Luke Mossey has been given his first experience on the Quattro Plant Teccare Kawasaki in dry conditions at a four-day shakedown event in Cartagena, Spain as he prepares for the upcoming British Superbikes Championship season.

The 22-year-old rider was delighted with the progress made in Spain after using the four days on track to get used to the Kawasaki RX-10R. The Cambridge rider graduated from British Supersport after finishing seventh overall in 2014 with two race wins and is readying himself for a debut year in Superbikes.

"It was great to get out on track in Spain and have a bit of a shakedown test to get the year started," Mossey said. "It was my first time riding the Superbike in the dry - I have only ridden some laps in the wet and I loved it. I couldn't have asked for much more."

Mossey will join team-mate Howie Mainwaring at the team's next test in March at the Almeria circuit in Spain before a second test at Donington Park.

The Quattro Plant Kawasaki team enjoyed a successful first season in British Superbikes, with Dan Linfoot reaching the Showdown for an eventual fifth place and Mainwaring taking a surprise victory at Brands Hatch in the final round.

"I was just trying to get in as many miles as possible so I can get used to the bike so when we get to the official tests in March it's not a massive shock for me," he added. "We have had a brilliant test and I am really getting to grips with it now.

"We have done more than what we set out to achieve and now I can go back on a positive note ready for the official tests. I know it's a learning year but I know how good the bike is and I hope we can get some good results for myself and the team."
