Solid Performance for MV Agusta Reparto Corse at Portimao Test

MV Agusta Reparto Corse successfully concluded its pre-season testing with Leon Camier finishing 5th on the timesheets in WorldSBK class, only 0.5s far from the top rider.

The fast Brit rider and his team worked hard during this second and last testing day; along the 81 laps he rode on the Portuguese track, Camier and the MV Agusta mechanics were able to test new solutions on the MV Agusta F4 RC chassis and a new weight balancing, refining the electronic as well.

With such an intense amount of laps, Camier was able to constantly improve his pace, and now look forward to the next track session at Phillip Island, in Australia, for the forthcoming official WorldSBK test.

In WorldSSP stands out the brilliant performance of the new team’s rider, the young and fast Patrick “PJ” Jacobsen who got a great feeling with his MV Agusta F3 675 and took the first position in the WorldSSP chart, with a 1’46 “229 lap time.

5 positions behind the American rider closed his teammate Alessandro Zaccone, the other new MV Agusta rider completed his second test with the Italian iconic manufacturer before the beginning of the European Supersport Cup.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK rider – I am really happy with the test. I didn’t expect to be as close to the front guys as we were but I had a strong feeling with the bike and I was able to push really hard. The team is working really well together and we did a great improvement with the electronic as well. I look forward to the next track session in Phillip Island.

Patrick PJ Jacobsen #99 WorldSSP rider – Testing was very good over these two days. I am very happy with the team and everyone is working really hard. I now look forward to race in Phillip Island and I am sure things will go great and we will move even forward the next time we will be out on track. Thanks to my team for this great days.

Alessandro Zaccone #61 European SSP rider – Today we did a nice job. Unfortunately, yesterday I came down with the flu and I couldn’t ride at my best. Still, we managed to constantly improve and the morning we lowered 1.5s from the previous day lap time. To be honest, I am very happy with all the guys on the team and the bike has so much potential, I love it and can not wait to get back on track.
