Nakano's tests on Brno circuit have had positive results The San Carlo Team Honda Gresini has completed today the second and final day of testing on the circuit of Brno: on the track fell only Shinya Nakano, flanked yesterday by fellow teammate Alex De Angelis. The Japanese made the most of two sunny days to accumulate experience in the saddle the new Honda RC212V, foreshadowing the motion satellite 2009 version, which debuted in the weekend Grand Prix of Czech Republic.

After 67 laps covered yesterday, Shinya has travelled today also 27 rounds, making it the fifth fastest on the track with a best time of 1'57 "559.

#56 Shinya Nakano (27 giri - 1'57''559):

"Today we were able to take forward the work of refining the set-up of the new RC212V, which still do not know in depth. Both yesterday that today the dry track allowed me to take increasingly comfortable with the bike here in Brno Sunday I made a good race, but it must be said that we had not even had time to adapt better to this motion to my driving style. The objective of these tests was to find a more suitable for our needs, and we have succeeded: everything went as planned, without hitches. In the final I then played test rubbers together with Bridgestone technicians, trying two new types of coverages. Today I completed less laps because after the weekend race and the first day of testing fatigue began to be felt, but apart from that I am very happy and confident for the next race, at Misano! "
