Good first V8 test at Winton Raceway


On Monday R Sport Race Engineering and Fredrik Lestrup arrived at Winton Raceway outside Melbourne for the first pre-season test ahead of the season opener in Adelaide in two weeks time. This was Fredriks first and only opportunity before the season starts to sample the Holden V8 Commodore he will drive at Adelaide.

Fredrik was happy after his first test with the new car and left Winton full of impressions.
“It was a day of many firsts and a completely new experience for me”, says Fredrik. “I felt we had a very good test and it was very important to get a full test day before the season start. This is completely different to what I’ve driven before and there are a lot of things to get used to. Tyres for once are very important and it will be critical to understand and manage them in the races. I’m happy with my own driving today and we didn’t have any problems so I could get a lot of mileage. It was very different to anything I’ve driven before but a lot of fun.”

The team will now go back to Sydney where they will analyze the first test day of the season and prepare for the Clipsal 500 at Adelaide in less than two weeks time.
