POSITIVE RUNNING FOR NEW TEAM

CR Scuderia's FIA GT programme got off to a flying start yesterday with a productive test session at Snetterton. The day's running was delayed by freezing fog over Norfolk but, once that lifted, the engines were fired up and the cars took to the track.

The Snetterton test provided the first opportunity for the team to run its two GT2 Ferrari 430s on Michelin tyres. They had a lot of work to get through but with Andrew Kirkaldy, Rob Bell and Tim Mullen on driving duty, they worked steadily through the job list, and all reported that the cars felt good.

"It's good to have a trouble-free run during the first GT2 test of the year," said CRS Team Manager, Malcolm Swetnam. "We will continue our preparations with a three day test in Spain next week, as planned."

The CRS team is heading for a warmer climate next week, to the Monteblanco Circuit, close to Seville. The team will run from Monday until Wednesday with its FIA GT and British GT cars.
