Duxford, UK 1st September 2010
The Imperial War Museum runway at Duxford played host to the youngest ever test driver in Formula One™ history today, with 16 year old Nabil Jeffri seeing his F1™ dream come true as he conducted a day of aero testing for Lotus Racing on the museum’s Cambridgeshire runway. Fairuz Fauzy and Heikki Kovalainen were both on hand to lend their advice to the young Malaysian and Nabil, a key member of the AirAsia ASEAN Driver Development programme, completed the day’s testing, and gave the team valuable pitstop practice throughout a busy day on track for the Anglo – Malaysian squad.
Group Lotus have produced a pretend F1 car. It costs approx one million USA dollars.

Motorsport University Malaysia could do with a couple of these!

If I'm making a wish list the Foggy Petronas bikes sitting in Basildon would be nice too.
Check out my previous post.
I have made it known that I am looking for funding for this project. I am available to head it up.
