Barbera not able to profit from new engine in Misano qualifying

Good prospects for tomorrow’s race for the Avintia Blusens team, though the expected positions were not achieved in the qualifying. Despite the first use of the engines with pneumatic valves in Héctor’s hands was very positive, time is needed to adapt the electronics and the settings of the FTR bike to its use and that, somehow, took a toll in the qualifying session. Barberá tested an endless number of settings in search of ideal solutions for the race but when the qualifying session came he had not defined it yet and he was not able to obtain the desired results. Tomorrow he will use known configurations that allow him to ride without chattering and, this way, he will try to make the most of the greater response from his new engine.

Both riders are very confident for the race in which they both hope to fight for a place among the top three of CRT and score points in the classification.

8 Héctor Barberá: (17th, 1.35.886): “I am happy with the fact of having used for the first time the new engine, but it has been a pity to not have been able to make the most of it. We have tested many things to adapt the settings to the response of the new engine, but we have not succeeded. We have had a lot of chattering and that has not allowed us to be quick. It is a pity, because the engine is better in all its range and I think that we can be very competitive with it, but today we have not been able to take advantage of it. For tomorrow we will go with more reliable solutions and, if we manage to have few rebounds on the front wheel, I am sure of doing a good race”.
