> TESTING DOWNPOUR
With the final rounds of both the State and National Formula Ford Series' coming up at Phillip Island, testing at the circuit will be key to success. Nothing beats time in the seat for the driver and track time for the team. SRE took part in an On Track Events private test day at the Phillip Island circuit on the 1st of September.
Throughout the week prior to the event the weather could not have been more ideal. Dry, sunny, and perfect for testing; however this all changed an hour before the first session. Once the rain started it was relentless for the remainder of the day. With our testing program for the day developed for dry conditions, the team had to think on their feet to adapt the program to the new conditions.
Throughout the day, Steve Courtis in the SRE Spectrum completed just over 200km of running. This will be valuable for the coming races towards the end of the year.
