The goal for Jordi Torres was to improve the feeling with his new MV Agusta F4 RC, testing new solutions to the electronics and trying to adapt his riding style to the 4-cylinder Schiranna machine. The 4-days test have brought some encouraging results, with the 30-years old Spaniard closing 7th at Jerez and entering the top 10 at Portimao.

With a totally renewed rider’s line up, the team lead by Giovanni Crosta took advantage of the 4 days of testing in Jerez and Portimao, building up a solid feeling between riders, bike and squad. Raffaele De Rosa and Ayrton Badovini, respectively, closed in first position at Jerez and Portimao, proving the positive job done by the team at this stage.

Jordi Torres #81 WorldSBK – In these days we really had a lot of things to test, especially with the electronics. I got excellent feedback from the bike, especially from the chassis. This is a preliminary contacts but the results we got at Jerez and Portimao makes me confident for my debut race with MV Agusta. I wish to thank my team for the excellent job, I really really look forward to fly to Phillip Island.

Raffaele De Rosa #3 WorldSSP – In these 4 days of testing we tried different solutions but the main goal it has always been to improve my feeling with the bike, and I must say I’m really happy with the progress we made. Considering I rode for a long period on superbike models, it was crucial to lap as much as possible with my new supersport bike. I have immediately found a good feeling with my bike and I must say this F3 is really fun to ride. The team did a great job, both on the track and at the Racing Department. There’s so much interest in this project and it gives me a great motivation. I’m happy to be part of this group and I cannot wait to get back on track at Phillip Island

Ayrton Badovini #86 WorldSSP – I am very happy with how these first tests went with my new team. In particular, I am definitely satisfied with the progress we made with the team at this first stage. After Jerez I was not yet completely comfortable with the bike but now we are definitely moving in the right direction.
