FAIRUZ IS RARING TO GO

Fairuz Fauzy is poised to be the title contender for the 2009 World Series by Renault after completing the final official test session at Barcelona.

"I am feeling confident and it was a fruitful session despite experiencing minor technical glitch with the engine at the end of Day Two," said the 26 year-old MOFAZ FORTEC lead driver after the two-day test at Catalunya Circuit (30-31 March).

"In fact, we managed to test under the tortuous weather conditions, which gave us a lot of inputs to understand the characteristics of the car. The variable weather conditions had given the team to gain extra miles in testing the reliability of the car too. It was sunny, cold and torrential rain throughout the test session!" he added.

Fairuz was second quickest in the morning session on Day Two with 1:33.053, behind pole-sitter, James Walker (P1 Motorsport). However, in the afternoon session, he clocked seventh quickest with 1:56.934 on a wet circuit.

Meanwhile, it was not a session to be for MOFAZ FORTEC second driver, Sten Pentus. After having clutch troubled on Day One, Sten had to skip Day Two due to unprecedented problem with the chassis. The Estonia's best time 1:33.874 was set in the morning session of Day One.

The team is working hard to get both cars prepared for the opening round. This will be the first time a Malaysian-owned team competing in the championship.

Round One of World Series by Renault 2009 will kick's off at the same venue on 18-19 April.
