Pata Honda concludes 2013 programme

The Pata Honda Team has completed its riding programme for 2013, concluding with a three-day test at Jerez in Spain which finished yesterday evening. World Superbike riders Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam went to Jerez on the back of a successful test at Aragon two weeks ago and concentrated on refining the power delivery of their CBR1000RR Fireblade machines.
Jonathan Rea: “After a positive test at Aragon, I really struggled here at Jerez. It`s hard to put a finger on our problems but I feel that the character of our engine is quite aggressive and that makes the lap difficult here! We have a few new strategies to implement at our next test in January, which should help. I completed over 200 laps here so now I`m really looking forward to the winter break. I hope to come back in January to make some more progress with the CBR. Happy holidays, folks!!”

Leon Haslam: “I`m actually quite glad that 2013 is over now and we can look forward to a fresh start in 2014. The last three days have been pretty hard but necessary, and while we haven`t progressed as much as we would have liked, we know what we need to do. I`m confident that when new parts arrive next year we can make the step that`s needed. I`m looking forward to a few weeks off now and getting back to full fitness so that I`m raring to go in January.”
