World Endurance and European Superstock rider Paul Notman took to the seat of a Foggy Petronas FP1 for two days of testing at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground earlier this week.

Dry conditions on the first day enabled the team to make positive steps forward with scheduled temperature management and engine development work and, although hampered by wet weather on the final day, the team gained valuable data.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed testing for Foggy Petronas Racing and the FP1 is a beautiful bike both in its looks and handling," said 26-year-old Notman. "It's a shame the weather conditions were so wet (on the second day), but I was pleasantly surprised with how much grip the FP1 has in the wet as well as the dry."

This next stage of the FP1's development is to be completed in time for the next round of the Superbike World Championship in two weeks, at Monza's challenging power track.

"We've made significant progress over these two days and are working well with Petronas' engine development team," declared FPR's chief engineer, Steve Thompson. "The results of the engine and cooling developments are very encouraging."

In the opening rounds of this season, FPR race riders Chris Walker and Troy Corser have both achieved a podium finish each.
