ABAY TOPS THRUXTON TEST

Australian rookie Sam Abay headed the field of 28 drivers, setting the quickest time at Wednesday's official British Formula 3 test at Thruxton in Hampshire.

Despite much of the morning session being hampered by poor weather conditions, the rain eased in the afternoon and with the track drying slightly, the times began to tumble. Abay set the quickest time of the day 11 laps into the afternoon session.

With track conditions once again deteriorating due to heavy rain, the test concluded one hour early.

"The morning session was okay, it was wet throughout, and we didn't change that much on the car. In the afternoon, we made a couple of changes to the set-up and I knew I could make improvements. In terms of preparing the car for the race here next month, the rain compromised everyone's efforts, but from my point of view, every bit of seat-time I can get in an F3 is incredibly valuable." said Abay

The British F3 teams will return to Thruxton for rounds 11 and 12 of the 2008 season at the end of June. The next stop on the F3 calendar will be at Snetterton from 7 8 June.
