Strachan has strong BMW test

Picton's Malcolm Strachan keeps on proving his versatility behind the wheel, this time driving his fourth different type of car of the season to complete 100 laps of testing at Shannonville Motorsport Park on the weekend.

Strachan was in the cockpit of a BMW powered Formula car which was provided by Jenson Motorsports. Strachan, a second-year Mechanical Engineering student at Queen's University, was testing as a possible lead up to driving a Formula Atlantic car at the Molson Indy Races in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

The Konica Minolta driver learned new techniques quickly and was posting some serious lap times by his second session.

By the end of the day, Strachan had not only made a smooth transition to the Formula cars, but proved to be very competitive as shown by the information provided by the data acquisition equipment.

The multi-championship driver will likely be testing south of the boarder in the new year.
