1 Mins read

Lando Norris continued his impressive start to his Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series programme as he set the quickest time on day one of the final pre-season test at Motorland Aragon on Thursday.

The 2015 MSA Formula champion edged out fellow Briton Harrison Scott, with the Josef Kaufmann Racing driver beating the AVF driver by just 0.047s having already set the pace during the first test at Paul Ricard last month.

Scott had led the morning session with a time of 1m56.704s, but the afternoon’s running was the quicker session, and it was Norris who set the pace with a 1m55.860s.

Behind the two Britons was Frenchman Dorian Boccolacci, with the Tech 1 Racing driver quick in both sessions, ending the day just 0.156s off the ultimate pace.

Henrique Chaves made it two AVF entries inside the top four, but was 0.421s back, with another Frenchman Julien Falchero rounding out the top five for R-Ace GP, a further 0.031s back on the Portuguese driver.

Jehan Daruvala was sixth in the second Josef Kaufmann Racing entry, ahead of the third of Robert Shwartzman, with 2015 BRDC F4 champion Will Palmer eighth for R-Ace GP, while Tech 1 Racing’s Hugo de Sadeleer and Sacha Fenestraz completed the top ten.

One of the championship favourites Max Defourny did not take part in Thursday’s running, with the talented Belgian complaining of neck pain.
