Guillaume Moreau rounds off his season at Motorland Aragon
Guillaume Moreau continued to develop the SG Formula/KMP Group's car in preparation for the 2010 season during the last weekend of the World Series by Renault on the Motorland Aragon circuit.
After Portimao, the Formula Renault 3.5 Series drivers had their first outing on the spanking new Motorland Aragon layout. In blazing sunlight all weekend Guillaume Moreau got down to the task of improving the SG Formula/KMP Group's car. The opening sessions enabled him to get to know the track and fine-tune his car's setup.
During Saturday's qualifying session the Frenchman who was still in learning mode was quick, and only just missed out on the SuperPole. But Guillaume shone in race 1. "I made a great start and I overtook several cars," he says.
"Unfortunately, a setup problem slightly handicapped us. The rest of the race was fairly tricky and we finished nineteenth. As our car was getting better all the time we could have scored points; it's a shame."
On Sunday, in front of over 80 000 spectators race 2 unfolded in much the same fashion and ended in an eighteenth-place finish. "Once again I got away without problems but we had a few balance issues that penalised us", Moreau continues. If the weekend didn't produce a big haul of points it enabled the team to continue developing the car in view of next year. Guillaume came on board during the season, and for his first year with the SG Signature/KMP Group team his performance was perfectly in keeping with what his employers expected from him, and he also managed to score a podium finish during his third meeting.
"With hindsight, for sure I managed to help the team progress. That was my mission when I was hired and I think I fulfilled it. This week we're going to continue with a three-day test session on the Motorland Aragon circuit. The team wants me to stay on to continue to help it gather more experience. We're going to test various things to get to know the car better."
After a fruitful collaboration with the SG Signature/KMP Group squad this year, Guillaume will orient his career towards endurance in 2010 and he wants to race in the Le Mans 24 Hours again. "I'm going to set up an endurance programme with my partners who will help me in my campaign for a drive at Le Mans. I've raced in this event in the last three years. I'm still fairly young and my experience should be enough to help me catch the attention of teams," he explains.
After racing in GT, Guillaume is looking for a new challenge while still keeping an eye open for a single-seater drive. "I'd like to join a good prototype team; that's my priority. But I wouldn't say no to another season in single-seaters. If an opportunity arises with my present team, I wouldn't be against, even if endurance is still my main aim," he sums up.
