Virgin fires up Cosworth

Virgin Racing has become the first of the four new Formula One teams to fire-up the new Cosworth CA2010 engine, when it started the car on Saturday evening.

The Nick Worth CFD designed car will have it's unveiling in an online launch this coming Wednesday, and will then conduct a shakedown test at Silverstone on Thursday and Friday.

Technical director Nick Worth said, "I'm really happy to have done the fire-up checks and to have reached this new milestone in our schedule as planned. I must say the VR-01 is looking quite a neat package. We all look forward to seeing the car on-track for the first time next Thursday."
