Luke Mossey kicks off 2015 BSB testing

1 of 3

The first of the 2015 MCE British Superbike testing programmes has gotten underway in Spain, with Supersport graduate Luke Mossey taking to track at Cartagena on the Quattro Plant Teccare Kawasaki.

Mossey spent four days on the southern Spanish track shaking down his new machine, as he adapts from supersport to superbike machinery for the first time. Teammate Howie Mainwaring wasn’t present, but the team are set to return to Spain in early March for further pre-season testing.

Speaking after the four days, Mossey said: “It was great to get out on track in Spain and have a bit of a shakedown test to get the year started. It was my first time riding the Superbike in the dry - I have only ridden some laps in the wet and I loved it. I couldn't have asked for much more!”

“I was just trying to get in as many miles as possible so I can get used to the bike so when we get to the official tests in March it's not a massive shock for me. We have had a brilliant test and I am really getting to grips with it now. It's still fast compared to the Supersport, but I really enjoyed it. We have done more than what we set out to achieve and now I can go back on a positive note ready for the official tests. I know it’s a learning year but I know how good the bike is and I hope we can get some good results for myself and the team.”
