De Angelis completes MotoGP™ test for Forward

De Angelis completes MotoGP™ test for Forward

The Moto2 rider tested some new updates on his team's CRT machine in a test at the Vairano di Vidigulfo circuit.

The NGM Mobile Forward Racing team completed a test on its CRT MotoGP bike at the Vairano di Vidigulfo circuit this week, with Moto2 rider Alex de Angelis working on a new version of the Suter-BMW machine's electronics system.

With Colin Edwards overseas and preparing for the back-to-back Jerez and Estoril Grands Prix, De Angelis stepped up to run the developments, some of which will be used by Edwards at Jerez. Poor weather did affect the amount that was able to be accomplished, but De Angelis was pleased with what was achieved.

"I am very happy to have been considered by the team, Suter and BMW to participate in this test to develop the CRT bike. The test has been shortened due to the bad weather conditions, and we have not been able to do many kilometres, but nevertheless it has been very exciting to ride a 1000cc bike. We have worked on the development of the electronics of the bike, which we do not do in Moto2."

De Angelis added: "I hope I have been able to provide the right feedback to the team, Suter and BMW, in order for them to develop the bike in the right direction. I would like to thank the team for this opportunity. I remain at their disposal to collaborate in future tests."
