MOTO2 – DANNY KENT AND FABIO QUARTARARO CONCLUDE THE SECOND OFFICIAL TEST OF MOTO2 CLASS AT JEREZ DE LA FRONTERA
Final day of testing on the Andalusian circuit of Jerez de la Frontera for Speed Up Racing Team. Fabio Quartararo and Danny Kent finish the second official test of the year respectively in eighteenth and twentieth position. The French rider scored his best time in 1’42.475 in session3 on the third day showing a growing progress in the 3 days (196 laps). Teammate Kent, with 147 laps in total, finished the test in 1’42.527.
Riders and technical staff have worked hard on the suspension and balance of the bikes to improve the setting of the Speed Up SF18. There have been little improvements, but there is still work to be done to find the optimal setting. The last 3 days of testing will therefore be of fundamental importance before the start of the 2018 Championship which will take place in Jerez de la Frontera on 6-7-8 March.
Danny Kent#52: “Honestly these 2 tests have been very difficult for me and the team. We have tried many solutions but the same problem keeps occurring. We are a little bit confused but I believe in my crew and my team. We will keep pushing 110% to solver this problema before Qatar!”
Fabio Quartararo#20: “They have been 3 challenging days in which we worked a lot on the setting of the bike. We found a problem with the rear shock that we will try to solve in the next official test in March. I am sure that once the setting is solved we will improve a lot!”
