First test on the Dome
Busy weeks for Henri Pescarolo’s crew… While the Pescarolo 01 was being prepped for its shipment to Sebring, half of the team was completing the shakedown of the Dome S 102.5 on the Chateauroux airport.
For the first contact between the green men and the Japanese prototype, Nicolas Minassian was in charge of debugging any potential problem and checking that the new Judd 3,4 L was running correctly.
Nicolas Minassian: “Everything went fine. The shakedown session lasted from 11 A.M to 4 .PM . We went through all our test program without any trouble and there is a good chemistry between the Dome engineers and the Pescarolo Team. We even had extra time to gather interesting aerodynamic data. Now, we are impatient to receive the new bodywork for 2012.”
A two-day test session will be held in Spain on the Navarra track, starting April 3rd.
