Press Release 07 / 2018

18th April 2018



For the last official test days before the start of the racing season the GP3 Series teams met on 17th and 18th April 2018 at the Catalunya Circuit near Barcelona (E). Both days provided pleasantly warm weather.

The first morning’s results looked very promising for Jenzer Motorsport. Tatiana claimed an excellent 2nd place, Juan Manuel was a splendid 4th and David was not far behind in a beautiful 7th place.
The afternoon was spent running racing distances and testing set-ups and at the end of the afternoon David was 8th, Tatiana 12th and Juan Manuel 16th.

We used the second morning to carry out a qualifying session simulation as usual. After her fastest lap Tatiana knew that she had been too careful and could have achieved a much faster time, but it was enough to put her in 7th place. David and Juan Manuel took 14th and 15th places respectively, with both of them seeming rather nervous, and getting caught up in traffic.

In the afternoon everyone put in the best effort they could to show what they are capable of. Tatiana shone with the fastest time of the session and stayed on top of the times until shortly before the end of the session when another driver snatched her first place away. However, Tatiana had performed spectacularly well again and finished in a great 2nd place! Juan Manuel achieved a top result as well with 4th place, and David finished the day in an equally excellent 6th. All our drivers have clearly shown that they are a force to be reckoned with!
