First Suter-BMW test considered 'successful'

“The weight, or lack of it, is impressive and the handling has been pretty much spot on from the start of the test; it feels a bit like a more powerful Moto2 machine in a lot of ways. This week we've taken the first small steps on what will be a fairly long journey, I'm excited to be a part of it and I'm looking forward to seeing how the bike turns out at the end of the journey.

“I've got the easy job really, riding the bike, it's all the clever people around me who will be taking on responsibility for development, but they've certainly done an impressive job so far."

Marc VDS Moto2 rider Scott Redding had been pencilled in to ride the bike on day three, but a crash during Moto2 testing on day two would land him in hospital and out of the test. The Briton high-sided out of the final turn, but his trip to hospital would merely be a precautionary one.

@ Bob Buttamasangy. I thought this topic was a discussion about the Marc VDS Suter-BMW test,nothing to do with Flossi. Is it an Australian thing ,where if you can't find anything positive to post you have to post a load of kangaroo sh-t.

Didn't think it would take bob butman long to type a anti rossi post. When your bitter and jealous like that your life must be so difficult. Feel sorry for the people around you and for backing a loser. Someone who misses races cos he can't eat a bowl of cereal with milk must of been hard for you to fathom. Anyway, lets just ignore his posts and comment on the sport we like and the prospects of new riders and machines on the grid. Eskil Suter obviously has talent when it comes to designing a well balanced chassis. When they finally have a engine to produce the power, its going to be interesting to see how the chassis responds to the braking and most off all the power delivery. Also BMW probably will come up with a decent traction control system. Exciting times in 2012 and hopefully we will get to see a 20 plus grid. Lets hope more chassis development companies take not and start there own development.
