Positive final test of the season with Red Bull KTM Ajo for Miguel Oliveira

 In Moto3, News


After a wet start to the preseason, the Red Bull KTM Ajo 2015 riders enjoyed three days of good weather in testing at the Comunitat Valenciana circuit in Spain this week. Hanika, Oliveira and Binder were able to ride for the first time with the new 2015 KTM, ending satisfied with their trio of testing days and with important conclusions drawn to help further work –ahead of the next test next year.

Throughout this final test, the Red Bull KTM Ajo riders put in over 60 laps each day. The test provided the ideal chance to compare this year’s bike with next season’s machine over the course of three days. All three riders had their first laps onboard the new KTM this week. Oliveira, Binder and Hanika were thus given the chance to start choosing the direction they will take their initial work strategy, and were amongst the fastest riders from the opening laps of the test onwards.

As of now, the Red Bull KTM Ajo riders will not ride their bikes again until next February, when the preseason is reopened after a testing ban. Until then, the riders will enjoy two months of vacations and personal training.

“This test has been very positive. I felt much more comfortable with both the bike and the team –who are helping me a lot. We have set good lap times and a very good pace. Yesterday and today we tested the new 2015 KTM; although it was the first time with it, the feeling was very good. This gives me a lot of motivation to keep working hard in the winter and if possible get stronger for next season.”
