Ducati to Work on 800cc Machines After Brno Race
Speaking of the Czech GP, the track was constructed in the mid-’80s, and offers a great mixture of turns and elevation changes, and is fast, flowing and very wide.
The team also announced that a test will take place on the Monday after the Grand Prix, and the Ducati Team will dedicate that day to working on the 800.
“During both the race weekend and the Monday test, we’ll continue concentrating on the bike’s setup, with the goal of reducing the gap to the lead group,” stated Rossi.
“It’s clear that everybody at Ducati is doing the maximum, so we’ll go there and try to get a good result. Obviously the test on Monday will be really important for us. I’ll probably just ride the GP11 on the race weekend and then test the new bike on Monday,” added Hayden.
“After Laguna Seca the team had the chance to rest for a few days, even though the work at Ducati never stopped. The Test Team tried some electronics updates at Mugello, and we’ll use them in the post-race test at Brno to continue improving the setup and reduce the gap to the lead group. Filippo [Preziosi] will be on hand Monday, and we’ll continue the development work on the GP11.1 with both Valentino and Nicky,” said Team Manager Vittoriano Guareschi.
