Formula car FEST08 was taken for the first test drive in this season and was raced against Lotus Elise by journalists from the car magazine Autoleht.
Driving events, held on two consecutive weekends in may, served as season openers for FS Team Tallinn. For the first time since the car was last driven seven months ago, all the members of the team were offered a chance to take the racer for a spin. Driving just for fun is followed by other events with more serious agenda during forthcoming weeks – namely a test day for making the driver choice for the new season and the first tests with the new formula car FEST09, which is currently in the phase of assembling.
Journalists from the Estonian car magazine Autoleht also attended the event held in May 24th and tested the formula car against Lotus Elise S in standard tests such as acceleration, braking, slalom and the so-called moose test. Test result, one of the best Autoleht has measured during their 10-year existance, will be published in July 3rd.
