Moto3™ one day Red Bull Ring test

Lower category teams remain in Austria for testing

Highlights: Moto3™ one-day test in Austria

After the buzz of the Austrian GP has subsided somewhat, the track action was still ongoing as the Red Bull Ring hosted an official one day test for Moto2™ and Moto3™. Present from Moto3™ were Sky Racing Team VR46, Estrella Galicia 0,0, Peugeot MC Saxoprint, Red Bull KTM Ajo, RBA Racing Team, Gresini Racing Moto3 and PULL&BEAR Aspar Mahindra.

With the morning proving the only useful dry track time after the rain set in towards the afternoon, running was slightly limited but there were a selection of different focuses for those present.

Moto3™ riders discuss Red Bull Ring test

There was a new tyre to try for the field, but concentration was split throughout the grid as Honda riders focused on evaluating a new fairing and chassis parts, and Mahindra and Peugeot worked on engine updates. KTM didn’t bring any updates to the test, with Red Bull KTM Ajo focusing on normal test work and evaluating some small issues from the race.

Sky Racing Team VR46 was one of the teams who put in a lot of laps in the rainier conditions, as riders Nicolo Bulega and Andrea Migno work on their wet weather pace after some difficult races in the Dutch and German GPs.

The Moto3™ field now head north to Brno for the HJC Helmets Grand Prix České Republiky as they try and catch points leader Brad Binder.
