RYAN Lewis has just completed a two-day Formula Atlantic test at Sebring International Raceway, Florida, for Mi-Jack Conquest Racing.
The Royston racer, winner of the 2004 British F3 scholarship class, is testing the car with a view to racing for the team in the future.
"I really enjoyed testing with the Mi-Jack Conquest Racing Team, they did a great job", said Ryan. "The car was quick straight out of the box, it was competitive and well-balanced which made it easy for me to get up to speed quickly and find my comfort level in the car.
"The last car I drove (last December) was the old Atlantic car and this one is definitely a step up. I'm not sure what happens next but hopefully we can do a deal and I can race over here as it's great.

Conquest Racing co-owner, Eric Bachelart, oversaw Ryan's test. "Ryan did a great job during these last two days," he said. "He confirmed the potential we saw a few months ago when we tested him in the 014 car.
