With the brand new ACCELERATION motorsport concept scheduled to hit the limelight next season, Felix was called up to join the two-day test by his former outfit Performance Racing, helping the Silverstone-based squad to evaluate a potential future entry into the series.
Despite the FA1 car sporting a 550-bhp engine to give it more than twice the power of a Formula 3 machine, Felix wasted no time in acclimatising to the new challenge, going fastest in each of the sessions he undertook (excluding an early outing devoted exclusively to a sequence of installation laps) to eventually end up 0.6 seconds ahead of second-placed World Series by Renault regular Oliver Webb.
The test took place in chilly conditions, with temperatures never reaching above 5 degrees Celsius.
Performance Racing also ran a second car for John Bryant-Meisner, who ended up third fastest. To find out more about the ACCELERATION platform scheduled to see the light of day in 2014, please click here.
