Successful Phillip Island Test for Broc
February 23rd, 2011
Broc ended the two day test at Phillip Island in 2nd place overall only 0.014 seconds from equalling the fastest time of the tests in Australia. The tests concluded in good weather and with more of the same conditions predicted this weekend for the first race of the 2011 season.

“I am happy to have had another couple of days to test because in Almeria it was a bit cold, and it rained in Portugal. So here we did a lot of kilometres on used tyres today to get to a good race set-up. We found some positive directions and the bike felt really good, so we stuck in a new tyre and went for a fast lap.

First Official Test at Portimao, Portugal
January 28th, 2011

We just finished a 3 day test at Portimao with all the world supersport teams. We spent some time setting up the new electronics package but the weather has not been good so we didn't get much dry track time. I ended up with the 3rd fastest time overall and was fastest in the last session even though we weren't really pushing for fast laps as the track was still wet in places.  Now its back to Australia for a test and then the first race on 27 Feb.

The Almeria tests have just been completed with Broc reaching a new track best for the team with a 1’37.3. Fast times like these have already filled the whole team with confidence as they head to Portimao for the Infront Motorsports official tests, between 26 and 28 January.

The Spanish-based Provec team worked on suspension and electronics for the most part at Almeria, and also on developing a plan of work to take to the Portimao tests. Weather conditions stayed dry for all the riders at Almeria with the second day proving a bit cloudier than the first, and therefore cooler.

Broc said: “We got some things really worked out for this test and we went very well. We were under the team’s previous best at this track, which I think was set by Joan last year. We have improved the bike quite a bit, the whole package, and some new electronics. I think that was quite a big step to get sorted. We ...   Read more...
