2016 Round 0 - Pre-Season Testing @ Catalunya

Post by W1lhoit on Sun Apr 17, 2016 4:09 pm

Before we begin the 2016 Season of Formula X, we would like to explain the preseason test results. Day one was in the Medium Compound tires. Day two was in the rain, and the third and final day is in the brand new Ultra Soft Tires that determine whether or not the Ultra Softs will be utilized this year. With that said, onto the results of Preseason Testing.


DAY I
Day one was an interesting day, as we had anticipated Aric Silverfox, Diago Power's test driver, to reach the top of the leaderboards. Unfortunately, he did not achieve it, as Brave Fast Racing's Eduardo Santos took the top spot. Meanwhile, Subaru had a very rough start as the Medium Compounds were too cold, and the car had a number of tire punctures. Troy Gooding shocked the world in the underpowered American United as he places the car in P10, a very promising start for the AUR team.
Day I Results:

1. Brave Fast Racing (Eduardo Santos (BRA) 1:19.895)
2. RavenWest Motors (Rebecca Davies (GBR) 1:20.086)
3. AudiSport (Delma Fanucci (ITA) 1:20.158)
4. Diago Power Racing (Aric Silverfox (GER) 1:20.260)
5. Lafitte Formula Racing (Roma Favalli (ITA) 1:20.270)
6. Red Bull Racing (Slavko Bukošek (SLO) 1:20.375)
7. Harachi Racing Technologies (Hiroki Kazi (JPN) 1:20.409)
8. Stuttgart United Mercedes (Benjamin Bachmeier (GER) 1:20.430)
9. SkullCandy Ferrari (Viktor Karlsson (SWE) 1:20.676)
10. American United Racing (Troy Gooding (USA) 1:20.795)
11. Volkswagen Motorsport (Kevin Rasmussen (DEN) 1:20.878)
12. Crow Motorsports (Jack Hamilton (GBR) 1:20.895)
13. Panasonic Toyota (Kyoko Miyama (JPN) 1:20.931)
14. Troll Science Formula X (Michael Curtin (USA) 1:20.933)
15. Subaru Racing Team (Jun Hosokawa (JPN) 1:21.356)
16. Master Card Lola (Kim Hansen (GRN) 1:22.702)

Day II
On day two, RavenWest's Rebecca Davies, obliterated the field in the rain session. Aric Silverfox was showing a lot of speed down the straightaway, but lacked so much grip in the corners. Regardless, he finished second. Hiroki Kazi has proven that power is not the key to winning, as he places third on the charts in the Honda-powered Harachi. Despite the issues Volkswagen's been having with their engines, Rasmussen did outpace Jack Hamilton's Mercedes powered Crow Motorsports machine. With 5 minutes to go in the session, Hansen lost it in the first corner, and stalls the Master Card Lola in the sand.
Day II Results:

1. RavenWest Motors (Rebecca Davies (GBR) 1:37.550)
2. Diago Power Racing (Aric Silverfox (GER) 1:37.797)
3. Harachi Racing Technologies (Hiroki Kazi (JPN) 1:37.831)
4. Brave Fast Racing (Eduardo Santos (BRA) 1:37.860)
5. AudiSport (Delma Fanucci (ITA) 1:37.921)
6. Red Bull Racing (Slavko Bukošek (SLO) 1:37.922)
7. Lafitte Formula Racing (Roma Favalli (ITA) 1:38.009)
8. SkullCandy Ferrari (Viktor Karlsson (SWE) 1:38.057)
9. Stuttgart United Mercedes (Benjamin Bachmeier (GER) 1:38.192)
10. American United Racing (Troy Gooding (USA) 1:38.264)
11. Volkswagen Motorsport (Kevin Rasmussen (DEN) 1:38.363)
12. Crow Motorsports (Jack Hamilton (GBR) 1:38.434)
13. Panasonic Toyota (Kyoko Miyama (JPN) 1:38.505)
14. Troll Science Formula X (Michael Curtin (USA) 1:38.542)
15. Subaru Racing Team (Jun Hosokawa (JPN) 1:38.793)
16. Master Card Lola (Kim Hansen (GRN) 1:39.622)

DAY III
RavenWest once again proves to be the better team, as Davies takes the top of the leaderboard in the Ultra Soft Compound Session. Troy Gooding's American United Racing vehichle suffers several tire problems as the car keeps tightening up in the corners, thus dropping AUR outside the top ten in this session.
Day III Results:
1. RavenWest Motors (Rebecca Davies (GBR) 1:19.517)
2. Red Bull Racing (Slavko Bukošek (SLO) 1:19.782)
3. Diago Power Racing (Aric Silverfox (GER) 1:19.936)
4. Brave Fast Racing (Eduardo Santos (BRA) 1:20.062)
5. AudiSport (Delma Fanucci (ITA) 1:20.128)
6. SkullCandy Ferrari (Viktor Karlsson (SWE) 1:20.134)
7. Harachi Racing Technologies (Hiroki Kazi (JPN) 1:20.270)
8. Stuttgart United Mercedes (Benjamin Bachmeier (GER) 1:20.279)
9. Lafitte Formula Racing (Roma Favalli (ITA) 1:20.320)
10. Panasonic Toyota (Kyoko Miyama (JPN) 1:20.663)
11. American United Racing (Troy Gooding (USA) 1:20.676)
12. Volkswagen Motorsport (Kevin Rasmussen (DEN) 1:20.723)
13. Troll Science Formula X (Michael Curtin (USA) 1:20.829)
14. Crow Motorsports (Jack Hamilton (GBR) 1:20.917)
15. Subaru Racing Team (Jun Hosokawa (JPN) 1:21.077)
16. Master Card Lola (Kim Hansen (GRN) 1:22.285)

Conclusion
Considering the potential problems that the Ultra Softs might give, Formula X Officials have decided to deny the idea of Ultra Soft tires being apart of the 2016 season, as it could reminisce the disasterous 2012 Season, when tire explosions was a huge problem throughout that year. Above all, we should anticipate a very competitive year in Formula X and we will see you in Canberra.
