In the last three days of testing, before the start of the 2023 season of the MotoE World Championship, the DYNAVOLT INTACT GP MotoE team achieved excellent results with Randy Krummenacher and Hector Garzò riding the new Ducati V21L.
The Dynavolt Intact GP team riders, Randy Krummenacher and Hector Garzò, concluded the test of the MotoE 2023 in Barcelona, the last ones before the start of the season in the French GP at Le Mans on 12 and 13 May. In the three days of testing on the Catalan circuit, the riders of MotoE had five daily sessions of fifteen minutes each. The main objective was to acquire as much information and knowledge as possible about the new Ducati V21L. The results of the combined tests will define the basic set-up for the two debut races of the MotoE in Le Mans.
Swiss rider Randy Krummenacher pulled it all out of his brand new Ducati V21L, called 'Ludovica'. The 33-year-old fought enthralling duels in the race simulation and finished second on the provisional podium after starting the seven-lap race from the second row.
Hector Garzò dominated the combined standings to go straight into Q2, in which the Spaniard then secured the second position, starting from the grid's front row. In the race simulation, Garzò started in the lead to finish the seven laps of the race in fourth position.

“This test has been positive throughout. We tried out a few things and certainly gained further important experience that will help us move forward. I'm confident that we'll benefit from this at Le Mans. However, the track there has a slightly different character, with some difficult braking points. But we seem to be very strong in this area. So I'm confident for the first race, from my point of view it can start at any time - I'm ready. The race simulation went well, although everything was a bit new for me. But after a good start, I settled in well lap by lap. From that point of view, everything is fitting so far. The team is doing a great job, thanks to everyone for their work over these three days. We are certainly still at the limit and still need to improve. But so far it's going very well."
Hector Garzo (Dynavolt Intact GP)
"I am very satisfied. We had a very good test, my feeling is fantastic. The last session was the only one where we changed something. Because after the race simulation I had a great feeling. So we used today's FP4 to try something new. But we didn't manage a precision landing with it. But I'm not at all unsettled, because we'll just carry on as before. It was just an attempt that didn't work. Apart from that, it was a very positive test for me because I was in the top four or five in every session. On Monday and Tuesday I was just behind the fastest. It was just missing a little bit each time in the morning to do a very fast lap time in better conditions. But we know we can do it, and also the feeling for the bike is excellent in every situation. By that I mean that the handling of the bike, whether in the final laps of the race or on a qualifying lap, is incredible. I think we have everything under control and are ready for the season, we have found the right attitude. Also, I didn't want to do anything stupid or risk anything unnecessary. After all, it was just a test, but I'm very happy with it."
