Tyco BMW’s Michael Laverty has been using the Cartagena Pro-Test to get himself accustomed to the S1000RR again, and his team have been using the time to test out some chassis components and electronic strategies.
The Wales-based racer is happy with the package so far, and has a base setting that he is comfortable with. In addition, Laverty has not been focusing his time on putting down one-off laps and is growing in confidence.
After the final day of testing at the Cartagena track tomorrow, the Presteigne-based rider will continue developing his BMW S1000RR next week in the sunny climate of Almeria.
“It’s been a good test for us. Initially it was just about getting my eye back in and reacquainting myself with the Tyco BMW. From there we began to re-evaluate a number of chassis components and various electronic strategies,” said Laverty, in Spain.
“I’ve got the bike in a very comfortable base setting and my pace is consistent and very strong here around the Cartagena Circuit. I’m really happy with my feeling on the bike and the work we have done here - it’s not about one-off laps for us. We will move onto Almeria with added confidence and continue to refine our package.”
