BAR testing with two 007s



B·A·R Honda were in Valencia this week for a four-day test programme which saw two 007 cars running together for the first time. Takuma drove for all four days of the test in the brand new chassis 007-02, supported by Jenson and Anthony alternating the driving responsibilities in chassis 007-01. Although the extreme weather conditions made comparison of data difficult, it was an intensive test for the team as preparations continue for the new season.


"This week's test in Valencia has given the team the opportunity to run two 007 cars which is testament to the hard work that has been going on back at the factory," explained test team manager Andrew Alsworth. "Although the initial part of the test was completed under difficult track conditions, we were still able to work on various reliability issues. We completed the majority of the test programme covering a total of 2900 kms. We also ran through a comprehensive Michelin tyre evaluation although the variant conditions have made it difficult to asses any clear results. Honda have also been able to continue the development of the 2005 engine in readiness for the new regulations."
