The first day of Lucky Strike B.A.R Honda's current four-day test in Valencia got underway on Tuesday with Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson on driving duty. Anthony is driving the 007-01 chassis with Takuma in the brand new 007-02 chassis for what will be his first serious run in the 2005 car.

Takuma completed his installation programme and then ran through some general set-up work for a total of 41 laps in the morning session. He had a productive afternoon and although the windy conditions made it difficult to run any consistent lap times, he supplied useful reliability data on the new car. Takuma completed a total of 85 laps during the day, setting the fifth fastest time of a 1m 11.844s.

Anthony also completed some early set-up work in the morning session as well as running through a chassis weight distribution test to complete 51 laps. Anthony's afternoon running, though, was interrupted with an engine problem during his second run of the session. He completed a further 16 laps after the engine was changed, totalling 77 laps for the day.
