Defending Formula Renault champion (Asian and China championships) Rodolfo Avila completed the first (of a series) of tests in a Carlin Motorsport F3 Dallara Mugen-Honda. Held last week for two consecutive days at the 2.3 kilometre Pembrey Circuit in South Wales, the test was considered highly successful despite the wet and cold weather condition.

Flying-in a fortnight ago to acclimatize himself with the car and the team, the test is rumoured to be used to evaluate possibilities aimed at enhancing his motorsport career.

"The car is very impressive. There is so much power and grip! G forces are much higher so clocking in respectable times was quite an interesting challenge for me", commented Avila. "Carlin Motorsport is fantastic and everyone was really helpful in settling me in. They are the perfect team to have a first Formula 3 test with and I can't wait to get out again".

The 17-year old Macau-based champion is set to return to Pembrey on August 24 and 25 to do more tests together with Carlin Motorsport.
