Lavilla rides Ducati GP06 at Valencia

One of the most interesting participants in the post-season media test was Gregorio Lavilla, third placed rider and former champion of the Bennetts British Superbike series. The Spaniard was on hand to ride two laps on the Ducati Desmosedici GP06, but warned that the short sojourn wasnt really a good marker of his ability.

I was going to test the bike at Mugello but there was a clash with BSB testing at Silverstone. Two laps here with the press bike, which has exactly the same settings and not even an adjusted seat, sows nothing, but it is a good opportunity for me to get on the bike at its last ever outing, said Lavilla, who also paid tribute to the BSB championship and looked back on his season.

Its a growing championship. All the big manufacturers are there and the weather makes it unpredictable. I was disappointed with how last year finished but Im looking forward to next season.
