Ducati continues testing at Jerez
19 January 2011 – Ducati test riders Vittoriano Guareschi and Franco Battaini completed the second day of a three-day Ducati MotoGP test session at Jerez de la Frontera on Tuesday, lapping until the track closed due to poor weather in the morning. Guareschi completed 59 laps, while Battaini turned in 66.
"We started the test at 1 p.m. since the morning was foggy, as usual," said Guareschi, the Ducati team manager and test rider. "It was nice and sunny in the afternoon though, and we got in some good laps. I worked on the chassis, while ‘Batta’ continued with the electronics.
"Today I worked a lot on suspension, along with Öhlins technician Mike Norton, who looks after Valentino and who took advantage of this test to familiarize himself with working on the GP11. Franco is at a good point with his work dialing in the anti-wheelie control, so I’d say that for now, everything is proceeding according to plan."
