On Tuesday, VX Racing completed a two-day test program at the Spanish circuit of Albacete.
Good weather conditions enabled the team to run the Vectra for more than 600 miles and both drivers, Tom Chilton and Fabrizio Giovanardi, focused on race set-ups and long distance runs.

The team also collated important information about the handling of the new car.



VX Racing is now heading to Valencia for a final shake-down before the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season opener on 1 April 2007 at Brands Hatch.

"We're heading to Valencia now to make a few more tweaks and changes to get every last ounce of speed out of the car! I'm confident and feel really positive about the season, but it's going to be very close judging by the first official test at Rockingham last week."

"I am still as confident in the car as I was at the start and I am positive especially after the good test at Rockingham last week. I think we will be fighting for wins and the championship title straight from the beginning."
