Millroy impresses in F3 test.

Ollie Millroy produced an impressive performance at Donington Park after joining up with Spanish F3 outfit Team West-Tec for a day of testing.

The BMW Junior Development driver hit the track during an open test day and despite being forced to share the circuit with a wide range of machinery of differing speeds, was able to produce lap-times which impressed the team.

“Ollie was certainly very fast, but also impressive technically as well as very pleasant to have around,” team boss John Miller said. “He certainly made a very positive impact on all of the crew, which I think is vital.

“We would really want to sign a driver who can lead the team in 2009 and Ollie could just be that driver.”

Millroy himself, currently preparing for the Formula BMW World Final in Mexico, said he was delighted with how the test day had gone as he continues to evaluate his options for 2009.

"What a great day I had at work," he said. "I really enjoyed driving the F3 car and felt at home in it almost immediately. I just got quicker and quicker every session and by the end of the day I felt very comfortable with the car and whenever I could get a clear lap I put in a quick time. The team and I worked well together, they were a good and professional bunch of guys and by the end of the day we were all more than happy with the way it went.

"No decision has been made on what I will be doing next year, but I felt very much at home with the F3 car so it has to be an option, providing I can get in enough pre-championship testing and the right budget to place me with a top team."
