Ellison and Lowes on the pace in Aragon testing

1 of 1

The Parkalgar and Bogdanka Honda World Supersport teams have completed their second round of testing with two days at the Aragon circuit in Spain.

Having set the pace at last weeks Portimao test, Parkalgar Honda rider Sam Lowes was once again fast at the Spanish track despite nursing his injured foot following his crash last week.

Lowes said:  We did a lot of laps over the last days and we have moved my Parkalgar Honda forward. I have a good feeling with my bike at Aragon and spent the end of the test fine tuning for feel and rear grip. My last run was consistent and fast so that is a good position to leave here on and I am ready for Australia now. We are on it.”

Bogdanka Honda man James Ellison was equally upbeat as he continues his impressive adoption from a Superbike in BSB to the front running WSS Honda.

He said: “It was a good test. After reconfirming that the set-up from Portimao was a way to go yesterday, today we’ve done some tyre testing, gathered a lot of information and just tried to go faster again, which we did, so I’m happy. Our bike works really well so I can’t wait for Australia.”

Simon Buckmaster, Parkalgar Honda Team Manager: “It was cold for both days but it was also dry and a very good test. Sam was right on the quickest pace with James Ellison on our sister Bogdanka PTR Honda and those pair were clearly faster than any of the other Supersport riders. Sam has a good feeling for his Parkalgar Honda and the knowledge of the track will be beneficial when we return.”

The next outing for two British run teams will be at Phillip Island in Australia for a two day test on 20th to 21st February.
