“The Kirkistown circuit is a good test for such a short lap and I think both the team and I learned a lot in such a short space of time, considering that I only really got two hours yesterday and half-a-day today.”
Team manager Philip Neill was satisfied overall with the results of the test, which he says served as a fitting lead in to the Donington shakedown.
“It's never a good sign to arrive at a circuit and be greeted by one of your mechanics carrying a dash in their hand, but I suppose broken bodywork and a bit of scratched metal indicate the start of a new season,” he said.
“On a positive note, a lot has been achieved in such a short space of time for both Josh and PJ and we come away from this with a lot of valuable information, not least from the hard work with Richard from Öhlins these past two days
“We will take these positives to Donington Park next week then onto Brands and Snetterton, after which we should be well ready to race and compete in both classes.”
