Emilio de Villota Motorsport’s Yu Kanamaru was fastest on the opening day of the EuroFormula Open season opener at Jerez after setting the fastest time in each of the three free practice sessions.

The Japanese racer, who remained with the team after securing a handful of podium finishes in 2014, was quickest in the opening session, which turned out to be the quickest of the three for as drivers used new tyres for the first time.

His lap of 1m37.236s was 0.190s faster than Russian Konstantin Tereschenko of Campos Racing, another series returnee for 2015, as the top ten drivers were all within one second of one another.

Brazilian debutant Vitor Baptista was third fastest overall for reigning Teams’ champions RP Motorsport, ahead of Yarin Stern of Team West-Tec F3, while Polish driver Igor Walilko rounded out the top five in a second RP Motorsport machine.

A third, albeit running under the MKTG banner this season, was sixth fastest in the hands on John Simonyan, ahead of Italian Alex Rovera of DAV Racing and Tanart Sathienthirakul of Team West-Tec F3.

Damiano Fioravanti and Andres Saravia completed the top ten, meaning four of RP Motorsport’s five entries were inside the top ten.
