This initial part of the car’s test and development programme took place with the engineering team driving the car over four days, primarily on tarmac, but also including several kilometres on loose surfaces and Prodrive’s low grip facility.The car will now travel to Portugal for a week of testing on gravel.
“As with any totally new car, it is vital to take time to ensure all the systems are working as intended before embarking on a week long gravel test,” said David Lapworth, Prodrive technical director.
This first test car is running with an interim body and aero package, while design of the final World Rally Car bodywork is underway.
