Winter Testing

Postby mandzipop » Sun Jan 09, 2011 6:48 pm

FOFA will be (so far) attending at least 2 of the winter testing sessions.

Tony is off to Valencia and Mandzipop & Siberianlady will be attending Barcelona.

If anyone is attending any tests we'd love to know.

If you are attending either Valencia or Barcelona and you want to meet up, then you can either let us know here or if you want to be more discreet then we have set up email addresses and you can email us.

For Valencia it is valencia@fofassociation.com

For Barcelona it is barcelona@fofassociation.com

If anyone is attending (or planning to attend) either Jerez or Bahrain, it would be great if you could let us know. :D

3 mates and I will be there for the 1st day of the test, also emailled Tony and going to meet up around the lunch break.

Reading various reports on the web so far the line up for 1st Feb is:

Ferrari 2011 car - Alonso
McLaren Interim car
Williams 2011 car - Barrichello
Lotus Renault 2011 car
Team Lotus 2011 car
Sauber 2011 car - Kobayashi
Force India 2011 car
Toro Rosso 2011 car

Even with the wealth of new cars and their many system check/installation laps (you can probably also bank on one 2011 car being seen for a few laps and not be seen again all day) with Pirelli coming in I still think we'll see a lot of action.

Unfortunately just haven't enough holiday entitlement to enable me to stay out for more than the one day

IMT- firstly welcome to the forum. Not sure where Tony & Co will be but am sure you guys will have a great time!

As for Barcelona- they have now actually confirmed the dates but not the programme nor ticket prices yet as all the guff on their site still refers to 2010.
Will update as soon as the trakc updates its own website and post necessary links!
Keep Racing!

Been doing a bit more trawling through the web and seen the following mentioned for Valencia

Red Bull - 2011 car
Ferrari - 2011 car - Alonso (1st & 2nd, Massa 3rd)
McLaren - Interim car
Mercedes - no plan confirmed yet
Williams - 2011 car - Barrichello (1st & 2nd, Maldanno 2nd & 3rd)
Lotus Renault - 2011 car
Team Lotus - 2011 car
Sauber - 2011 car - Kobayashi (1st)
Force India - interim car
Toro Rosso - 2011 car
HRT - interim car (but will they actually show up)
Virgin - no details

Think we'll be going for the Boxes grandstand when we go, anyone any idea how much as taxi is from the airport to the circuit and if they'll be easy to pick up at the end?
