Pesek taking things step-by-step in 250cc

Pesek taking things step-by-step in 250cc

After two quarter litre class tests following the final race of the season at Valencia, Lukas Pesek is getting to grips with the move up to 250cc machinery in a steady manner.

After two quarter litre class tests following the final race of the season at Valencia, Lukas Pesek is getting to grips with the move up to 250cc machinery in a steady manner.

The Czech rider had expressed his surprise with his physical condition having been up to standard in his opening test, and used said fitness to perform another extended run at Jerez on Wednesday.

Making the most of the afternoon after early track moisture had dried up, Pesek managed a fastest time of 1'45.236 on the final day; marginally quicker than Thomas Luthi, with whom he will share an Emmi - Caffe Latte Aprilia garage in 2008.

Despite some respectable lap times on his two Spanish visits, the 22 year-old is taking things in his stride at this early stage.

"I'm happy, but we have to go step-by-step. The first race is next year, so we'll try and do a good job over the winter," explained the rider who undertook nine 250cc races in 2003.

"I'm feeling good at the moment, but Jerez is a difficult track because the cornering is completely different with the 250cc machine. I'm happy to work with my new team; they are really professional and know exactly what they want to do."
