COVID has complicated plans once again, so much so that the Sepang tests – considered the start of the World Championship season – have been canceled. Without the Malaysian stage, the teams have equipped themselves to carry on their development work in Europe.
Just like Honda has. They took to the track with Stefan Bradl about ten days ago at Jerez during the Superbike tests. The German rider and the HRC test team will again be present on the Andalusian track February 10th-11th, when Michele Pirro will be on the track with the Ducati.
The test rider from Puglia will, in fact, be busy with the MotoGP, while all the other Ducati riders, such as Bagnaia, Zarco, Miller, Martin, Bastianini, and Marini will be busy with the road bikes, namely, the Panigale V4S.
On February 16th and 17th, again on the Jerez track, we’ll see the KTM in action with Dani Pedrosa. In short, the start of the World Championship is approaching, and no one wants to be caught unprepared.
