Sept.16 – The Gloucestershire countryside echoed to the sound of V8 power today as Force India arrived at Kemble airfield to carry out its final aero test of the year
Force India evaluated its latest aero package in advance of next week’s Singapore GP. With the race drivers otherwise engaged, the team called on the services of GP2 racer, Max Chilton, who agreed to step in and help out.
The Silverstone based team was able to make the most of ideal situation for its final aerodynamics run of 2011, with Warm and sunny weather in Gloucestershire.
“Today’s programme at Kemble was our fourth full-size aerodynamic test of the season. We use these days to collect data that helps us understand if the car is performing as the wind tunnel says it should. Oliver Knighton, Race Support Engineer says via Force India’s website.
“We were able to record the important aero data, which we will analyse over the next few days. Id’ like to say a special ‘thank you’ to Max, who enjoyed his first taste of a Formula One car today. He prepared himself very well and adapted quickly to the procedures and systems on the car, all of which allowed us to make good progress with the programme.”
