Useful day of testing for Pramac riders
21 August 2007 – On Monday, almost all the MotoGP riders remained in Brno to test tires and new parts in order to continue improving the bikes for the next World Championship races, and also for the 2008 season. For the Pramac d'Antin Team it was a very positive day with both riders able to gather important data to use during the following Grand Prix races.
Alex Barros was focused mainly on testing Bridgestone tires, searching for the right balance that would give him confidence and speed. Barros continued lowering his times throughout the day, and is ready for the next GP in Misano, Italy.
"This morning we started early because we had a lot of Bridgestone tires at our disposal to test," said Barros. "Today we focused on testing the rears looking for differences between the rubber compounds and the tire body. We got very positive results that will be helpful, especially in the overseas races. With two kinds of Bridgestone tires I felt a very positive feeling and this makes me very confident. We wanted to try qualifying tires, also, but unfortunately we didn't hav time because it started to rain. Tomorrow we have other test day to use, so if there are good weather conditions we will work on that and also try some different pieces from Ducati."
Pramac d'Antin will spend one more day in Brno with the Brazilian, Alex Barros, before travelling to Misano after a one week break.
