Last season Spyker Squadron finished in style with a podium position in the 1000 km of Silverstone and a fourth position in the Mil Milhas of Brazil (1000 miles). As soon as the team returned from Brazil the team worked hard to prepare new cars for the 2008 season.
New components have been developed incorporating new technologies and modifications were designed. These will get their first track time next week when the team will head south for Portugal to test them in practice at the Autodromo do Estoril. The team will use a 2007 C8 Spyder GT2R driven by Dutchman Peter Kox for this test.
The team tests for two full days and will focus on a number of areas such as engine cooling, a new differential, new spec Moton dampers, power steering and rear wings. The team will also test a new type of tyre and improved brake pads.
Next month the team will announce its 2008 plans in further detail.
