Superbike at Lausitzring: Aprilia RSV4 and Savadori lead the field in first practices

The long summer break is officially ended for the World Superbike stars with the beginning of EuroSpeeway Lausitzring free practice on the 2016 German Round, tenth round of the season. After two rounds on the demanding German track Aprilia celebrates the best lap time clocked by Lorenzo Savadori at the end of FP2 in 1'37.449, while Alex De Angelis finished the first day of the Lausitzring with the 12th time in 1'38.356. Team Iodaracing riders, who have not participated in any of the summer practice session on the German track, have used FP1 to get familiar with the layout of the EuroSpeedway, while in the afternoon they have tried to improve their lap times. Progression was both very important for Savadori and De Angelis and the good work done has turned to the pitbox at the end of FP2 in the best lap time of day by the reigning champion of the Superstock 1000. For Savadori this is the second best time in FP2 after the previous one got during the Round of Malaysia at Sepang track, like the Lausitzring never seen before by Lorenzo. Savadori worked in perfect harmony with the technicians of Iodaracing and Aprilia in the box, using only on the last FP2 run the soft rubber with which he clocked his 1.37.449.

"My good lap was not perfect, but the result was certainly positive. We were sure in the box to be able to improve my lap times this morning and it was nice to do that. Of course mine was an excellent single lap, the race pace instead , we still have to work on it, because not having done any testing here before I don't know the track so well. It was not easy for me to take back all on the saddle after so long break in the summer without riding. But in the box we have worked well and I have to thank the guys the Iodaracing Team and Aprilia for their hard work. Now we just hope that the weather will not betray, although the forecast does not say anything good".

"We started very well this morning although we had not done any testing, pity only for a small crash in the final of the first session. In the afternoon I had some difficulties especially for two episodes in which the bike goes off. The guys in the team are checking what happened, but nevertheless I am in the classification mid-table and tomorrow we can start from there. We just hope that it does not rain because we settled quite well and we should start all over from the beginning".
