Exclusive footage of the Proton Team KR and KTM test

Proton Team KR completed their first public test using the KTM V4 prototype engine in a hybrid chassis at Estoril last Monday.

The British-based team owned and run by former 500cc World Champion Kenny Roberts are in negotiations with the Austrian factory over a possible link-up for the 2005 MotoGP World Championship and, after two days of encouraging development work in Portugal, the move looks to be a step closer.

Nobuatsu Aoki completed over nine hours of testing with the new bike on the Portuguese track, lapping almost as fast as his race pace from the Grande Premio Marlboro de Portugal just a day earlier to the delight of both Proton Team KR and KTM.

In this exclusive feature, subscribers can watch footage of Aoki on track and listen to the thoughts of Proton Team KR owner Kenny Roberts and KTM Technical Director Harald Bartol. Simply click the link at the top of the page.
