Lack of test time leaves Rea frustrated at Aragon

'We tried some new brake parts at the test and found an improvement in both consistency and performance, so that was positive' - Jonathan Rea
Jonathan Rea was left wanting more at the conclusion of two days of testing at Motorland Aragon in Spain.

Day one of the World Superbike test on Wednesday was hit by inclement weather and the circuit only dried out late in the morning on Thursday.

Rea, whose Honda team shared the circuit with Ducati, Kawasaki and BMW, admitted he was 'a little frustrated' as the Ulsterman now looks to the final shakedown at Jerez later this month prior to the winter break.

“It was a little frustrating because we lost the first day and had to wait until late morning before we could get out on day two,” said Rea.

“We tried some new brake parts at the test and found an improvement in both consistency and performance, so that was positive.

“The new swingarm worked OK with the new 17-inch wheels but we still need to do a bit of fine-tuning with some other new chassis parts that are coming.

“We have some other things to test at Jerez, plus the new electronics, which I'm looking forward to.”
