James Nash tested his Bamboo Engineering Chevrolet Cruze for the first time this week at Rockingham Motor Speedway.
While conditions were wet that did little to dampen his mood and his first impressions were positive: “Great day at Rockingham today, car feels great,” he reported via social networking site, Twitter
Nash's team-mate, Alex MacDowall was also present at the test and drove the sister car in similar conditions.
Both Bamboo Engineering cars appeared at the test in their new blue, grey and white livery.
The team will now test again on Monday at Pembrey in South Wales and will be hoping for dry conditions.
