Avintia Blusens to unveil new carbon Inmotec chassis at Jerez

Thursday, 26 April 2012

MotoGP™ CRT entry Avintia Blusens has chosen the Gran Premio bwin De España to unveil its latest CRT venture in the form of a part-carbon chassis from Spanish engineering firm Inmotec.

The team, which has so-far run its BQR-FTR chassis, will introduce one BQR-Inmotec chassis on Iván Silva´s side of the garage for him to evaluate over the weekend. He will utlise both bikes in the pre-race sessions, before evaluating which is most suited for the race. Team mate Yonny Hernandez will stick with the BQR-FTR bike for now.

Team Manager Raul Romero confirmed that this was the next step in the racing team´s CRT project: "We are working closely with Inmotec to evaluate the new bike. For us it is an evolution of our project, which we believe will keep improving. Iván will evaluate the BQR-FTR and the BQR-Inmotec simultaneously, after which the Saturday afternoon session will decide what bike will be used in the race."

If successful, Romero has stated that Silva could have two BQR-Inmotec bikes to work with very soon, yet not before the test being held in Estoril after the Portuguese round.

Back in 2009, Inmotec had already released its first MotoGP™ prototype labeled the GP1 10. Since then it has evolved into its current twin-beam part-carbon part-aluminium construction, which Inmotec will no-doubt hope can prove a worthy contender further down the line.
