Wout Poels and Lieuwe Westra testing

Last month the Vacansoleil-DCM team touched down in France with Aero Concept Engineering on the racetrack at Magny-Cours for two days of intense wind tunnel testing.

Wout Poels, Lieuwe Westra, Gustav Larsson and Thomas de Gendt logged a total twenty hours of crucial testing between them and believed they had come away with a number of improvements for the season ahead.

In this video, Poels, Westra and team director Jean-Paul van Poppel all explain the merits of wind tunnel testing and some of the lessons learnt.
