Juanfran Guevara happy with Jerez testing progress

 In Moto3, News


The mixed weather at Jerez continued to dictate the amount of track action in the Moto3 and Moto2 preseason test, with morning fog restricting the amount of laps on this third and final day.

Less ideal track conditions compared to yesterday did not stop pacesetter Jack Miller from improving his best time, however, the Australian clocking a 1’46.046 to finish the session on top. With six days of preseason testing now complete, the Moto3 riders will be back at Jerez for three more days starting on the 11th March, less than two weeks before the start of the season.

MAPFRE Aspar rider Juanfran Guevara didn’t get out on track until 1:30pm but the youngster rode until 5pm, clocking up 49 laps as he continued to adapt to his new bike. The focus today was again on chassis and geometry set-up, particularly on the rear end.

By the end of the three-day session the new ASPAR Team signing was happy with his progress and confident that he and the team have found the right way forward for his Kalex/KTM machine.

14th Juanfran Guevara 1.47.422 (49 laps):
“We were late going out because of the fog and the track was still cold at the start of the day. We continued working on the set-up of the bike but focused mainly on the rear, and tried some different tyre compounds. We worked with the medium compound yesterday so today we tried the soft, trying to put a consistent rhythm together, but it wasn’t easy because of the track conditions. Even so I am happy with my feeling for the bike and it has been a positive test. We know which way we need to go in the future and we are happy with where we’re at. Hopefully we can refine the setting a little more in the next test.”
