NEC teams start pre-season testing at Valencia

Three teams of the Northern European Cup have started their season by participating in the two-day testing session in Valencia, Spain. On the 22nd and 23rd of February, MP Motorsport, Koiranen Bros and Krenek Motorsport put a total of six brand new Formula Renault 2.0 to the test during the first collective session organized by the EUROCUP.

The results of the two-day session showed a surprisingly fast time for Miki Weckstrom for Koiranen Bros. The young Finnish driver was the fastest of all present NEC drivers, setting a time of 1.32.896. Weckstrom took the sixth time in the overall result after two days of testing, just 0.02 of a second faster than Daniel de Jong, who has continued his contract with Dutch MP Motorsport for the 2010 season.

The place for Weckstrom is most of all surprising because Koiranen is re- entering the EUROCUP after driving the national series of NEC and Finland for the past few years. Other NEC teams MP Motorsport and Krenek have participated in EUROCUP of 2009 and have some more experience within this competitive field of European top teams. Next to the talent of Weckstrom to be able to test this fast, it proves that the arrival of the new Formula Renault 2.0 offers equal changes to all teams.

The three teams stay in Spain, because the next official testing session will again be organized by the EUROCUP, at the F1 track near Barcelona, Circuito de Catalunya on the 9th and 10th of March 2010. The first opportunity for the NEC teams to test in the frame of the series will be the 29th and 30th of March at the Hockenheimring in Germany.
