Under the supervision of team manager Francis Batta' and Ducati SBK project manager Ernesto Marinelli, the newly formed team were unable to complete much work on Saturday and Sunday due to the persistent rain and strong winds but made the most of Monday, in improved conditions, completing as much as possible in the half day available to them and collecting important information.
It was of course not possible to respect the original planned programme of work but the limited track time did allow the riders to build their confidence with the bike and provide some good feedback which will proveto be an extremely important starting point when it comes to the next tests in Australia.
The 1199 Panigale R bikes will now go back to Alstare's racing department where work will continue in coming weeks. The SBK Ducati Alstare team is scheduled to return to the tracks on 14-15 February at Phillip Island, for more private testing.before the final official tests take place at the same circuit.
