Le Mans Test Jonathan Summerton

Starting the Le Mans weekend at this famous and legendary track with a Thursday test day the F3 Euro series was treated to fine weather. As the cars took the track and the drivers learnt the corners, times fell.

Jonathan Summerton, coming straight from driving the team USA A1 GP 550 horsepower car, got straight down to business and turned again some of the fastest sectors. At the end of the first ninety minute session he was comfortable with 5th fastest time.

In the second afternoon session, with some fine tuning by the engineers, Jonathan was in 4th place until the closing minutes when several cars opted to put new tires on and subsequently reduce their times. At the checkered Jonathan was the fastest driver on old tires with 12 cars within 1 second.

Asked about the test Jonathan said, "The change to the F3 from the A1GP was difficult but the team gave me a great car and hopefully we learnt what we need to go out tomorrow and qualify in the top three".
