ROAL Motorsport and Tom Chilton had their first test with the Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1 car last week at Valencia. On Friday the Briton completed 32 laps of the Spanish circuit that equate to more than 120 kilometres.
I just want to say a thank you to RML Group for getting our car ready for this test. Over the two days it was a great chance for ROAL and RML to work together closely and learn more about the car. We had one or two teething problems to start with but nothing out of the ordinary when building a new race car. I'm really looking forward to getting more miles under my belt next week in Italy to prepare ourselves for what is going to be a very exciting year ahead with all the new regulations,” Chilton commented.
ROAL Motorsport principal Roberto Ravaglia added: “I am positive about the test although it did not last as long as we wanted because of minor technical issues. The car seems to be well balanced and, most important of all, the engine is very good. There is still a lot of work to do and time is very short. We will test again with Chilton at Adria, on Sunday and Monday, and on the same days Tom Coronel will shake down his own car.”
