Elías ups pace as home GP kicks off

Elías ups pace as home GP kicks off

The LCR Honda rider was satisfied with his performance on the opening day of the Gran Premi Aperol de Catalunya.

LCR Honda rider Toni Elias wants to continue his progression aboard the RC212V and Friday’s first run out at his ‘home’ track started with a positive feeling. Elías set the 11th fastest time of the day and will test the 2011 updated chassis in Saturday’s second day of practice.

Toni Elías:
“I feel satisfied about my performance today because in these conditions I could have been the last one again but we improved our feeling and this makes me happy. Our plan was to improve our base set up of Le Mans including the chassis and suspension regulations to compare all the data with the new chassis we are using tomorrow. I think we had a positive start to the weekend and aim to continue in this way especially at my home race in front of my fans.”
