MOTOGP – SECOND DAY OF PRACTICE IN QATAR
THE APRILIA RS-GP MACHINES CONTINUE TO IMPROVE THEIR TIMES, SESSION AFTER SESSION
Losail (Qatar), 18 March 2016 - On the Losail track, in preparation for the Qatar GP that will kick off the MotoGP World Championship on Sunday, the second day of practice was held with two sessions today, FP2 and FP3.
Aprilia has the new RS-GP bikes on the grid for their maiden race weekend and they have continued to improve their times session after session. In the three sessions held yesterday and today, the Aprilia V4 machines demonstrated consistent progress on the clock both with Bautista (1’57.129 - 1’57.012 - 1’56.749), and with Bradl (1’57.989 - 1’57.541 - 1’57.069). This is good feedback for a project that is taking its first steps with margins for improvement that are still just waiting to be discovered.
