Joerg fastest at Alcaniz
2014 World Series by Renault officially got underway with the opening day of the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 collective testing. 33 drivers were on hand this Sunday at the Motorland Aragón circuit with Kevin Jörg (Josef Kaufmann Racing) setting the best time in 1:56.288.
Mathéo Tuscher (China BRT by JCS) was first to set a lap time, but Aurélien Panis (ART Junior Team) then Nyck de Vries (Koiranen GP) quickly took control. With nine minutes remaining, Matevos Isaakyan (AVF) lowered best time previously set by the Dutchman in 1:56.508. Alexander Albon (KTR) was third on the time sheets ahead of Jörg and Levin Amweg (ART Junior Team) at the end of a session that was interrupted on two occasions.
Matthew Graham (Manor MP Motorsport) dominated the afternoon session before being unseated by Nyck de Vries. As he did in the morning, Isaakyan went quicker, but the Koiranen GP driver countered. Shod with fresh tyres, Jörg moved to the top of the order with 23-minutes remaining in the session. And that is where he stayed, followed by Dennis Olsen (Prema Powerteam), Anthoine Hubert (Tech 1 Racing), Matt Parry (Fortec Motorsports) and Isaakyan at the end of the day.
Drivers and teams could test the new PFC Brakes that were supplied to them for the first time at the circuit that will host the opening round of the World Series by Renault.
