Last day on track for MotoGP in Valencia today. The Pramac Racing Team had a chance to meet his new rider, Spaniard Hector Barbera, who will be riding its Desmosedici GP12 SAT next season. The technical changes were many, with the new bike available thanks to the work of Ducati. The day saw the Valencian rider record interesting lap times and this give good hopes for next season which will begin with the winter testing at Sepang in February. The Pramac Racing Team would like to thank all its partners and its fans for the season lived together with the wish of a successful 2012.

Hector Barbera - Pramac Racing Team

"These have been two days of work where we didn’t look for the fastest lap time, but we were looking to learn about the many innovations that Ducati has brought us on track. Sincere compliments to them as they did a great job. The bike is very powerful although there is still something to fix. We encountered a few problems but otherwise the bike is really competitive. The engine is fun, very different from the 800cc used until Sunday, and this I think may be a point in my favor as my style of riding. A pity that the last two hours available today we could not get on track because of a problem with the engine that I have felt on the track. Engineers are analyzing what has happened. We also had the opportunity to compare the new tires and also here, with some positive aspects, I think there's still a little work to do. The new one make the most in the first lap. The shoulder I have injured at the end of the season gives me a little pain, but does not affect my results on the track. I think this break will do me good to recover and be at the top for the next season!"
