SUCCESSFUL TEST FOR ALEX LLOYD IN SAVANNAH
McLaren Autosport BRDC Award Winner Alex Lloyd completed 2 successful test days with Jensen Motorsport on the 19/20th December.
The testing was done at the Roebling Road Test Track in Savannah, Georgia. The weather was a pleasant 16 degrees centigrade and so it made for 2 very enjoyable and productive days testing.
"The two days went very well", Alex recalled,"Jensen Motorsport were very professional and a real pleasure to work with. Engineer Adam Marchitto was very knowledgeable and helped me to learn as fast as possible how to make these cars go quickly as they are very different to an F3000 or an A1GP car.
I got down to a good time quickly and from then on it was just a matter of working on myself and the car to get the time down to the fastest we possibly could.
I am very satisfied with my ultimate time as it was just 4 tenths off the fastest time on record. I believe that on another day with the right conditions, that record would be mine."
Team owner Eric Jensen stated, "Alex was a real treat to work with. His feedback and technical knowledge is without question among the best we have ever experienced while working with various drivers. It is not surprising that Alex wins every shootout in which he competes, such as the McLaren Autosport Young Driver Award. We are working currently with Alex on some sponsorship with a view to having Alex join Jensen MotorSport for the 2006 season and beyond."
Jensen MotorSport team engineer Adam Marchitto stated "In fairly cold weather, Alex had a best time of 1:07:7, which is an impressive time considering the track temperature, and that Alex only had two chances on new Yokohama tires. We suspect that Alex could challenge Adam Pecorari's record (set when we tested at Savannah last December using the chicane) if we return to Savannah for another test day this off-season."
