The French circuit of Magny Cours was the scene of the tenth round of the World Supersports 2018, the second in this championship for Hector Barbera.
The weekend started on Friday with two free practice sessions. Hector had no technical problems (what had happened in Portimao) and then could use all the time to learn a new circuit and further adapted to his new bike. The fact that I have always trusted with Kawasaki and the championship Hector helped improve his lap times in the second session, which was nearly six tenths faster than in the first.
El primer fin de semana de Héctor Barberá en el Mundial de Supersports se concluyó con un décimo lugar, que deja el piloto un poco insatisfecho. De toda manera, el balance final es igualmente positivo, porque Héctor pudo aprender mucho sobre la Kawasaki y el nuevo campeonato donde compite y la información obtenida será muy útil en las carreras que vienen.
The Spanish joins the ranks of pilots and with Premier Helmets in the World Superbike Championship, Supersport 600, Supersport 300, in the British Superbike Championship and the Endurance Championship, where he won the title of World Champion Niccolò Canepa . Hector Barbera will participate in the last four races of the Supersport 600 World Championship at the factory Kawasaki Racing Team Puccetti.
Debut in World Supersport Hector Barbera approaches and increasingly Spanish first taste Kawasaki in Mugello and Imola, where he faced two days of testing with Puccetti Racing.
Estos dos días fueron fundamentales para Barberá, porque verificó el potencial de Kawasaki ZX-6R y trabajó con el equipo para encontrar una buena configuración. Tanto el equipo como el piloto están muy satisfechos con la forma en la prueba fue y las palabras de Héctor y Manuel Puccetti (Kawasaki Puccetti Team Manager) revelan la confianza y la motivación antes de la próxima ronda de Portimao (14 ° -16 ° de septiembre).
The Spanish rider Hector Barbera will join the Kawasaki Racing Team in WorldSSP Puccetti for the rest of the 2018 season, as a substitute five Kenan Sofuoglu time world champion, who recently retired.
In this last race the trend has been the same as all season and although the result has not been good, running in front of the fans in Valencia is impressive. I will miss the team, but he has not known me as a farewell or the end of something, but as a step change.
It was not the best qualifying of the year, but at least the first Desmosedici GP16 us, we are ahead of Bautista and Redding. Today we shot as winter testing, so we have no progress this year.
The day did not go as we expected, but we are close, as two tenths would enter inside the top 10. We have to improve a lot for the race, and on a weekend as special as this one in which we must do so all right.
