14/02/18 IRTA Moto3 Test – Circuito de Jerez
Reale Avintia Academy rider Livio Loi finished a succesful three-day test today at Jerez circuit in Spain. During the test the team has been working close with KTM engenieers to adapt the bike settings to Loi’s needs and during the three days he has been able to test many different things on the bike with positive results.
Although its final position on the standings does not reflect it, the race pace has been very good and, just on the second day Livio went out in track searching a fast lap time. He has been working with race tyres almost all the test to gain rythym and confidence with the bike and, overall, it has been a very productive test in which the team has been able to get information to improve even more when they return to Jerez at the beginning of March.
“We’ve completed antother three days of testing in Jerez and I think we can be happy with the steps made from the first to the last day, we’ve been able to try many different things on the bike and we’ve done quite good times, but the best thing of these test it’s that I’ve been very consistent. Overall I’m satisfied, we still have to find a bit more grip on the rear, because that’s where we’re struggling more, but once we can solve it, I think we can be very strong and be in the front. We’re not far from the fastets riders here and we have done a great job. I am already looking forward to returning to Jerez for the last test of the preseason”.
