Loris Baz discovers his new girlfriend, the BMW S1000RR
Loris Baz will be back next year in World Superbike with the BMW Althea team. Our Savoy cheetah was already able to stretch his paws yesterday on the occasion of the first day of winter tests organized in Jerez (Spain): he ranks fourth and finds time to post a video !
Unsurprisingly, the Jonathan Rea set the best time on the first day of the autumn tests (!) At Jerez, in the southern tip of Spain. The "Number One" Kawasaki took advantage of excellent weather conditions to descend, on its own, under 1 ’40 (chronos at the bottom of the article).
Second to a third of a second behind his ruthless team-mate "JR", Tom Sykes proves if it was necessary that the official ZX-10RRs have a clear advantage over the competition, despite the challenges for the new season..
Rea in the lead, it started again as in 15, 16, 17 ?
In the absence of the factory Ducatis, it is an Aprilia Factory which climbs on the podium on Monday: the n ° 50 of Eugene Laverty, which is 1.5 seconds behind the best time posted by the Ninja n ° 1. Lorenzo Savadori on his RSV4 n ° 32 is two tenths behind.
- MNC of November 16, 2017 :
Between Noale’s two machines slips the only BMW of the WSBK 2018 grid to date: prepared by the Althea team! After 75 laps in the company of his new "friend", Bazooka is already at the level of "Youdjine" and "Sava" who already have a whole 2017 season in their hands aboard their Aprilia.
Site also notes that the "Savoyard cheetah" runs faster than Jordi Torres which he replaces on the S1000RR. However, it should be remembered that the "Spanish Elvis" is just recovering from his. The majority of the 90 laps made by the F4 RC were also made by Alex de Angelis, prestigious test driver. !
Leandro Mercado has also discovered his new 2018 motorcycle: the Argentinian rider who rode for Aprilia Ioda Racing in 2017 will ride a Kawasaki next year as part of the new Orelac Racing VerdNatura team. He finished 2.4 seconds behind his new leader.
Finally, Yonny Hernandez was able to test – and be tested by! – the Kawasaki Pedercini team. The Colombian ended his first and only day aboard the ZX-10RR 2.8 seconds behind Jonathan Rea. Testing continues for other pilots – and will begin for others! – this week in Jerez: stay tuned !
