Laverty: "We have made quite a lot of progress"

Laverty: 'We have made quite a lot of progress'

Drive M7 Aspar’s Eugene Laverty continued his progression on the RC213V-RS at Sepang and is happy with his progress.

Laverty managed to record a 2’01.815 on the final day,after a late change to his front suspension improved the Irish rider's feeling with the bike significantly.

Eugene Laverty 2.01.815 (61 laps): “We didn't manage to improve the lap time as much today as we had hoped but we have made progress with the setup of the bike. Today we completed a long run on used tyres which was very useful to measure our performance. We also learned quite a lot about the performance of the bike over long distance and our pace and lap times were consistent. At the end of the day when the conditions were a little better we made a change to the front suspension which helped us to take another step forward. It was good to finish the test on a positive. The results of this second test here at Sepang give us cause for optimism. We have made quite a lot of progress, we still have a lot of work ahead but every time I ride the bike I feel that we are more prepared and I'm looking forward now to travelling to Qatar and continuing to work."
