CHECA AND GIUGLIANO (ALTHEA RACING) CONCLUDE AN OFFICIAL ONE DAY TEST AT THE MOTORLAND ARAGON CIRCUIT
Aragon (Spain), Monday 2nd July: the Althea Racing team and its riders Carlos Checa and Davide Giugliano took part in today’s official Infront Motor Sports test session at the MotorLand Aragon circuit, the same track at which they raced just yesterday.
Pirelli, official tyre supplier for the World Superbike championship, brought new 17 inch tyres to the Spanish track for almost all of the Superbike teams to test today. This new tyre will be introduced into the championship from the start of 2013; it is of the same measurement as tyres mounted on production series sports bikes. Both Carlos and Davide lapped with the new tyres and their feedback was very positive.
Carlos Checa:
“I really liked the new tyre and I’d say it’s almost at the level of the 16.5. It is very stable, corners well and has almost all of the positive attributes of the 16.5 inch. In terms of performance it seems very good, also because we didn’t change the bike setting but it nevertheless performed well. We have seen a slight improvement with regard to the front, but probably this is a combination of the two, which together provide good balance.”
Davide Giugliano:
“Today we worked well and were pretty productive. I must say that I really like the 17 inch tyre. During today’s sessions I was able to find good sensation, especially at the front which allowed me to improve on my best time set yesterday. I’m happy; it’s been a positive day as far as I’m concerned.”
