The full Aprilia team is already in Spain, though not at Aragon where the race will take place on Sunday but at Valencia. Stefan Bradl and Alvaro Bautista are busy with a two-day test session at the Ricardo Tormo racetrack together with test rider Mike Di Meglio.
The main aim of these tests is to confirm the new frame that Alvaro used in the Misano race, crossing the line tenth. Stefan however, having suffered a crash in practice, preferred to use the old frame but will now have time, today and tomorrow, to better evaluate the new one.
As well as the chassis, Noale technicians have also brought other material and will also carry out tests with regard to new electronics strategies. Right now, the priority is to improve the distribution of RS-GP.
