Christian Iddon says he felt a massive improvement with his leg injury after testing at Snetterton and has declared it a successful two days for his Bennetts Suzuki team.

Iddon suffered a broken fibula in his right leg in a first-lap crash at Brands Hatch less than six weeks ago but didn't let the injury prevent him from riding at the Norfolk circuit.

The 30-year-old has completed a full test programme at Snetterton working on base set-up improvements with his Suzuki GSX-R1000. Iddon says he was a little hesitant to test while still recovering from the injury but feels it was a productive two days.

"The leg was loads better. I was still pretty nervous standing on pit wall before we got going but it was as good as it needs to be and I was back to a normal position on the bike," Iddon said. "We had a lot to try over both days and Josh [Waters] and I worked them between us and everyone in the team worked really hard."

Iddon ended the second day tenth on the timesheet with his team-mate Waters 12th.

"There was a lot of effort put in and we got through a loads. It's going to take the guys a lot of time to go over all the notes. We weren't working towards a setting for Snetterton but for an improved base-setting, and that's the plan for Knockhill too in a couple of weeks."

Iddon's team manager Jack Valentine echoed his rider's comments and feels they've made strong steps forward with the Suzuki engine which has lacked outright performance in the first three rounds of the season.

"This was a solid test for us and we got through a lot of the things that we wanted to try over the two days," Valentine said. "We went there to evaluate a number of different things and post some consistent lap times, and we know have a good base-setting to work with. Engine-wise everyone in the team is really happy and I can't fault the performance of the GSX-R1000s and the work Yoshimura FWD has done."

Bennetts Suzuki is moving on to Knockhill for further BSB tests next month before returning to Snetterton for round four of the 2015 championship on the 19-21 June.
