Was nice to join the others guys on track and see more our potential .... Every time more confident and belief in the project ... Onit ????????— Sam Lowes (@SamLowes11) July 19, 2016
Aprilia Racing Team Gresini rider Lowes took to the track on the first day of the two-day test at the Red Bull Ring – Spielberg before he joins the team in MotoGP™ for the 2017 season. The British rider spent the test not only getting acquainted with the new track, but also with his RS-GP bike. His team did not run a transponder during the test, so did not record a time, but left happy with his overall pace.
Sam Lowes: “After the first contact in Misano, I'm beginning to feel more and more at ease astride the RS-GP. It is a positive trend. I improved every time I went out and we began to work on the bike setup to adapt it to my riding style. We have more tests scheduled with Aprilia, but at the moment I am pleased with the level we have achieved. The track is very nice. There are some tight corners and flowing sections. Overall it's fun. It isn't very difficult to learn; you just have to remember the right reference points on the blind corners. Let's just say that, after riding the RS-GP, the straight stretches will seem even longer with the Moto2 bike!”
