The first pre-season tests of 2022 have drawn to a close for Team HRC at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in Spain.
The squad originally planned to ride for two days but, having completed everything it had on the to-do list already during Wednesday’s sessions, the decision was made to ‘bank’ day two for use at another time.
The one-day session proved more than worthwhile for the squad and its two new riders, Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge, as they took to the track with their CBR1000RR-R FIREBLADES. Although the Jerez circuit does not feature on the 2022 WorldSBK calendar, the track has nevertheless allowed the team to collate precious data and evaluate various components and set-ups. Continuing to adapt to their new machines, Vierge and Lecuona worked hard with their Team HRC technicians, focusing on all areas of set-up including the electronics, bike geometry and tyre testing.
Team HRC will now continue its work back at base, before returning to the track for further testing in the near future.
