'It's always good to leave a track as the fastest' - Redding

MarcVDS Moto2 team leader Scott Redding is happy with his performance over three days of testing at Jerez, leaving the Spanish track with the quickest laptime but also having evaluated his new Kalex chassis over a race distance.

Redding's pace experienced serious dips when his 2011 Suter bike couldn't minimise the amount of grip lost towards the end of a race but the 2012 bike allows him to manage it much better - giving him the confidence to push to the finish.

“It’s the first time since we took delivery of the new bikes that we’ve had good testing conditions and we certainly made the most of them. We’ve made some changes to my riding position, as well as making the bike quicker to turn, but I think there’s still more to come in terms of setup," said Redding.


“Today’s race simulation was really important, because it was the first chance for me to see how the handling is affected once the tyres started to go off. I was quite surprised with the result; there is definitely a drop off, but it’s nowhere near as steep as we experienced in the races this year, and it’s possible to maintain a pretty consistent lap time.

“Overall, I’m really pleased with how things have gone here at Jerez and it’s always good to leave a test as the fastest rider on track! Right now I’m looking forward to the winter break, but I know I’ll be itching to get back on track in a matter of days!”
