Team HRC has completed two days of testing alongside some of the other WorldSBK teams at the Motorland Aragón circuit in Alcañiz, Spain.
Official riders Alvaro Bautista and Leon Haslam have been out on track with their CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP machines, making the most of warm and sunny conditions at the Spanish circuit (aside from some light rain in the final hour of day two) as they prepare for the next championship rounds with their technicians. Having already completed a productive test at the same track last month, the factory team continued with its setup work schedule while also preparing for the upcoming Aragón double-header.
The Team HRC riders were able to get through an intense testing schedule, something that is not always possible over a busy race weekend. Bautista completed his work at the end of a productive day one. Haslam completed the two-day session, maintaining a consistently good pace especially throughout the second day. Both riders consider the test to have been constructive, the pair feeling quietly confident ahead of the next events.
Team HRC now has a brief break before Rounds 4 and 5 of the Superbike World Championship, both of which are set to take place at the Motorland Aragón facility in Spain over the weekends of 28-30 August and 4-6 September.
The MotorLand Aragon road racing circuit was opened in 2009 and in 2011 it became the fifth Spanish track to host the WorldSBK™ Championship. MotorLand Aragón Ctra. TE- V- 7033 KM. 1. 44600 Alcañiz (Teruel) – Spain motorlandaragon.com
