Team Ducati Astare complete intensive two day-test at Misano

Team SBK Ducati Alstare was on track at Misano both yesterday and two days ago with its riders Carlos Checa and Ayrton Badovini for a two-day test session.

Warm and sunny conditions allowed the team to work consistently on Wednesday, while yesterday a rain shower in the early afternoon kept the riders confined to the garage for a couple of hours. Over the two-day period the two Ducati Alstare men were able to complete roughly 150 laps each, recording some interesting times in the process. With work focusing mainly on weight distribution on the bike, riding position, the anti-wheelie system and general set-up, the riders and their technicians are satisfied with the results seen in this week`s testing.

Carlos Checa: “We`ve worked on set-up, my position on the bike, also working to improve some small things with the suspension, the position of the fork etc. I think we`ve worked well but we`ll only see the results once we get to Moscow. I hope we have a good base and that when we arrive in Russia we`ll be able to make small adjustments that will allow me to ride as I have here, and to the best of my ability. I`m very pleased that my shoulder hasn`t really given me any trouble, despite having completed about 1400km on the bike between Imola and Misano, so I hope that chapter is finally closed.”

Ayrton Badovini: “The tests have been positive. Unfortunately we lost some time today due to rain but, apart from that, we`ve worked well and have enjoyed two constructive days. We`ve tried some interesting things, working on the distribution of weight on the bike and with the shock. In the end we found a setting that I like and we confirmed a few things that we`d tried in Imola. I`m happy, though a little tired having ridden on six of the last seven days – I`m heading home now for a bit of a rest!”
