Posted on February 4, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Despite the innovational thought for an online presentation of the new car of Virgin Racing team which is sponsored by Cyprus based online forex operator FXPro, the possibility for a live streaming show was canceled due to technical difficulties. However, the team posted some technical information regarding the car and some photos of the new VR-01.
The team who was originally named Manor was renamed to Virgin after Sir Richard Branson got involved. The team who has developed the aerodynamics of the car using the Computational Fluid Dynamics technique which is in reality very similar to the wind tunnel but only less expensive.
It is well mentioned that Virgin was one of the first teams that announced its racing driver line up very early at the beginning of December with a team of high flying Timo Glock who had an excellent year with Toyota and rookie Lucas di Grassi.
The team is expected to be on the Silverstone circuit today where they will perform the initial shakedown tests as well as the evaluation of car parts and on-board electronic systems. Team’s principal John Booth stated that this is their first scheduled test as they new that will not be ready in time for the Valencia tests that held a few days ago. He expressed his excitment for the overall progress of the program and now is waiting for the track feedback data.
The Virgin car was designed by Nick Wirth who stated that the first aim was to create a reliable car. He is waiting to see how the car will perform in real conditions and he stated that the team has a long term plan in order to make forward progress each year. On the other hand, Sir Branson stated that no matter what the first test results will show, putting together an entire racing team should still be considered as a major achievement regardless of the results. He also stated that he is eager to watch how the team will perform on the second official test that will held at Jerez in a couple of weeks where the majority of the Formula 1 teams will be present.
