ASSEN ROUND FOR MOTOGP
In the first practice sessions Bautista and Melandri are hard at work on new materials and setups for their Aprilia RS-GP bikes.
Assen (Holland), 25 June 2015 - For Aprilia Racing Team Gresini the first two practice sessions of the Dutch GP round were the ideal continuation of the tests begun at Barcelona the Monday after the last race. That was a day of testing which, as we all know, was hindered by poor weather. Completely in line with a season that for Aprilia is one long test session and race trial, some of the solutions tested at Barcelona were therefore brought to Assen to be tested directly in the free practice sessions of this round. At the end of the day Bautista, who shaved more than seven tenths off his time between the first and second free practice, finished with the 20th best time (1’35,489) whereas Melandri stopped at 24th place with a time of 1’37,225.
