Constructive test for Ray
Constructive test for Ray

Brad Ray was on track this week at the latest World Superbike test in Catalunya ahead of the second round of the season.

It was a constructive two days for Ray as he and the Moto X Racing Yamaha team headed to Barcelona three weeks after the opening round of the season, working on the set-up of the Yamaha.

On Thursday the British rider completed 80 laps, the best of which in1’43”278, before making another 57 laps on Friday and improving significantly on his time to set a best of 1’42”413.

Despite the gap the front runners in terms of lap times, beyond the lap times, the test has served to prepare the bike ahead of the second WorldSBK round that will take place at the same Catalan track next weekend.

Speaking at the end of the test, Ray said: “Two intense and important days in which we’ve worked really hard on our bike. We found a good setup today and, more importantly, understood the direction in which we need to work over the race weekend.

“We need to close the gap that separates us from the quickest riders, but this test has allowed me to build confidence with my bike at this track and so I’m optimistic ahead of round 2 here at Barcelona.”
