Rossi and Hayden set for GP12 debut in Jerez

Rossi and Hayden set for GP12 debut in Jerez

Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden will make their debut with the 2012-spec Desmosedici GP12 this week at the Jerez circuit.

Having carried out the first “shakedown” at Jerez de la Frontera on Thursday with positive results, Franco Battaini and Vittoriano Guareschi will leave the bike in the hands of Ducati Team factory rider Valentino Rossi, who returns to the Andalusian circuit five days after having competed there in the Spanish Grand Prix. Saturday will be the turn of Rossi’s teammate, Nicky Hayden, who returns to Spain following a promotional appearance in Germany.


While the development of the GP11 proceeds at full speed according to the directions of the Test Team and Battaini, Rossi and Hayden will be supported by a structure comprising engineers and mechanics from the factory team, with Technical Director Filippo Preziosi overseeing the operation as usual.
