Viso hopeful 2009 challenges lead to stronger team
"I'm very happy that I made the decision in early 2008 to come to this great racing category. I've had a great time; I think among the best years of my career. Maybe not talking about success, but it's been a great challenge to be working really hard to get up to speed with this very competitive category. There are so many good drivers.

"It's been a big challenge to be on a small, new team in this category, so the work that we did was twice as difficult as everybody else because we needed to get up to speed with them.

"I think we've done a decent job. In 2008, we had a great year - better than 2009. This season has been difficult. We had some mechanical problems, also some accidents. But we can never forget that it's from these types of years that we learn the most. And I'm sure, as a team, we learned a lot and we will improve ourselves as human beings and as professionals. That's all that matters.

"I'm sure we are all in a much better position for 2010. Hopefully, in the coming year I am going to achieve everything that I'm looking for after these two years of preparation.

"This year we had a nice mix of races. I really need to thank the series for adding some more street and permanent road courses because it's on those tracks that we can achieve our best results. This year I had a blast going back to Japan. It's such a nice place. The people are very respectful and very nice, and it's a beautiful racetrack. I spent some time with my sponsors over there - Herbalife and Arai. I also spent some time with Honda. I would definitely look forward to going back there.

"All the other places we went in Canada and the States, they were also very nice. Some challenging tracks like Indy, and Miami is also a very tough place.  I think the series is making the right decisions and I'm very happy to be part of it." E J Viso
