After clouds and rain on the Paul Ricard High Tech Test Track last night, the teams and drivers had the chance to start their second testing day under bright and cold winter sunshine this morning. They continued the testing of Nissan and FRV6 chassis on the track solution 3C (3,841 Kms). As the day went on, the weather conditions became less sunny and finally the drivers ended the day on a slightly rainy track.

Robert Kubica, driving for Team EPSILON EUSKADI, was the fastest today, followed by Celso Miguez Jr of Team PONS RACING and Alvaro Parente of Team CARLIN MOTORSPORT.

French 2004 Formula Renault 2000 Champion, Patrick Pilet, while discovering the Paul Ricard HTTT, drove for the first time the FRV6 chassis of French Team DAMS.

Today's news was also for the team managers, the discovery of the brand new car of the coming World Series by Renault in 2005. In fact, Renault brought the FR V3.5 to the Paul Ricard HTTT. Without unveiling out any additional information on its performance, as it was exposed in one of the boxes to be looked at... The surprise is still to come!

For the man in charge of the organisation and management of the new series, Pierre Dieudonne, this second test day was " again an additional chance for the drivers as well as for the teams to meet and to look at each other's results... "

Tomorrow will be the third and last day of the FRV6 & Nissan winter test session at the Paul Ricard HTTT.
