Spain, Oct. 19, 2012: The current World Series Renault championship leading team, Tech1, will evaluate the skills of American Conor Daly at the upcoming series test on October 24th in Barcelona, Spain. The WSR series will conduct a two-day test after the final rounds of the championship that take place this weekend at Circuit de Catalunya. Daly will spend the prior week with the team between their base in France and trackside with them for the final races.

It will be Daly's first taste of what many believe to be the fastest junior development car in Europe. The WSR championship draws large crowds all across Europe with races in locations such as Monte Carlo and Moscow, Russia. The 3.4L V8 engine produces 530 HP and is matched to a sophisticated aerodynamic package that includes a Formula One style Drag Reduction System rear rear wing (DRS).

"I am very much looking forward to the test because of what people have already told me about the car and how well it performs," said Daly. "In Hungary recently it was considerably faster than the GP2 car so it has to be mighty impressive to drive. I like the Barcelona circuit so its probably as good a place as any for me to learn a new car."

Daly finished 6th in this years GP3 championship with five podium finishes including a win in Barcelona in May.

Daly, the 2010 American Formula Star Mazda Champion, is sponsored by: VBrick Systems, Inc., Delavaco Capital Inc., Callcap, Merchant Services LTD, The College Network, PACE Electronics and Tom Lange Company with additional support from; St. Vincent Sports Performance, Alpinestars and Aspin Group.
