Vierge: “I aim to go one step further next year”

Xavi Vierge is heading into the 2016 Moto2™ season full of confidence after two days of private testing in Valencia.

Tech3 Racing Team rider Xavi Vierge concluded the last track appearance of 2015 ahead of the winter test ban, with a firm run to 10th today at the Ricardo Tormo circuit. After completing the Jerez outing last week, Vierge continued his preseason work and completed 156 laps in the two-day test at Valencia, the scene of his double victory in the CEV Moto2 championship last weekend.

The 18 year old mainly focused on the new KYB suspension, which the Tech3 team will use in 2016, and he thoroughly tested various different aspects with the outcome being positive. The Spaniard will now look to carry on making further progress in the new year when the testing resumes.

Xavi Vierge: “I am very happy with the work that we have undertaken during these two days of testing at Valencia and we can leave the circuit feeling positive and excited for next season. The Tech3 team worked really hard and we sampled a lot of new settings in preparation for the upcoming year. However, now it’s time to recharge the batteries so that we can start the 2016 season on fire and be strong as soon as the wheels turn. I’m already looking forward to jumping back on the bike and I must say thank you very much to the sponsors and all of the team for their great efforts in 2015, and I aim to go one step further next year.”
