Barberá concludes the Jerez test

Barberá concludes the Jerez test

The Valencian had been riding the Ducati Desmosedici for two days. Now he will stop until February when he will reappear in the Sepang test.

On Friday Héctor Barberá completed his second day of testing the handlebars of the Aspar Team’s Ducati Desmosedici at the Jerez circuit.

The new Aspar rider carried out two runs of ten laps each, alternating each exit between motorbikes configured in a different way. In the afternoon he completed five more turns and finished off his work with a best time of 1’41.7, less than 2 seconds off the record he established in this season’s Gran Premio de España.

"Today has been a day of very complete work. We have centred our efforts in doing tests with the motorbike and the traction control. We have not pursued the times, more we were seeking a good line of work. At the end of the day I have given 20 good laps and I am happy. The results are not excellent but I feel that we are on the right road" said the newcomer to the premier category.

The next time that the new Aspar rider will ride the Desmosedici again will be in the month of February next year, in the scheduled test in Malaysia.

“Now I am going to prepare myself very well, to return to Sepang at one hundred percent. I think that one of the keys of the season will be to strengthen the physical form during the winter months” said the Valencian rider.
