Misano Test A Positive Step For KRT Riders Sykes And Rea

160621_109

After a successful race weekend for the KRT squad at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli both Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea took to the 2.226km track again for an official one-day test on their Ninja ZX-10R machines. They finished 1-2 in the time sheets, with Sykes setting the best lap of 1’34.674 and Rea a 1’34.777, each using race tyres.

The KRT technical crews had to work at high intensity towards the end of the day as heavy overnight rains had reduced the available track time, leaving behind a wet surface until the late morning. Sykes posted 76 laps in total with Rea putting in 51.

The test was also an opportunity to test some new Pirelli race tyres, with both riders pleased with the performance of the new solutions, as well as the improvements made to their race machine set-up.

Developments to take the official Kawasaki WorldSBK team into the final five rounds of the season were the main focus as far as machine set-up and components were concerned today. Sykes even dipped under the existing lap record with his quickest time, despite the lack of qualifying tyres and the wet track conditions that started the day.

With the test complete the team will now pack their flight cases to head to the next round of the championship, at Laguna Seca in the United States, to be held between 8th and 10th July.
