The first Prototype Arrow was completed in October 2013 and an intensive testing program is planned before the 2014 racing season starts. Initial shakedown in January showed that the last 2 years design work has paid dividends. Even on a wet day the car had predictability and good balance, inspiring confidence. The all-round disk brakes with 4-pot calipers showed good stopping power and a sensitive pedal. All of this was completed on the new Yokohama soft track-day tyre AD08R which coped impeccably with standing water in the early part of the day.
