another key acquisition to complete the team’s line-up for 2009. After intensive negotiations the flying Finn Jaakko Mikkonen was contracted on immediate effect, taking the seat next to Mattias Stahre from Spa onwards. In Mikkonen the team got one of the most talented sim racers on the grid as the Finn is currently ranked 3rd in the world championship. Both parties settled to a decision after an issue with Mikkonen’s old team, which ultimately secured the deal.
The Finn in commented on the matter in his characteristic short style
Jaakko Mikkonen"Oh well. A new team again. Not much to say about it. I really hope the rest of the season will be less exciting off the track."
Ondrej Kuncman commented: "Things change quickly here. One day I’m racing, the next day I’m not. I am naturally happy that Jaakko joins Precision Motorsports, even though it was a bit unexpected move. In these circumstances we would be stupid not to sign him. If we didn`t, someone else would. At the same time I am slightly disappointed because I worked hard to make the comeback. I must honestly admit though my pace isn’t as good as his so this is just a step forward and more importantly we have a secured driver for rest of the season."
