Valencia Test Day 1: Tamas Pal Kiss (Zele Racing) Sets New Auto GP Record

It was Tamas Pal Kiss, running for Zele Racing, to top the timesheets in the first day of preseason testing for the 2014 Auto GP at Valencia. The Hungarian also set a new series record for the Coloni-prepared car at the venue, setting a personal fastest laptime of 1'21"480. He ended up being two seconds per lap quicker than the previous mark, set by Adrian Quaife-Hobbs in 2012 (1'23"480). Kiss was followed by Kimiya Sato (Euronova Racing) and Kevin Giovesi. The Italian showed an impressive pace and proved the value of the collaboration between Puma 3 M-Sport and Ivone Pinton's Eurotech.

Sam Dejonghe and Virtuosi UK went fourth fastest. The Belgian quickly adapted to an highly-powerful car (550hp) like the Auto GP one and showed great pace. Andrea Roda was off to a good start too. He ended up in third place during the AM session behind Super Nova International's Michela Cerruti and Sato.

The 2013 championship-winning team's roster also featured Markus Pommer and Gianmarco Raimondo. "I felt really well-suited with this car - said the German - The team worked well and I'm confident we will be able to set some good marks tomorrow. Today I had a small issue with the pedals during my fastest lap, but we showed some great potentialā€¯.

Canadian racer Raimondo went on-track in the closing part of the day for a shakedown to prepare for tomorrow's run. A last-minute entry was Salvatore Deplano, on the MLR71 by Euronova car. Yoshitaka Kuroda will also be running tomorrow, replacing Sato.
