Positive Portimao Test Results for Sofuoglu and Faccani

Posted:

Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) and his new team-mate Marco Faccani made an encouraging re-start to their preparations for the 2015 FIM Supersport World Championship season during a two-day test at Portimao between 21 and 22 January.

After some changeable weather the final afternoon proved dry and the team made great progress during what was an intense final period at the undulating Portuguese track.

Sofuoglu worked on finding the best engine and set-up specifications on his Ninja ZX-6R, as he looks to take his fourth world championship in the WSS class with his new team.

‰ÛÏIt was a little cold and there was some rain so that gave us difficult conditions at the beginning." Sofuoglu stated. "In the last afternoon we really started to ride the bike and found some good points.

"We are still working in many areas. We have two different engine specs and I am still working out which one is best but we have another test in Jerez to work it out. I hope we have two days of better weather there so we can spend all the time on the bike.

"The team is working hard and we really want to win. They did not have any holidays because they have been working all the time. I am really happy to see what they brought to this test.‰Û
