I.S.R. RACING CLOSES THE 2016 SEASON WITH A SUCCESSFUL TEST AT PAUL RICARD.
17/12/2016 - I.S.R. racing was the team chosen by Audi Sport to be on track at the final test of 2016 in France. Pirelli invited all the GT3 manufacturers to be present with one of its cars for the new tire generation test in preparation of season 2017.

After a long and very successful first season with the new Audi R8 LMS challenger, that secured three pole positions and a prestigious 2nd place in both the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup Pro-Am Teams and Drivers classifications, the Czech based team got back to action on the beautiful track located in the south of France.

A lot of work was carried out during the test, including full race and qualy simulations, which confirmed I.S.R. racing ambitions to be even stronger in 2017. The Czech outfit posted in fact the fastest lap time and produced very quick and much improved full race stints.

Performance improvements were strong and solid on the new Pirelli tires and allowed to the driver to quickly find a good feeling both in fast and twisty sections of the track. Filip Salaquada was behind the wheel and enjoyed driving on the new tires.

Filip Salaquarda:
"I am surprised by the positive feeling I had driving on the new 2017 Pirelli. The performance came easily both in qualy and race simulations, and every little adjustment made to the setup produced an immediate effect. I am really looking forward to start the new season. We will surely try to put on track all our determination to keep the momentum of such a great 2016".
