+EGO SPEED UP TEAM ENDS PRE-SEASON TESTING IN LOSAIL, QATAR
The third day on track at Losail concluded the last official test before the start of the Motorcycle World Championship in Qatar. They were three days of hard work for the + EGO Speed Up team in which Jorge Navarro and Fabio Di Giannantonio were able to continue the work started in the previous pre-season tests, measuring the potential of the Speed Up SF19T bikes on a circuit different from those tested so far.
Navarro confirmed the good results of the last test in Jerez obtaining his best lap in 1’58.923 in the last session after continuous progress. At the end of the three days, he is seventh by less than five tenths from the first.
Even the rookie Di Giannantonio finished the last pre-season test with a smile showing huge improvements and an increasing feeling with the bike and with the team. He got nineteenth position in the 3-day combined ranking in 1’59.407 by four tenths from the top ten.
Jorge Navarro#9: “I’m happy cause in these three days of testing we worked a lot on the bike and we also focused on my driving improving every day. We have tried many solutions and even if we have not yet found the set-up with which I feel completely at ease, we managed to make a good lap and above all to find a consistent rhythm. We are ready for the first race and we cannot wait to get back on track!
Fabio Di Giannantonio#21:“Three really positive days of testing. We are closer to the first thanks to the progress we made sin each session after several changes and tests in which we understood the direction to take. I like the bike more and more, I’m adapting a lot to riding a moto2 and so we are satisfied with the steps taken so far. Obviously, we are a bit ‘far from the first, but we are not too worried because we have all the time and the desire to improve!”
