Kevin fourth as testing continues in Barcelona

03.04.2012

Second World Series by Renault pre-season test kicked off on April 3 at Circuit de Catalunya. Morning session was marred by rain and times were not overly meaningful as many drivers did only a handful of laps. Kevin was among them: best of four laps gave him 17th rank among 26 drivers present.

Weather improved in the afternoon and so did Kevin’s position. He ended the day as 4th clocking 1:30.409 on his best lap. Just for comparison: Kevin’s best qualification lap with old car during 2011 WSR rounds in Barcelona was almost exactly three seconds slower – 1:33.426. One should also keep in mind that track conditions were far from ideal today after the morning rain.
