Cars were on display in the pit lane garages, were given slow laps behind a camera car, and were later permitted to take to the track for 20 minute test sessions.
The track was cold and damp and greasy from not much activity over winter. Not good enough for any setup work, but good enough to serve as a shake down and to sort out the niggles that can waste significant amounts of expensive track time on a more cruicial test day.
Representing Monoposto were:-
- Tony Bishop & Robbie Watts
- Henry Fryer
- Jim Timms
- Eddie Guest
- Jason Timms
Additionally Simon Davey and MotoMono racer Dax Ward (MD of 2012 title sponsor St. Cross Electronics) were on stage during the press conference talking about Monoposto Racing Club in front of journalists and photographers.
