Pons Racing Just Shy Of The Top Ten On Day 3 Of Alcaniz Testing

As the first collective test of the F.Renault 3.5 season drew to a close today in AlcaƱiz, Pons Racing kept progressing with both Tom Dillman and Meindert Van Buuren despite having to cope with two sessions that were heavily disrupted by changeable weather. Rain started falling on the Motorland Aragon venue around 11 AM, and at that time neither of the two drivers had still tried a run on new rubber as the team's work schedule was focused on other tasks. Apart from preventing them from running on fresh tyres, rain also hampered the team's other plans, as the morning session was virtually cut short by 90 minutes due to that unexpected shower.

Trying to make the most of every situation as usual, in the afternoon the team took advantage of the damp track to test a few different setup solutions for wet conditions, collecting useful data. Long runs, anyway, were just not possible because the session was red-flagged an astounding seven times. Still Dillmann managed to impress topping the sheets in both wet and moist conditions. Then in the last hour, when the track dried up, he was quick too and closed the session just shy of the top ten.

On the team's other car, Dutchman Meindert Van Buuren had another positive day behind the wheel, focusing as planned on putting as much mileage as possible under his belt. In that respect, having the opportunity to lap on a wet track was a welcome surprise, as it gave Meindert the chance to learn more of the car's reaction in treacherous track conditions.
