Ducati Test Team completes test in Jerez, Spain

22 February 2012
The Ducati Test Team finished a three-day test today at Spain's Circuitode Jerez. As usual, the activities were led by Filippo Preziosi, who followed the work schedule carried out by official test rider Franco Battaini.

Thanks to the mild and favorable weather conditions, Ducati engineers were able to perform tests on setup and electronics, and to gather important information.

Battaini was also joined bythe two riders from Ducati's satellite teams, Cardion AB MotoRacing's Karel Abraham and Pramac Racing's Hector Barbera. Each spent a day alternating with the Italian aboard the GP12 SAT, the former riding on Tuesday, February 21, and the latter participating today.

"We were lucky because we had three days with very good weather conditions,"Filippo Preziosi said, "and that enabled us to do quite a bit of work. With Franco (Battaini), we continued with the test program that was planned for the Test Team over the winter, trying some aspects of the electronics that we'll keep working on with the factory riders at Sepang. I think we found out some interesting things that we'll soon confirm with Vale and Nicky in Malaysia, where we'll also continue working with the bike's setup. Because we had the track available here at Jerez, we also offered our satellite-team riders the opportunity to lap and to work on their respective setups."
