Unfavourable weather conditions limited productivity of premier class riders on day 2 of Jerez testing session. Grey skies and poor rain welcomed 1000cc riders today who sat out the first part of the practice till lunch time.
Even the LCR Honda racer Stefan Bradl could not join the 4.423 Km race track in the morning as planned but we adjusting his RCV to the damp asphalt (23 laps). He finished the day earlier with a best lap time of 1’51.778
Stefan: “Well... today we could not lap so much because of the weather bad conditions but as soon as it started to rain consistently we went out for a couple of laps. Immediately I had a good feeling with the bike, the tyres and everything was good from the beginning. Then we made a change to make the bike turning easier and it worked: we went out on another set of tyres that made me lapping comfortably and I could improve the lap time quite easy. Unfortunately the asphalt was not fully wet so this means that you destroy the tyres too quickly and we have decided to finish the session earlier. We’ll see if the weather is sunny tomorrow for the last outing”.
