Facu Regalia going fast in the dry

Facu Regalia was the sixth fastest in the second day of the Formula BMW Europe test at Barcelona, after a journey in which he was recovered from the gastroenteritis that he felt yesterday.

The Hispanic-Argentinean driver completed the second day of testing without unpleasant surprises, though he still had some pains from the problems that he suffered Sunday. "I still have some headaches, but I'm much better than I was yesterday", said the eighteen years old driver.

Today, the drivers found in the track to completely different situations: dry in the morning and wet in the afternoon. With slick tires he showed a very strong pace which left him confident after the morning session. "I was the third fastest for a long time and, besides, when I was doing my best lap the team told me to get in the pits, so I couldn't show my full potential. Later the track improved and some other drivers bettered their times and I fell to the sixth place", underlined Facu Regalia at the midday.

In the beginning of the afternoon the heavens opened and soaked the Circuit de Catalunya and the drivers and teams had to change their cars set-ups. In these conditions, Facu Regalia wasn't as happy. "In the wet I wasn't very comfortable. Probably, we didn't find the right balance, but we start to work in the car in these conditions, which may be useful in the future", said the young gun that will be this season at the wheel of a Eifelland Racing singleseater.

After the Barcelona tests, Facu Regalia will be at Silverstone at April 6th and 7th, for another Formula BMW Europe test session.
