Proton Team KR target January track test

Development work at the Proton Team KR headquarters in Banbury, England, is running on schedule and the team are on course to test their new five-cylinder 990cc four-stroke machine at the end of January at Jerez in Spain. The team are working flat-out to produce the engine that they have both designed and built at their Oxfordshire base, and they hope to have it running by the end of this month before mounting it into the chassis and frame.

Team Owner Kenny Roberts, the three-times World 500cc Champion, has earmarked the scheduled tyre test at Jerez in the third week of January to run the complete machine for the first time, which is over two months before the first Grand Prix of the season at Suzuka in Japan on April 6.
