Haojue 125GP boss Garry Taylor admitted the new squad had enjoyed a ‘baptism of fire’ after its official testing debut at the Jerez circuit in Spain.

British rookie Matt Hoyle and Austrian team-mate Michael Ranseder were left way down the timesheets as the Haojue machine continued its winter development at the Spanish circuit.

“It has been something of a baptism of fire for the team in general and for our GP rookie Matt Hoyle in particular. Most of the machines out there have a few seasons of race development, while we are still testing new ideas, parts and set-ups.

“We had a lot of work to do with various engine and chassis options in a limited amount of on-track time, but we have come away with a stack of information, data and experience, which will help us, continue to move forward.

“For Matt it was his first time on track with GP class riders and he coped really well. Michael worked really hard, riding smoothly and consistently to give great feedback to the team. He put in so many laps that the motor reached the end of its service life and he had to miss the last session.”
