Meritus Racing, IM Racing, Atlantic Racing Team, Eurasia Motorsport, Petronas Mofaz Racing and E-Rain Racing were all at Sepang International Circuit for a three day test that ended Wednesday, 9th February.


The teams brought with them a total of 17 drivers, including  a 13-year old Japanese driver, who is looking to compete in the 2012 season. He is being trained by former Formula BMW Asia driver, Ryuichi Nara with E-Rain Racing.

Teams spent the first day of testing mainly concentrating on shakedowns for newly acquired cars or letting their confirmed drivers acclimatise themselves. 

IM Racing had with them Malaysian driver, Chang Mun Shien who will continue to compete with them this season. Also seen with the team was Carlo Van Dam the 2008 Japanese Formula 3 Champion who was on hand to help with the team’s shakedown.

Atlantic Racing Team continued their session with recently confirmed driver, Jimmy Attunes. They will alternate test sessions between Sepang and Zhuhai International Circuit to give their driver a change of scenery and conditions. The team that helped groom Gabriel Chaves, was quick to point out the talent of their driver, his focus and determination coming into the start of the season.

Meritus Racing and Petronas Mofaz Racing were there with four drivers each, giving track time for potential and confirmed drivers. Both teams still have not confirmed their driver’s lineup for the 2011 Season and will be making their announcements at a later date.

Eurasia Motorsport were present at the test with four Nismo Development Drivers along with Nismo’s driver trainers to get some track time with the team. David Zhu, a former Formula BMW Asia driver was there as part of the Nismo program alongside three Japanese drivers. Natasha Seatter, who was with Petronas Mofaz Racing last year, was also at the test with Eurasia Motorsport.

The next scheduled 4-day test is planned for 28th Feb to March 3rd.
