Valencia Test Round-Up

Date: 30-31.03.2005
Circuit: Valencia (Spain)
Drivers: Tom Dillmann, Kamui Kobayashi, Patrick Rocha

Third official test for the drivers that will participate in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Championship. After the sessions of Monza and Le Mans, this time the thirty-three drivers went on track in Valencia, where the second seasonal appointment will take place. For Japanese Kamui Kobayashi and Frenchman Tom Dillmann it was their first experience on the Spanish circuit.
"It was a very important test, considering the weather conditions we had in Spain. High temperatures during the day allowed us to work on the set up in view of the summer events, when the weather will be similar. Good performances for our drivers, who were always among the fastest in every condition" said Grazia Troncon, Team Manager of the Venetian team.
Our three drivers were also satisfied with the results
Tom Dillmann: "I am not completely pleased with the chronometric results. I could have done better. Anyway, on these two days we worked well, looking for an optimal set up under conditions that we will surely find in summer."
Kamui Kobayashi: "It was my first experience on the Ricardo Tormo circuit, here in Valencia. It is a very technical track and we worked very hard to develop the vehicle."
Patrick Rocha: "I am pleased with the work carried out on this track under different conditions and temperatures. With used tyres the car was very competitive, then with new tyres I made a mistake that affected my performance."
The following appointment will be next week on the German circuit of Oschersleben for the fourth official session.
