Team AON happy with iberian tests

The Team Aon spent a few days testing between Guadix (Spain) and Estoril. Tom Chilton and James Nash took turns at the wheel of the team’s two Ford Focus cars, one in British Touring Car Championship specs and the other a brand new WTCC machine.

“So far everything is going well as we had planned,” team principal Mike Earle said to Eurosport TV crew. “Our aim for this first WTCC season is to gain experience; we expect to be competitive next year and fight for the world title in three years. I think we have a great potential, especially because we may count on two young and fast drivers like Tom and James. I’m sure they won’t have problems in learning the tracks they don’t know. It will be more difficult for the team because of the lack of data. However, we haven’t ruled out the possibility to add a third car during the season.”
