FR 3.5 Test Le Mans/Day 2 WORLD SERIES CAR SETS A NEW LAP RECORD IN LE MANS

03.04.2005: FR 3.5 Test Le Mans/Day 2 WORLD SERIES CAR SETS A NEW LAP RECORD IN LE MANS

The all-new Formula Renault 3.5 has established a new lap record in Le Mans, in the second day of the first ever joint test of the World Series by Renault, the new high performance single-seater category that makes its debut in Zolder, on May 1.

The Spanish team Pons Racing team has set a new lap record today in Le Mans with Adrián Vallés (1.22.496). The new Formula Renault 3.5 has become the fastest car in the Buggatti track (4,120 km) since the circuit’s tarmac was completely renewed last year.

13 from the 29 participant drivers are packed in less than one second for this first ever joint test, an idea of the equality that reigns in this championship.

It an exhausting red-flagged day, teams and drivers continued to adapt to this new car with some still getting the feeling of the carbon brakes or the pedal-shift system.

However, drivers reported to find a faster and more driveable car, regarding the former Dallara-Nissan car, used during the Winter Testing. The references will be more precise when both Formula Renault 3.5 team’s cars land in Valencia (12-13 April).
