Crescent Suzuki Concludes Portimao Test

Posted:

Crescent Suzuki WSB has concluded its first pre-season test of 2015 at the Autodromo International do Algarve after rain halted proceedings for much of the two-day event.

Inconsistent weather brought showers and cold winds for most of Wednesday, hampering progress and allowing racers Alex Lowes and Randy de Puniet just a handful of laps.

Today looked to be more of the same, as a wet track greeted the team first-thing this morning. However, the sun finally ventured-out this afternoon, allowing Lowes and de Puniet some much-needed track-time aboard their 2015-spec Yoshimura-powered GSX-R1000s.

Lowes completed around 50 dry-laps of the Portuguese circuit - setting a best unofficial time of 1‰Ûª44.0 - while his new French team-mate circulated for around 40 laps, with a best of 1‰Ûª45.7, while learning the track lay-out.

Despite initial expectations regarding the weather conditions, the Crescent Suzuki team completed a detailed programme - with the 2015-spec engine working well - and allowing testing to extend to new clutch parts and rider set-up.

The Crescent Suzuki team now travels to Jerez, in Southern Spain, to continue the progress during its second and final private test scheduled for 10:00hrs local time (09:00GMT) on Monday January 26th.
