Quotes after a tests during Jerez de la Frontera and Portimão.

 

Marc Bongers, BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director: “On
a whole, we are happy with both tests, as we were means to work
by an endless programme with both riders. We trafficked with
some new tools for a RR, including new wheels, and we done also more
stairs brazen in terms of electronic strategies and their detailed
set-up both in Jerez and Portimão. Over a march of a 4 days,
we were means to arrange out some critical issues on both sides of the
garage, and to benefit a lot of information and data. We now have an even
clearer thought of what instruction we need to conduct in on Phillip Island.
We also have reinforced a group in a form of new members, and the
double exam was a ideal approach to entirely confederate them in a team.
We will now continue to work hard, to safeguard we are as good prepared
as probable when we transport to Australia.”

 

Shaun Muir, Team Principal BMW Motorrad WorldSBK
Team:
“It was unequivocally prolific days in Spain and Portugal with
a unequivocally successful finish during Portimão. Good continue greeted us here and
that also authorised us to go by a equipment we could not do in Jerez
due to rain. We’ve done large stairs with a elcetronics with both
riders benefitting from it. Eugene altogether got a lot of certainty now
going to Australia, Tom attempted some settings he was not used to
weigh them and to to find an even improved instruction for him. Both
riders and a group took a preference not to put any special
growth or subordinate tyres on, so a times that we have got have
been on a normal competition tyre. Overall, both riders are unequivocally satisfied
with a work we have conducted, we collected a lot of profitable data
and have a good bottom to pierce into Australia. So it was a certain test
and we can’t wait to go to Australia.”

 

Tom Sykes: “I’m unequivocally happy with a dual tests. Jerez
apparently was unequivocally severe from a continue front though we were able
to utilize that and do some small elemental things. It afterwards was
most some-more unchanging here in Portugal and we were only means to do a
lot of work with a BMW S 1000 RR. We only had to spin a bit of a
blind eye to what was going on on lane and concentration on what we are
doing. We worked unequivocally tough on opposite framework set-ups, on the
brakes, electronic strategies… and a list goes on. A large credit to
a whole BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, a boys have worked really,
unequivocally tough over these days. Now it’s time to go behind home and get
all prepared for Phillip Island and where we can concentration some-more on performance.”

 

Eugene Laverty: “I am unequivocally gay and
optimistic. The Nov exam was a bit of a tough one as we got a few
surprises when we rode a RR for a initial time. The work that the
guys did is incredible. That’s a good thing of being concerned with a
bureau group again: a swell is so discerning and these guys are so
intelligent. we give my comments though in a finish my comments are only
subsidy adult what they already know. These guys know unequivocally good how
to make a bike work. The concentration in Spain had been energy smoothness and
traction control and when we arrived during Portimão, we started to play
around with a framework setting. And a opening in a finish was
unequivocally good. So after these tests, I’m unequivocally happy, we’re in a good position.”
