Jerez GP3 test: Jimmy Eriksson and Koiranen head final day
|Friday, April 11th 2014, 15:06 GMT|
Jimmy Eriksson finished on top of the times on the second and final day of GP3 testing at the Jerez circuit.
The Swedish Koiranen driver clocked a best time of 1m30.732s in the morning session, going over half a second quicker than what Thursday's pacesetter Nick Yelloly had managed.
Yelloly led the afternoon session, but all the fastest times were set in the morning as teams worked on race-orientated programmes later on.
Briton Alex Lynn continued with his strong pre-season, finishing in third place for Carlin ahead of team-mate Emil Bernstorff.
Robert Visoiu in the Arden car and ART's Dino Zamparelli completed the top five.
Trident's Victor Carbone caused the only stoppage in the morning session when he spun into the gravel. Santiago Urrutia also put his car on the gravel in the afternoon, triggering the second red flag of the day.
Pal Varhaug caused the third red flag when he stopped his Jenzer machine on track.
The GP3 field moves to Barcelona for the final test of the pre-season on April 16-17.
