GP2 driver, Jolyon Palmer, recently tested a Eurasia Formula Pilota car at the Sepang F1 Circuit to learn the circuit prior to the first round of the GP2 Series held at the track over the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix weekend. He shattered the Pilota lap record in the process. Palmer found the car an excellent tool in which to learn the circuit, demonstrating that the Pilota car is an ideal vehicle for a young driver to develop their talent. This was confirmed when he set fastest time in GP2 practice before qualifying 7th.

“As expected we were very impressed with Jolyon. Apart from being extremely fast he was also very professional and his feedback allowed us to further develop the car which will help us in this year’s championship” reported Eurasia’s Mark Goddard. “Setting fastest time in GP2 practice not only confirms his talent but also the benefit of running with Eurasia Motorsport.”

Palmer commented “It went very well, I learned a lot and I really enjoyed the experience and working with Eurasia”.

After qualifying 7th for the GP2 race at the Malaysian GP Palmer unfortunately stalled at the start of race one which put an end to his chances of a good race result.

Testing for this year’s F.Pilota championship continues in April at Zhuhai Circuit near Hong Kong. The team has one seat still vacant, drivers interested in competing should contact us now at
