Busy testing programme for Pedrosa to solve chatter issues
The Repsol Honda Team were back on track in Brno today after Dani Pedrosa’s fantastic win in yesterday’s Grand Prix of the Czech Republic. Dani spent the day completing a busy testing programme covering many areas, including chatter issues and also a new rear shock.
The team will resume their test schedule in Aragón on the 4th and 5th of September.
Dani Pedrosa 1:56.703, 45 laps, 243 km.
“Today, we’ve done a general test looking to improve the feelings we had in yesterday’s race. We tried some ideas to reduce the chatter, but this is something very difficult to fix, so we’ve been basically working on the electronics and the suspension trying to find more edge grip and in the exit of the corner. I tried a new Öhlins shock which gave me some positive feelings and now we have some new ideas to try in Aragón next week.
The track was a little bit slower than yesterday and in the afternoon it was quite windy, but this test was important as it’s a good track to test at and I had all the references still fresh from yesterday’s race”.
