Season opened with a test session in Mugello

Aku started his season with a Seat Ibiza Cupra Cup test session in sunny Mugello together with B.D Racing. There was a couple of months pause in racing and Aku has been concentrating more in studies for a while. Therefore it was very nice to do a test with the familiar Seat Ibiza Cup racer. And the lap times were very fast from the very beginning as Aku's best lap in the first stint was 2.12.1 with very old tires. During the next stints there were a lot of cars on the track and it was difficult to do a clean lap. However Aku was able to improve his time little by little and at the end of the day he ended up to 2.11.0 beeing clearly the fastest Seat Ibiza on track.

- It was nice to jump into a Seat after a while. The car was handling well and I did not have any difficulties during the day. The best time was quite ok, considering that we did not have new tires for my stints. Now it is time to finalize my program for this season. I hope we can publish everything soon, told Aku at the sunny paddock.

Aku's program for the coming season will be published next week.
