After the rain in Navarra, sunny weather aided the test on Sunday and for most of Monday.

“We were able to complete a lot of laps in the dry," said Marc Basseng.

"I had enough time to adapt my driving to the SEAT. We worked with different set up solutions to evaluate the best combination for the car and my style.

"SEAT Sport had sent Jordi Gene to help us with his enormous experience in the WTCC car. We managed to simulate qualification runs and races and the results were quite satisfactory."

Rene Muennich added: “The Track is a real challenge for the drivers, with its combination of ultra quick corners, hard braking and slow speed corners.

"We worked in different direction with the set up in order to have range of possibilities for all kind of conditions. I´m still learning, but I’m quite happy with the results I achieved so far."

Now the team are heading back to their workshop in Germany, where they will get more familiar with the preparation of the car before the next test.
