The Valencia-based racing team headed to Southern Spain for preparing the European stage on the calendar. Hunter Yeany, David Vidales and Pepe Martí had a chance to run both in wet and dry conditions gathering valuable information for the upcoming rounds of the 2022 season.

Further adrift, American Yeany posted a best lap of 1m41.652s and Vidales stopped the clock with a personal best of 1m41.841s. As track conditions improved in the afternoon, lap times were significantly quicker.
