The Repsol rider concludes two positive testing days in which he tested new developments for the Suter and gathered more kilometres in Moto2
Three days after the end of the Spanish Grand Prix, Moto2’s Marc Marquez is leaving the Jerez Circuit after doing around 400 kilometres of testing in two practice days at the Andalusian track.
The Repsol rider, a rookie in the intermediate category, kept gathering kilometres on his Moto2, apart from testing some new developments for his Suter.
With sun and without the high wind that prevented him from taking the track in the morning, Marc Marquez got out on the Jerez track at 10:30h, making the most of the 25 degrees of ambient temperature and the 24ºC that had reached the asphalt of the track.
Marquez, the 2010 125cc MotoGP Champ, did 32 laps until, in the afternoon, the wind started to blow again and he had to conclude the tests.
Wednesday’s work was focused on testing the set-ups of his bike, as well as trying some new developments supplied by Suter that worked satisfactorily for Marquez and his team.
The Repsol rider also took the opportunity to do some starts practice and gather more kilometers before the Portuguese Grand Prix, which will take place at the end of this month in Estoril.
Marc Marquez (Repsol Moto2: 32 laps, 142 km) says: “Today the wind altered our testing plan. Despite that, we were able to test some set-ups for the Suter and I think we can draw a positive conclusion of the two days of tests. The important thing was to gather more kilometres with the bike before the Estoril race, so we fulfilled our main objective. My technical team did a good job and I must thank them for it.”
