Fresh from inking an agreement that will see him move up to the International Class next year Menasheh Idafar continued his programme of testing, taking the Dallara F310 to Oulton Park in Cheshire.

The two day test included running in both wet and dry conditions around the undulating course allowing Idafar and the T-Sport squad to work though the set-up for the car as well as helping the 19-year-old gain more experience ahead of the step up to the premier class in British Formula Three.

“Both days have been really good for me but today was amazing,” said Menasheh, who ended the tests – unofficially of course – with the fastest times. “We've made fantastic progress with the car, I feel really comfortable now as we've tried a lot of things and we're getting the set-up how we want it.”

“We've been consistent and quick both days so I'm really pleased. Perhaps the most important thing was for it to be completely dry today, we tried stuff we've never tried before and found some things which really work well.”
