Cortese: “I hit the rear wheel brake a little too hard”

Cortese: “I hit the rear wheel brake a little too hard”

Dynavolt Intact GP’s Sandro Cortese utilizes a long day of private testing despite a fall.

Fresh off finishing two days of testing in Valencia, the Dynavolt Intact GP team and a handful of others headed to Jerez to continue their off season programme. Unfortunately poor weather saw riders pit bound on Sunday, Monday the only day they were able to get out on track. With just a single day, Sandro Cortese was eager to work but a crash early in the afternoon interrupted his schedule. The German sustained no serious injuries in the fall and was able to complete 57 laps.

Sandro Cortese: “The test in Valencia was a lot more significant. Unfortunately we only had one day of testing here in Jerez. I slipped once, which cost us almost two hours in time. I hit the rear wheel brake a little too hard and crashed into turn 1 on a highside. A very untypical move, but luckily I wasn’t injured and was able to complete a few more laps afterwards. In the end we saw some good results and I remained confident. Even after the crash I was able to pick up on speed straight away, which leaves me positive. During the first official test all riders will ride on this track and it will be interesting to see where we stand."
