CLICK HERE for the morning results from the first day of Formula 3.5 V8 testing in Aragon
Tom Dillmann was fastest during the morning session on day two of the Formula 3.5 V8 test from Motorland, Aragon.
It was a mixed run for the Frenchman whose two consecutive fastest laps before his new AVF challenger twice stopped on track at turn 16, prompting a red flag and brief halt to proceedings. However, Dillmann regained composure at the helm of his AVF challenger topple Jake Hughes in the closing seconds.
Strakka Racing's Hughes subsequently settled for second, separating long-time leader Alfonso Celis Jr from his AVF stable mate. Celis Jr, currently the only driver confirmed for the 2016 season, was seven tenths-of-a-second behind the leader with Arden Motorsport's Kevin Jorg, fourth.
Former Koiranen GP team mates Hughes and fifth-placed Jack Aitken were once again partnered together at Strakka Racing. This is the latter's third team since post-season testing began in October having previously sampled the Arden Motorsport and Fortec Motorsports models. The reigning Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup champion was two tenths faster than Arden prodigy Egor Orudzhev.
Daniël de Jong was back in action for the first time since his season-ending crash at the GP2 round in Belgium this year. De Jong was a Formula Renault 3.5 series regular in 2011 with Comtec while still a teenager but sampled the higher-downforce car for the first time this morning, ultimately greeting the chequered flag seventh overall.
One time leader Yu Kanamaru set his fastest time on the last lap in the closing momenths for eighth, completing the top ten with FR2.0 NEC champion Louis Deletraz and Vladimir Atoev. Meanwhile, highly-regarded Columbian Tatiana Calderon made her début with Pons Racing 14th, one place higher than 2015 series regular Roy Nissany in the Tech 1 Racing model.
