Team HRC has completed two intense days of testing at the Motorland circuit in Aragón (Spain), joined also by the Japanese engineers for the first time since the opening round of the championship at Phillip Island in early March.
Sunny weather and the hot yet breezy conditions allowed factory riders Alvaro Bautista and Leon Haslam to make full use of the available track time.
Taking turns with the WorldSSP300 teams, the WorldSBK and WorldSSP riders in attendance lapped for four hours each day, with two morning and two afternoon sessions. Team HRC worked on its CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP machines in race configuration, collecting a great deal of set-up data to continue its all-important bike development work and in preparation for the second round of the championship, scheduled to run from 31 July to 2 August at Jerez de la Frontera.
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
