A few words now for the MRX 4 of TQ driver Daniel Ielasi.

He is running a PICCO engine and in fact PICCO him self is present constantly monitoring his engine performance.
Today Daniel informed me that he is all set with his engine and clutch and he is working on his car in order to prepare it for a final with warm conditions. He is a smart racer and he is very well aware of the fact that his TQ time came in cool and much better conditions than what he will have to face in the final in the middle of the day with the sun heating up the track a lot.
Thus he was kept busy working on his car in order to make it consistant and easy to drive.
To me it looked like his car was very good in cool conditions and still very fast in the warmer conditions but not as consistant, having to fight oversteer in the exit of the corners.
His MRX 4 is box stock, with the only optional in use being Mugen's alternative to the rear rollbar with the blade system.
It is impressive to see how confident he looks. You might think that he is arrogant but it is simply the fact that he has practiced so much and knows his car so well that everything is under control.

1. Ielasi with his MRX4
2. Working on his car
3. His car in pieces
4. His very good PICCO engine
5. Again his engine

Can you ask Ielasi why did he leave Novarossi?
