Surprised with Crees being right at the sharp end in the speed traps. That VW is no slouch in a straight line.

Thats the problem when you opt to miss a year, im surprised they havent been trying to run the car in other series to keep the development up and save the team getting rusty.


I hope they do come back but I honestly think with that car they are done

Not seen that rumour.

In Feb, it was confirmed by Austin and HMS that their plans for 2019 were:
- Run a test programme with the Alfa.
- Run Alex Day in TCT with the Audi.
- Run A.N.Other in TCT with the Toyota (if someone came forward).

I knew their name was connected with TCT, just wasn’t sure if it was with the Alfa or not

No reason they couldnt have run in it aside from funds, are they running with sponsors on the car today?

Or don't feel they will gain much for the amount of money it would cost. Much better to let someone else pay for the test and if the team get some good data and set up out of it, the driver hasn't spent any of his budget needlessly.

I wonder how disappointed Moffat is at the pace of the Q50. Maybe tomorrow will be more indicative. But it doesn't look great as a straight out of the box package.

I expect it will be a lot better tomorrow. Last thing they would want to do is to damage it on the 1st day of a 2 day test when there is so much to learn about it. It was so far off the pace they were probably just testing systems etc.

Alfa improved a lot with the afternoon running

He said it was only a shakedown today, so I expect more to come!

Chilton on top, that is encouraging and shows that there is still plenty to play for

Interesting comment from Austin that they had no new tyres to run on yesterday for the Alfa so were using very old ones.

Yes I thought that, I thought this was a "tyre test"

Incidentally anyone know what the deal with Max Coates only getting 1 lap in all day was?

The way I read it was that they chose to run on old tyres (presumably to get their eye in again) before running new tyres today?
