Egor Orudzhev topped the opening World Series Formula V8 3.5 Collective Test session at a hot Motorland Aragon on Friday, but it was Rene Binder who set the fastest time of the day in the second session.
Just eleven cars took to the Spanish track on Friday, with Teo Martin Motorsport fielding only one car for Konstantin Tereschenko, but series veteran Orudzhev hit the ground running with a best time of 1:42.808s in the morning session, with the SMP Racing by AVF driver 0.110 seconds faster than Lotus’ Pietro Fittipaldi.
Alfonso Celis Jr ended the session in third for Fortec Motorsports, a further 0.061 seconds down, while Orudzhev’s team-mate Matevos Isaakyan and RP Motorsport’s Yu Kanamaru completed the top five ahead of Diego Menchaca.
The opening session was halted midway through the session to retrieve the stranded car of Binder, who stopped in the second sector after a spin into the gravel trap, but the Austrian recovered to hit the top in the second session with a lap of 1:42.441s.
The Lotus driver was 0.194 seconds faster than RP Motorsport’s Roy Nissany, while Fittipaldi ended up third ahead of Damiano Fioravanti, Celis Jr and Kanamaru.
