The Jerez tests officially close out the MotoGP season
Posted on Nov 26, 2019 by Aprilia Racing Team Gresini
The tests were partially marred by the weather, with rain falling on the Spanish track during the final session.
In Noale, work continues non-stop on the new 2020 RS-GP, a revamped project with the clear goal of marking a turning point for Aprilia. So, Aleix Espargaró, Andrea Iannone and Bradley Smith worked on the 2019 package, analysing new solutions, especially in terms of electronics, making progress from which the new prototype will be able to benefit.
The Spanish tests were also a chance for the new engineers who have embraced the Aprilia project to make their début, important reinforcements in anticipation of the new season that will start with the Sepang tests in February 2020.
"Our programme here was not much different than the one in Valencia. We are gathering the final data that will allow the racing department to refine the 2020 bike. The weather wasn’t the best, especially on the second day, but we tried to provide as much information as possible, even lapping in the wet."
