Race Manager , Russell Benney, said, "We had five or six elements developed during the off-season that needed more miles and this test has allowed us to see how these will perform. We also wanted to get the riders up to race pace based on 2011's lap times and work on various other elements on the bike, such as the suspension and geometry, so that we are ready to go at the race meeting without making too many changes. To that extent, we have achieved what we came here to do so we're happy."
John McGuinness added, "It's been good to get back together with everybody. It's been a couple of days of team bonding as well getting on the bike. There have been a few positive changes since last year's Bol d'Or and we're heading in the right direction. All four of us have done plenty of laps. Last year I was a bit nervous coming to this meeting, I didn't know the track and I'd never done a 24-hour before but I've got a year under my belt now and it all feels like the norm. We'll be back here in a couple of weeks for the race and hopefully we'll be on it."
Aussie Cameron Donald was back on board after missing the last test with injury, "It's great to be back with the team and get back to work after a long off season. It really feels like a family now and we're all optimistic about the season ahead. We couldn't have asked for a better first test, the sun is shining at a track we're familiar with and we're moving forward. I'm excited about the race in three weeks time.
