KTM continue testing at Le Mans

Test rider Mika Kallio was joined by factory riders Pol Espargaro and Johann Zarco

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing have just completed a two-day test at Le Mans with Pol Espargaro, Johann Zarco and test rider Mika Kallio all getting out on track. It comes off the back of Espargaro acheiving the factory's best qualifying result, fifth, and dry race result, eighth, at the Grand Prix of the Americas.

Dani Pedrosa, signed to the Austrian factory following his retirement at the end of the 2018 MotoGP™ World Championship, is still continuing his rehabilitation from collarbone surgery but the Spaniard is edging ever closer to full fitness.

KTM currently have concessions meaning they have no development restrictions, plus they can test with their factory riders throughout the season which allowed Espargaro and Zarco to be present on Wednesday, the second day of testing. Although the weather wasn’t ideal, it’s understood they were satisfied with their work in France.

Both the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and Red Bull KTM Tech 3 squads will be hoping to continue their tremendous start to the 2019 MotoGP™ World Championship at the upcoming Gran Premio Red Bull de España.
