Alex Barros will get the chance to ride his new Birdgestone-shod Ducati Desmosedici GP07 at Jerez on the 28th to 30th of November, bringing forward his first contact with the 800cc bike.

"I am very happy because I will be able to ride the 800cc before our next scheduled test, which was scheduled to be in January at Sepang. we can begin to work on the general set-up of the racebike, and to further develop the bike without any delay, compared to some of the other teams. I am feeling very good with my new team and I am sure we will continue working well together. Finally, I have to thank Ducati for accelerating their timetable and providing Pramac d'Antin with the brand new machine much sooner than we thought possible!" said Barros about the welcome move.
