27/11/15 Avintia Racing MotoGP - training MotoGP Jerez
The Avintia Racing team has completed two days of workouts in the Circuito de Jerez. A few weeks ago in Valencia, Héctor Barberá and Loris Baz, they premiered their Desmosedici GP14.2 Ducati and the new Michelin tires, in Jerez have had the opportunity to try for the first time unique electronics to all MotoGP pilots used in the 2016 season. For Barbera everything has gone to ask for mouth and in Jerez has become to find very comfortable with French tires, but above all highlighted the help of new electronics in the entrance and exit of the curves. The champion of the Open category has finished half a second of the fastest and with a very promising pace.

They have been two days that we have tested many new things and we have collected lots of information. Yesterday cost us to get to acceptable setting with electronics, but the afternoon was much better and we shot at a very good pace. Today have changed several things and touched us to go a little bit back, but at the end I finished the day rolling in 1'40 low which is very positive. In regards to the quick turn-around has not gone as I wanted to, but we have not focused on that, and Yes roll at a good pace, so thinking of a race I think we would be very strong. This electronics is better, is easier when you open gas and exhaust valve also helps to stop the bike at the entrance of the curves that turn more. It is early to talk about, but the rhythms here a super bike official facing our there may be half a second rate and that means everything will tighten much over the coming year. And when it comes to tires I am also very happy, in Valencia I had good sensations, but here on a track with another gripping I found even more comfortable with the front. The adaptation is still good and I think that I am of the few pilots who still has not been dropped. I try to go step by step, I am not taking risks and therefore neither I have become crazy looking for a lap. Now relax and prepare to stop when we return to action in Malaysia.
