Team SBK Ducati Alstare concludes three-day test session at Jerez

Team SBK Ducati Alstare and its riders Carlos Checa and Ayrton Badovini have completed the first test session of the 2013 season, having collated some useful data despite the three day session having been reduced to little more than three hours of track time due to bad weather at the Jerez circuit in Spain.

Under the supervision of team manager Francis Battà and Ducati SBK project manager Ernesto Marinelli, the newly formed team were unable to complete much work on Saturday and Sunday due to the persistent rain and strong winds but made the most of Monday, in improved conditions, completing as much as possible in the half day available to them and collecting important information.

It was of course not possible to respect the original planned programme of work but the limited track time did allow the riders to build their confidence with the bike and provide some good feedback which will prove to be an extremely important starting point when it comes to the next tests in Australia.

The 1199 Panigale R bikes will now go back to Alstare`s racing department where work will continue in coming weeks. The SBK Ducati Alstare team is scheduled to return to the tracks on 14-15 February at Phillip Island, for more private testing.before the final official tests take place at the same circuit.
