Postat av Johan Meissner kl 21:28


Colin Turkington impressed by being the fastest BMW driver during the STCC test at Falkenberg today, despite the fact that he never before has seen the track. The Flash Engineering driver was fifth fastest overall.
”I am pleased with the day, especially as this was my first ever laps here. We have improved the car during the session and ended the day strongly,” said Turkington.

The times were traditionally very close at the Falkenberg track, team mate Jan ”Flash” Nilsson was just 19 thousands of a second behind at eighth overall.
”It has been a rewarding day and I like the way the car handles here. But there is more to work on in the setup, we are going to change the gear ratio among other things,” said ”Flash”.

The both BMW drivers completed more than 200 laps during the test day and Turkington is looking forward to the qualifying of tomorrow.
”It is all about tomorrow and we need to find some pace on the drivers ahead. The qualifying is going to be tough, it is extremely close on this track and we are going to have to fight hard,” said Turkington.
