British F3 In-Season Testing (Snetterton, May 13th)

Felipe Nasr topped a British F3 pre-race weekend test at Snetterton yesterday.

The Carlin runner registered a best lap of 1:39.542 on the revised “300” circuit, giving him a 0.348 advantage over teammate Rupert Svendsen-Cook.
Both Nasr and Svendsen-Cook were the only drivers to break the 100 second barrier during the day, with Fortec’s William Buller finishing the day 3rd, only a few hundredths long of the 1 minute 40 second mark.

Double R’s Pipo Derani displayed his intent with a best of 1:40.096, giving him 4th on the timesheets; several thousandths ahead of Formula 3 veteran Hywel Lloyd (Sino Vision).
Kevin Magnussen took 6th by the end of the day. The Dane has had something of a difficult start to season – he will be hoping for some solid results from Norfolk this weekend.
As will Pietro Fantin. The Hitech pilot headed a small group – including Carlos Huertas (8th, Carlin), Harry Tincknell (9th, Fortec) and Scott Pye (10th, Double R) – split by less than one-tenth of a second.

Bart Hylkema was once again the quicker of the Rookie Class duo. The T-Sport driver had some help when his sole rival, Kotaru Sakurai, crashed during the afternoon session.
