Rookie Moto3 race winner Jorge Navarro and new 2016 Estrella Honda team-mate Aron Canet both set a quick pace during their final test of the year at Valencia.

Navarro was the only one of the two riders to go out on track on both days, being credited with the best overall lap time courtesy of a 1m 39.122s during his 186 laps.

"These were two very productive days of testing. We have worked with the parts for 2016, tested different setups and focused mainly on chassis and suspensions," Navarro revealed. "We are very pleased with the results and with the feeling I had on the bike.

"We had very good riding conditions and so I did 100 laps yesterday and 86 today; that helped us to ride fast, get a good pace going and find a compromise. The 2016 Honda is very competitive; there are still aspects where work is needed in order to improve, but I think we can go into February strong.

"After an intense year in which I learned so much, now I get to rest a few days before starting my fitness training plan. I will be following it over the next few months, until we get back on the bike in mid-February".

Canet, riding alongside the World Championship riders for the first time, was just 0.145s behind Tuesday pace setter Brad Binder (KTM) despite limiting his track time due to a healing foot injury.

"This first test with World Championship riders has been very exciting. Yesterday I didn't ride, so today I focused mainly on familiarising myself with my new crew -with whom I will work in 2016," said the CEV star.

"I also checked how I felt on the bike when injured. My foot is getting better despite the crash I had on Sunday, and tomorrow I will visit the doctors in Barcelona again. They will assess how my recovery is evolving and decide what to do to help me recover as soon as possible".
