SBK, Ducati, what's cooking? Tuesday and Wednesday, tests in Misano

Alvaro Bautista and Chaz Davies will be in action with the Panigale V4 after the round on the Riviera. Along with them, also Michele Pirro with the GP19.


The Misano weekend has just ended but, in less than 24 hours, it'll be time for them put their suits and helmets back on and get on the track. The Aruba team knows this, with its two days of tests on Tuesday and Wednesday. Alvaro Bautista will want to leave behind the bitterness of the last round, while Chaz Davies will be called to work on new solutions, in order to improve on his confidence level.

For the Welsh rider, the round in Romagna is one of those to be forgotten, amid technical problems and a bike that he still hasn't been able to custom tailor to his needs. In some ways, it was definitely worse for Michele Pirro. A weekend full of suffering for the rider from Puglia, who ended up falling on several occasions without ever being able to find the right path.

Even Pirro will be on track Tuesday and Wednesday, not with the V4, but with the GP19. Dall'Igna's presence in Misano was an opportunity to discuss and, at the same time, take stock of the situation regarding possible updates for Dovizioso and Petrucci in view of the second part of the season.
