Sandi gets to grips with Pedercini Kawasaki

'We worked really hard on the bike here in Almeria and I think it's just going to get better and better' - Federico Sandi
Pedercini Kawasaki World Superbike recruit Federico Sandi benefitted from a dry track at Almeria in Spain as the Italian rider completed a two-day test.

Sandi was joined by the team's Superstock riders, Federico Dittadi and Lorenzo Savadori, as the trio got to grips with their ZX-10R machines at the Spanish venue.

After making sporadic appearances in the World Superbike series over the years, Sandi is set for his first full season in the class in 2013.

In all, he has made eight WSBK starts, most recently on the Grillini BMW at Misano last season.

Earlier in January, Pedercini Kawasaki confirmed that Alexander Lundh would remain in the team after sufficiently impressing during a four-round stint at the end of the 2012 season, the Swedish rider scoring points in four of the six races he started.

However, Lundh does not appear to have participated in the test at Almeria, with no mention of the 26-year-old in an official press release issued by the team.

Sandi completed over 100 laps in dry, albeit breezy conditions at Almeria and declared himself 'happy' following the two-day shakedown.

“The whole test has gone really well for me. It was very important to work with my new team and I'm very happy because I immediately found a good feeling with all of them,” he said.

“We worked really hard on the bike here in Almeria and I think it's just going to get better and better.

“There is still a lot to do but the outcome is already very good. I'm really looking forward to next test in Phillip Island to be able to start the 2013 Superbike championship in the best possible way.”

The final World Superbike test will be held at Phillip Island in Australia on February 18 and 19 prior to the opening world championship round there on February 24.
