Phoenix American Motorsports driver Preston Calvert took some time to detail the first test day for the Porsche GT3 Cup car.
The day went well, with the car performing well out of the crate. We learned a bit about setup for the Pirelli slick tire we will use in the GT Cup series. The team quickly learned the specific procedures required by the Cup car for things like wheel changes, using the onboard air jacking system, bleeding the brake system, and many other nuances. All in all, it was a very successful test day. We will likely be back on track with the car the next time on the Test Day prior to the first Pirelli World Challenge event at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) on 3/5/15.
