Loris satisfied with progress despite second Spanish WorldSBK test being cut short
Loris Cresson heads in the winter break satisfied with the progress made with Pedercini Racing, despite their final 2020 test together, at MotorLand Aragon in Spain, was cut short after just one day due to bad weather.
Continuing to adapt quickly to life as a World Superbike rider after several successful years competing in World Supersport, Loris is optimistic of what the future holds and is looking forward to announcing his 2021 plans shortly.
“The test was cut short for us because of the weather but I am happy with the step we made. Wednesday was really productive, and we made real progress with the bike, and with how I need to ride a Superbike compared to a Supersport machine. We made a small change for our last exit and went 0.7s faster with a new tyre, which was a great way to end the opening day. For sure the gap to Jonathan (Rea) and Alex (Lowes) is still quite big but they know the bike and they know how to race the ZX10-RR at Aragon. I feel much more confident on the bike, more comfortable when riding and I am able to push more. The plan and hope was to go at least a second faster today but in the end, it was impossible to ride or do anything meaningful, so we left the circuit early. I want to thank Pedercini Racing, and everyone who has made the tests after the final race of the season at Estoril, Jerez and here in Aragon possible. I hope to be able to announce my plans soon and, in the meantime, I hope everyone stays safe. See you on track in 2021!”
