BRANDS HATCH TEST DAY LAUNCHES BTCC 2019

NEW 3 SERIES LOOKING FAST ON DEBUT TEST

Team BMW have completed two successful test days with the new BMW 3 Series ahead of the season opener next weekend.  Turning the wheels for the first time on Tuesday, all three cars ran problem free, gathering plenty of data to trawl in preparation of Brands Hatch next weekend.

COLIN TURKINGTON

“We’ve covered a considerable amount of ground over the past two days familiarising ourselves with the new 3 series and getting comfortable.  The key has been to get an understanding of how the car responds to changes and we’ve been able to narrow the window of performance.

Straight out of the box the car feels stable and strong in the fast corners, but there is still a lot of work to do.

There are just ten days left before the 2019 British Touring Car Championship kicks off on the 6th and 7th April.

The important thing from here is to take what we learn today and complete a thorough analysis of the test programmes from the three cars.  This should speed up the learning process so that we can arrive at Brands next week with a good base setup.”

Watch all the action live and exclusive on ITV4 and ITV.com from next weekend!
