Former World Superbike Champion Carlos Checa says he has found a setup he is happy with after spending two days lapping at Jerez in an effort to understand why he couldn't make the Alstare Ducati Panigale work at Aragon.
The Spaniard struggled in almost every aspect at the track from top speed to turn-in and could only muster a brace of top-right places as his bike refused to do what he wanted.
"These were two very important days that we used to better understand the bike’s reactions. The weather helped us this time around too. We worked on different solutions for both the front and rear setting and in the end I’m happy with what we were able to get done. We’ve found a set-up that I like and this is important in order to have a good base from which to start at Assen," said Checa.
