High hopes following pre-season testing


Preparations for the 2019 Radical SR1 Cup are well under way with the first Pre Season test complete at Snetterton. Scoprio Motorsport's Will Hunt completed over 70 laps during the course of the day and managing to beat his qualification time from the 2018 season by a healthy margin.

​"The Overall feeling in the car was great today. We made some adjustments to setup in the morning and also begun experimenting different driving techniques. We had a very clear track for running over the course of the day thanks to the arrangements by Radical and the Snetterton Circuit organisers allowing us to do some clear running."

​Donington Park on the 26th March provided the final chance for Will to finalise any adjustments to the #21 Scorpio Motorsport SR1. The day concluded with a combined test lap total of over 100 laps and plenty of information for the team to revise ahead of the 20th April for the first round of the Championship.

"Our testing programme this year has been fantastic. I have been able to maximise my time in the car looking at driving technique and adjusting the car to suit. I'm feeling really confident going to Oulton in April and know there is still a lot to do so I will be back in the gym training and also continuing my simulator work in the build up to make sure that I am absolutely in the best possible place ahead of lights out."
