WTCC: buoni risultati per la Chevrolet nei test di Estoril
The Chevrolet team completed a three-day test with the new Cruze at the Estoril''s racetrack.
It has been another positive step forward for the new car in view of its race debut in Curitiba. Nicola Larini was fully satisfied with the work achieved, despite changeable weather condition: ''''In three days we have experienced everything: sunshine, rain, hale and fog! This has somehow affected our programme, but on the other hand allowed us to test the car in all track conditions and to complete some reliability tests as well. There have been no major hiccups and we were able to gather very useful information,'''' he said.
On the technical side, work focused on testing different suspension configurations and the new X-trac gearbox. The Chevrolet Cruze will continue its testing program in Valencia early February, with Larini and Alain Menu, before embarking the long journey to Brazil.
