Testing underway for Crutchlow and Haslam in Brno

1 of 1

British riders Leon Haslam and Cal Crutchlow are benefitting from testing at the Brno circuit today ahead of the tenth round of the World Superbike and Supersport championship at the Czech track later this month.

Crutchlow currently heads the WSS standings by 28 points after his dominant win at Donington Park last time out. The factory Yamaha rider has no prior knowledge of the historic Brno track and will use his one day test to learn the layout and establish a base setting for his R6.

Haslam arrived at the test fresh from his podium last time out and plans to test a host of new parts on his Stiggy Honda CBR1000RR. Haslam will be joined by his fast recovering team-mate John Hopkins who secured eighth place at Donington in race one, but was unable to start race two due to his injuries.

The Stiggy Honda team will test for two days before heading to Imola next week for an official SBK test in preparation for round 12 of the championship at the end of September.
