Despite the sudden rain that forced most of the riders to miss the mid-day session – also limiting their performance in the afternoon – the second day of #MotoE testing at Jerez de la Frontera gave other indications to Alma Pramac Racing riders, especially to Josh Hook who had the opportunity to lap in dry conditions in the morning. Lap after lap, the feeling with the Energica Ego Corsa is improving, as is the experience of the team’s technicians with an absolutely innovative bike. Battery management and engine temperature control, for example, will be some of the key factors for the outcome of the 5 races that will be staged in Europe in the 2019 MotoE season.
Josh completed 9 laps in the morning session while Alex, forced by the rain to stay in the garage in the second session as his bike was set up for dry conditions, in the afternoon could only complete 3 laps because of the tricky conditions of the circuit still wet.
“It is a fascinating experience and for this, I would like to thank again the Alma Pramac Racing team that gave me this opportunity. The feeling increase lap by lap and the performances are really interesting. There is still a lot of work to be done, for example on braking point, but the feeling is very positive”.
Alex De Angelis
“Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to work well today. We were ready with slicks in the second session but the rain ruined our plans. The same thing happened in the afternoon as the track conditions were mixed. We are ready to get back on track tomorrow, presumably in wet conditions”.
