Emilio Alzamora to test this weekend at Montmeló

Former 125cc World Champion Emilio Alzamora is set for a behind-closed-doors test this weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya, where he will run through a series of technical innovations introduced to his Derbi machine by Olivier Liegeois and the Derbi Racing Development team. The Belgian reported positive results from the latest updates on the factory test bench as they look to return to the battle for the minor category Grand Prix title they came so close to winning in recent seasons with Youichi Ui. Meanwhile, Alzamora´s young team-mate Jorge Lorenzo will ride in the Spanish Championship at Jarama.

`We will have a lot of time available to to test the latest solutions which have come out of DRD,´ said Alzamora, who won the title with Honda in 1999 but has struggled to even score points this season. `The team is working very hard and I am also keen to get out of this difficult situation as soon as possible. This test will be important because it is at the Circuit de Catalunya and the problems we had there at the last race are still fresh. I hope to find some material which gives me confidence and helps me to get as high up as possible ´.
