PCM Wraps First Official Atlantic Test
February 6, 2008 - OXNARD, CA - Less than a week after announcing their return to Atlantic competition and their driver line-up, Pacific Coast Motorsports wrapped their first official Atlantic test of 2008. American standouts Carl Skerlong and Frankie Muniz completed two full days of testing at Sebring International Raceway today. It has been a busy week for the California-based team, as the Atlantic test was completed on the heels of PCM’s senior squad, the Champ Car team’s two-and-a-half day test which was completed on Monday. PCM Atlantic Team Manager, Shane Seneviratne commented on the team’s performance and the driver’s developments, “Overall, I’d say it was a very productive test. We really focused on the upcoming season and technical development.” Seneviratne continued, “Our engineers Burke Harrison (#28) and Tim Lewis (#29) really used this test to develop a book of set-up combinations that they will be able to apply throughout the year. While Carl and Frankie did not necessarily get to display their speed, they did spend a lot of time working with their engineers and developing their racecar. They have a lot of information to take-away and study prior to the start of the season. Everyone did a great job.”

The PCM Atlantic team will return to their California headquarters. The team is still based in the US RaceTronics shop in Bakersfield , but will be moving to the PCM headquarters in Oxnard this month. Frankie Muniz, driver of the #29 PCM/Mazda/Swift will complete a television shoot this Sunday for the European television company, Eurosport. For all of the latest results and news, please visit

“This was a very important test for our team in terms of development. We tested combination after combination and have a lot of great information heading into the season because of it. I am learning so much from my engineer, Tim Lewis. I’ve never really learned how to develop a car, I’ve certainly never spent this much time developing set-up and it is really a great experience and I feel I have a much better fundamental understanding of what the car needs and what I need to maximize the track conditions. We did our best time of the test this afternoon when the track was actually slower; I ran the 12th quickest time at the point. The interesting thing also was that I was quicker on the old tires. It says a lot about the terrific product Cooper Tires provides us. I wish we had one more day because the car we ended up with this afternoon was awesome and I would love to try it out tomorrow morning when the track is at its best! I am really excited to get the season started!”

PCM Atlantic Quotes – Sebring Day One
February 5, 2008 - Frankie Muniz, #29 PCM/Mazda/Swift/Cooper Tires
“It was a good day today, everyday with PCM I am learning so much, it’s awesome and great for my confidence inside the race car. I was a little disappointed this morning; I do not feel like I maximized the session. However, this afternoon was much better and we made a lot of progress. I had the best session I have ever had in terms of the timesheets and I am confident we can be much quicker in the morning, so that is great. Sebring is a great track for testing. It is bumpy like a street circuit, but it also has high-speed corners which are great confidence builders and challenging brake-zones that give you the opportunity to work on late-braking. I have been training everyday over the off-season and it has definitely paid off. It was 80 degrees today and it felt like it was nearly 100% humidity but I still had a lot of energy at the end of the day after 125 laps, I feel great!”
