Avila completes second British F3 test

For the second time in a fortnight, Macau-based Asian champion Rodolfo Avila successfully completed his second test with leading British Formula 3 team Carlin Motorsport. A full programme had been laid out and both driver and the team saw improvements made over the course of the weekend held at the Pembrey Circuit in South Wales.

"Rodolfo did quite well considering his inexperience in an F3. The physical and mental requirement can be demanding and as he can attest, is far greater than his familiar Formula Renault 2000. He appeared to adapt readily" commented Carlin Motorsport's F3 team coordinator, Dave Lowe.

"I am pleased with how the sessions went. The team had been fantastic to work with and I've learned a huge amount from this experience. Completing about 120 problem-free laps is quite satisfying" commented the 17-year old on Carlin Motorsports and its F3 Dallara Mugen-Honda. "I will still need to work on my fitness", added the young Macanese star.

"It is evident that Rodolfo has built-up a strong foundation behind him. All he needs is more track time and improvement in his fitness skills", concluded Lowe.

Defending Formula Renault 2000 champion Rodolfo Avila is scheduled to fly back to Asia in preparation for China's first Formula 1 event in September 26 at the Shanghai International Circuit where the Asian FR series runs Round 9 as an F1-support race.

Another F3 test with Carlin Motorsports is in the offing and is currently being arranged to take place very soon.
