CRT teams at Jerez next week

With the Moto2 and Moto3 teams having finished a three day at the Jerez circuit yesterday, on Monday and Tuesday it will the turn of several CRT teams who will continue the development work on their production based Aprilia’s.

Back on track will be Aleix Espargaro and Randy de Puniet with the ART’s under their new racing banner Power Electronics Aspar Team, Mattia Pasini with his Speed Master team, and the test should finally see the debut of James Ellison with PBM’s CRT team and Danilo Petrucci with Ioda Racing (who is developing their own chassis that will house Aprilia’s RSV4 engine).

Also present at Jerez will be Ducati with test rider Franco Battaini who will be continuing development work on the GP12 ahead of the Sepang 2 test (February 28th to March 1st).

Nicky Hayden, who sat out most of the first Sepang test due to his shoulder problems was also to be present at Jerez, but since he had to undergo shoulder surgery, the Italian media is currently reporting that he could be replaced at the test by Pramac’s Hector Barbera who could test the factory version of GP12 (Barbera rides the GP12 Valencia version with some modifications).
