Poor Conditions Affect The 2nd Day Of Jerez Test
Today wasn’t a fruitful day for the Pramac Racing Team on Jerez de la Frontera Circuit,in Spain. Cold wind and spots of rain slowed down the team’s work and especially for Hèctor was a frustrating affair, waited into the box, for a good turn of the weather. After a spell of heavy rain around at 3pm, the Green Team decided to see the benefits in accumulating laps, working in the electronic set-up and to getting acquainted between Hèctor and the track, with difficult conditions. Hèctor closed the 2nd day of MotoGp Test in Jerez, archieved a good 5th place,in 1.43.288.
Héctor Barberà - Pramac Racing Team Rider
"When I went out to try my Ducati, riding with wet condition, the track was already damp. We made some test to try the wet set-up, but unfortunately the weather changed quickly. The highlight spot was that today we spent our time to improve my confidence with these unexpected weather conditions. Today’s weather was the same as the 2011 race here, therefore the team’s work of the day was important, thinking about the new season. I also tryed the new chassis of my Ducati and, to be honest, it is better then the old one, bacause I can ride, maintaining a good line.”
Francesco Guidotti – Team Manager Pramac Racing –
“We had a lot of weather changes in the whole day,but we use they in a constructive way. We didn’t try the tyres, due to the quick change of weather conditions and we decided to keep the bike’s materials for the last day of this test,tomorrow. We also worked on some electronic’s strategies to adapt our Ducati in differents weather conditions,as today.”
