 10th March 2011 - Pembrey Test Day

100311pembbanner

With the first race of the season looming and the team still in high spirits from the successful wind tunnel session at MIRA, it was decided that an official pre season test should be held.
The university has a close relationship with Pembrey Circuit, where much of our testing is carried out. For this test we were fortunate enough to be invited to use the whole track exclusively for the entire day.

With only two days until the test the team had to work hard making sure the car was ready on time. The team worked brilliantly and the car was ready on time with no problems.
The car underwent some more aero testing, with a new part being tried out for the first time; a rear diffuser. This performed well during its early stages of development with Tim noticing some improvement particularly in straight line stability.
We also completed a full race distance, which also included several practice starts on the grid.

Chief engineer Harley Gasson comments on the test:

“We had a very successful test today at Pembrey. Getting a full race distance completed was great and even better that nothing went wrong with the car!
I said how much of a great opportunity it was to test at MIRA, and I feel we owe the same gratitude to Pembrey Circuit and not forgetting the university itself for funding it. At one point we were standing on the pit wall watching the car fly past at over 100mph and we said, ‘this is excellent! We’re at university and we have the race track to ourselves watching all our hard work and effort develop out on the circuit.’ Overall I’m very impressed with the efforts made by the team both on and off the track and I hope this continues throughout the season.”
