Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team concluded its final European pre-season test at the Circuito de Jerez, in Spain, today with Sylvain Guintoli and Alex Lowes both satisfied with the progress made with their YZF-R1’s.

Hampered by thick fog for the initial hours of both Tuesday and Wednesday’s track time, Lowes and Guintoli made the most of the subsequent good weather setting 102 and 116 laps respectively across the two days. The Frenchman set his fastest time of 1:41.018 on his penultimate revolution, his British teammate’s 1:41.361 laid down five laps from the close of play.

Evaluating a raft of new settings and parts, including swingarm, suspension, engine specifications and electronics, the Pata Yamaha team are confident of the advancements made and understandings gained throughout the past four days on track and will look to continue the progression back at its German and UK bases.

Lowes and Guintoli now have their sights firmly set on the start of the 2016 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, as the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team prepares to travel to Australia ready for the official championship test at Phillip Island on Monday 22nd February.
