After following the forecast, and a minute by minute forecast by Charlie Budd, it seemed we were going to have to have snow tyres for testing!! So it was to my delight that when I looked out of the window on the Friday morning it was blue sky, cold and a bit damp, but not a bit of snow or rain in sight.
My car had been away for the usual winter checks and the usual Winter upgrades (by Paul Thompson) so we were hoping for a good day's testing.
We headed out after about an hour on a set of wets but the racing line was far too dry so came straight back in for slicks as we didn’t want to damage the wets.
With the new compound tyre we were unsure of how it was going to be and sadly we were still on old rubber on the rear as there were no rear tyres to be brought, so it was not going to be real test with the new rubber all round.
Throughout the day we made a few changes to suspension but nothing drastic and despite being a bit slow early on we came away with zero problems and headed a good time of 2.15.119.
