Kawasaki’s Official WSS Squad Make More Preparations For 2010 Campaign

January 21, 2010

After the New Year holidays the Kawasaki Provec team returned to work with a test session at Almeria in Spain last weekend, 16th and 17th January.

The Provec team was evaluating new technical improvements that had arrived from Japan, and gave the opportunity to Joan Lascorz and Katsuaki Fujiwara to enjoy some valuable track time and improve their bike fitness before the next test sessions in Portugal.

Between 22 and 24 January the team will have a chance to get a close look at their main rivals at the official pre-season tests at Portimao.

Joan Lascorz: "The truth is that it has been very positive to take part in these sessions at Almeria before the Portimao tests start. We have proven many small things to continue improving the motorcycle. The new suspension and telemetry engineers have a good understanding with Alex, my chief engineer, and me. I believe that we are seeing the benefits of some great equipment improvements thanks to all the experience we gained in the past year."

Katsuaki Fujiwara: "I arrived from Japan just a few days ago and the same day I got off the plane I continued working with my physical trainer. I feel very well on the motorcycle and every time I can ride to the limit more of the time. We have been improving settings and technical solutions for Portimao, and I believe that we have started our preparations in a good way."

Guim Roda: Team Manager: "Both of our riders are working well with the team. I see that they are very motivated and have great potential. Joan is perfecting his communication with all the staff, so every time he takes the maximum benefit. Each time Kats goes on track he can ride nearer the limits with a greater degree of safety, and that allows him to make greater use of his great experience."
