Hello from Atlanta,
We have completed three days of testing at Road Atlanta with good feelings.
Last year I competed for first time here. The ups and downs, fast corners with some proper banking make this track one of my favourites.
I felt very comfortable with the Nissan DeltaWing from the first lap. It takes time to adapt to the driving style that it requires. Comparing to lmp2 cars, the difference is remarkable. The way to brake, entering the corner … is totally different. With the DW is not good to trail brake to the apex, must brake 10 meters before and be on throttle earlier, this provides better stability and cornering grip. It is easy to say but hard to do, because I spent two years to improve my technique to be fast in LMP2.
The test has been very positive, working in different areas of the car. We have improved in reliability and lap times.
I am looking forward to get back on track in the pre-race test. We’ll bring some developed parts that will make us stronger!
