The Argiñano Racing Team has completed its second day of preseason testing at the Jerez circuit, having slept little. Ricky Cardús has today focused on riding with the AJR, with which he did more than 50 laps and was satisfied and hopeful. The rider from Tiana today tried a different fork from the one usually on the bike to have more data when comparing the Spanish motorcycle with the Suter that he has also available. Tomorrow he will take the opportunity to ride the Swiss bike and continue to compare, on Saturday he will make the final decision about which bike the Argiñano Racing Team will ride with in the Moto2 championship 2012. The team is new, but the pieces fit together naturally. Mechanics and ride work together comfortably and smoothly. Communication flows and this translates into an improved laptime. Yesterday Ricky did a 1.46.2, today he improved by almost a second to 1.45.3. The rider can make his rhythm and that gives confidence.

Ricky Cardús: “We have improved the time from yesterday, also the feeling. I did more miles and it shows on the track. What is important is that every time we go out we improve, but I have to improve my riding. We had some rain and we have used that to make a big change on the bike and it had some effect. I am very happy with how everything goes, with the bike, the team, the pace. We have one more day to improve my riding and the bike.”

Karlos Argiñano: “Our team finished its work yesterday in the circuit at half past three. And in the early hours of Friday we were all taking up the work again. New bike, new team, a lot of motivation and at 8 in the morning we are working again. It has been a very interesting day, Ricky’s laptimes please everyone. Our rider is happy and that allows us to continue helping him. The team is doing well and we really have a good feeling. Let’s see if tomorrow we can take another step forward. “
