Webb and Moncayo in good shape after Jerez

Tuesday, 30 March 2010

The Andalucia Cajasol riders have been learning from one another throughout pre-season, as the British rider imparts his relative experience to his Spanish rookie team-mate.

A final chance for the preparation of the Aprilia machines that Danny Webb and Alberto Moncayo will ride for the Andalucia Cajasol team this season was taken at the Jerez circuit, where the duo finished their on-track work on Monday before the season starts in Qatar in just over a week.

Both riders recorded impressive times and World Championship newcomer Moncayo placed one position higher on the final timesheet than Webb, as the pair placed just inside the top ten times. Indeed, Moncayo was the highest placing rookie of the Jerez Test, underlining his potential.

The pair are learning a great deal from one another, as team chief Pedro Machado explained. “I am sure Danny will be a major reference for Moncayo when we go to circuits he doesn’t know,” he said. “Between the two there is a very good understanding, they get along and help one another.”

Machado continued: “We leave Jerez very happy with the results. We’ve confirmed that our expectations can be better than we thought at the start of the year, and we’re achieving results that are getting some attention. Alberto is recording times that are close to two seconds faster than those that could be expected from a rookie.”

Moncayo, who rode four wild card entries last year, was the 2009 Spanish National 125cc Champion and enters his first full campaign in 2010 alongside Webb, who embarks on his fourth World Championship season.
