First exit on track for the 2007 season of the BMW Team Italy-Spain that has been involved yesterday and today in a two days long testing session held in Valencia. The BMW Team UK, the BMW Team Deutchland, SEAT Sport and Chevrolet were present at the "Ricardo Tormo" circuit as well. In yesterday session, Alessandro Zanardi completed 350 Km, obtaining a best performance of 1'45''0. The team carried on the work today with Felix Porteiro, that scored a best lap of 1'44''4, after concluding 330 Km.
"In Valencia we tested several new solutions and we were able to collect a considerable amount of data that will be analysed in the next days and that will turn out to be very useful in the development process of the car".
"The Valencia track is quite an atypical one: we tried several different technical solutions but the Spanish circuit does not allow a precise performance evaluation. We are looking forward for further testing sessions to have more meaningful indications. We actually had the chance to work two days with fairly good weather conditions and this allowed to set the bases for the development work that will be done in the next months".
