toyota Atlantic Championship is in the cards for me next season, but we are working very hard to put a deal together. Michael Shank Racing is based in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, (near Columbus) and has been a full-time competitor in the CART Toyota Atlantic Championship since 1996 with drivers such as Sam Hornish Jr.

Kenny Wilden, Martin Basso, Rodolfo Lavin, Ryan Dalziel, Sepp Koster and Bruno St-Jacques. Josh Beaulieu, in his second year of professional auto racing, has established himself among the next generation of Canada’s racing stars.

Details on new rules Fans attending next year’s United States Grand Prix weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and other Formula One events will get to see a dramatic, new two-day qualifying system in which the drivers will run one at a time, just one of the rule changes on which the FIA Formula One Commission has agreed for 2003. The Commission met Oct. 28 in London and decided on these regulation changes:

Qualifying

There will be two qualifying sessions — Friday and Saturday, both between 1 and 2 p.m. Qualifying to be one flying lap for each car, cars to run one at a time. The running order on Friday will follow the championship standings (previous year at first race), with championship leader going out first, second in championship running second, and so on.

The running order on Saturday will be determined by the Friday times (which do not count for the grid), so that the fastest on Friday runs last on Saturday, the second fastest second last, and so on.

Practice schedule

This will remain Friday: 11 a.m.-noon; Saturday: 9-9:45 a.m. and 10:15-11 a.m.

Testing

Provided that by Dec. 15 at least three teams indicate to the FIA not to run more than 10 car-days of private testing between March 1-Nov. 1, the teams which agree to this can test at each event from 9-11 a.m.

Friday and may use their spare car and their test driver during this period.

World Championship points

Lamborghini Diablo

From 2003, points will be awarded down to eighth place on the scale 10:8:6:5:4:3:2:1. Previously, points were awarded to sixth place on the scale 10:6:4:3:2:1.

Team orders

Team orders that interfere with the race result are prohibited.

The 2003 Belgian Grand Prix

In the absence of unanimous agreement by the teams to run at the 2003 Belgian Grand Prix without tobacco advertising, this event has been removed from the World Championship calendar.

Tires

Each team will be allowed to use two different dry tires at each event. Previously, each tire company could supply only the same two dry tires to each of its teams. Teams will continue to be limited to 10 sets of dry tires per event.

Only one type of wet tire can be used per event.
