Ducati complete second day at Jerez

Ducati complete second day at Jerez

Vittoriano Guareschi and Franco Battaini put in a second day of testing on the Desmosedici GP11 at the Spanish circuit on Tuesday, with the third and final day’s work scheduled for Wednesday.

Vittoriano Guareschi and Franco Battaini completed the second day of a three-day Ducati MotoGP testing session at Jerez de la Frontera on Tuesday, lapping until the track closed since weather conditions made it pointless to ride prior to lunchtime. Guareschi completed 59 laps, while Battaini turned in 66.

“We started the test at 1pm since the morning was foggy, as usual,” said Guareschi, the Ducati Team Manager. “It was nice and sunny in the afternoon though, and we got in some good laps. I worked on the chassis, while ‘Batta’ continued with the electronics. Today I worked a lot on suspension, along with Öhlins technician Mike Norton, who looks after Valentino and who took advantage of this test to familiarise himself with working on the GP11. Franco is at a good point with his work dialling in the anti-wheelie control, so I’d say that for now, everything is proceeding according to plan.”
