Kubica quickest as World Series car unveiled.

Despite clouds and rain overnight at Paul Ricard, the teams and drivers assembled for day two of the combined Nissan World Series/Formula Renault V6 group test had the chance to start their day under bright and cold winter sunshine.

The combination of FNissan and FRV6 chassis provided some stiff competition on track, as teams evaluated possible contenders for next year's World Series by Renault, which brings together the best of both worlds in a single series.

As the day went on, the weather conditions became less sunny and finally the ended with a slightly damp track, but that did not appear to faze F3 Euroseries graduate
Robert Kubica who, driving for World Series regular Epsilon Euskadi, proved fastest of those on track. The Pole was followed by Celso Miguez Jr, driving with Nissan champion Pons Racing, and Alvaro Parente, who continued his good form with Carlin Motorsport, with whom he would have been familiar after running in British F3 this year.

Among the off-track high points was the unveiling of next year's definitive World Series by Renault machine which, until now, has only been glimpsed from private testing shots released by the French manufacturer. The car did not take to the track during the group test, however, but still managed to attract attention as it sat in one of the few vacant pit garages.
