The first test of the MotoE World Cup took place last week on the Jerez circuit. The OCTO Pramac team and the riders, Alex De Angelis and Josh Hook, said they were very satisfied with the outcome of these three days. The results achieved are very useful because they have brought so much information necessary for the development and understading of the bike. On the last day of testing, Alex De Angelis lowered his time to 1:47.944, the fourth best time of the MotoE pack. Good pace also for Josh Hook who finishes the tests with the best time of 1:48.568, in ninth position of the standings of the combined sessions. Here their statements after the end of the tests.
Alex De Angelis
“I am happy with today's day, and satisfied of how we approached this test. Today I made my best time and we improved both the pace and the set-up. I am convinced of the decision not to participate in the first session of day three because there was fog, the track was damp and I didn't want to lose the feeling that we had in these days. I want to thank my team for staying here with me in this very special moment, we hope that we can return to normal life as soon as possible."
“Three very positive days, we got a lot of useful information. The weather allowed us to do many laps on the track, giving us the opportunity to understand many more things than last year. The pace is certainly good, we just have to try to find some more power, but I am very satisfied with how these days have gone and how we have worked."
