Many teams have started their preparation for the 2013 Auto GP season and today, February the 15th, 2013, two of them went on-track at Adria with their already-announced drivers in an effort to get ready for the start of the season, set for the 23rd and 24th of March at Monza.
Alongside its internationally-renowned teams, the Auto GP championship has always enjoyed welcoming new players in motor racing.
One of them, Team MLR71, is about to enter their second season: the Italian-based squad, owned by Michele La Rosa, made their Auto GP debut in 2012 with the goal of turning a personal passion into a fully professional effort.

Laptimes dropped especially in the last hour, when all the cars were fitted with soft tyres and the session became a sort of qualifying practice.
