Abraham satisfied with Test outcome

Abraham satisfied with Test outcome

The Cardion AB Motoracing rider put in two solid days of work at the Official MotoGP Test at Valencia and is now looking forward to a deserved winter break.

Karel Abraham’s debut season in the premier class of the MotoGP World Championship came to a conclusion at the Official Test at Valencia on Wednesday, where the Cardion AB Motoracing rider finished the second day seventh fastest with a best time of 1’33.433.

Searching for a suitable set-up on the new Ducati Desmosedici GP12, the 21 year-old completed 72 laps and was 1.626s off fastest rider Dani Pedrosa.

Karel Abraham:
“During the first few laps we solved most of the problems we had and then we tried many things and focused on the set-up of the motorcycle. I’m quite satisfied with the result of the Test, but I think I could have set an even better lap time. I spent most of the time on track in the morning and then I was quite tired in the afternoon, but I’m happy with the way I ended my first season in the premier class and now I’m looking forward to winter break.”
