The Spanish-based team took part with its three drivers Hunter Yeany, Pepe Martí and David Vidales at the wheel of Dallara F3 machinery at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, which will host the third round of the season in May. They all carried out qualifying and race simulations throughout the two days of testing.

Further adrift, Yeany and Martí posted lap times of 1m33.365s and 1m33.758s respectively.

Vidales clocked a lap time of 1m34.605s and Yeany scored a best lap of 1m35.259s to his name.

Saturday morning was expected to be a quick session in times terms and everything went according to plan.
