Successful Second Pre-Season Test For Josh Waters at Guadix

Posted:

Josh Waters has completed a second successful pre-season test in the Spanish sunshine, with the Halsall Suzuki team spending three days lapping the Guadix circuit aboard his GSX-R1000 in preparation for this year's MCE British Superbike Championship.

After a positive shakedown test last week at Cartagena, the team has continued work on improving the bike's base-setting and also ran a number of race simulations, making sure both the Australian, Waters and team-mate Christian Iddon have a competitive and consistent package for the opening round at Donington Park next month.

Iddon was lapping consistently in the low 1:13s over the course of his best race runs, while Waters was 0.7 seconds off the best time, but improved his lap time with every change the mechanics made to his GSX-R, showing that the team is moving in the right direction with just one test remaining before the season-opener.

"We worked through a fair bit of stuff at this test." Waters who worked toward improving his base-setting at a circuit that shares similarities to Donington Park, commented.

"It's a different circuit to Cartagena but we've got some ideas to take to Donington. We've improved the mapping, which was one key area of focus for us, and I've got to know the team more and more. We're working well toward the last test back in the UK."

Waters and the team will now head back to the UK and continue preparations ahead of the final pre-season test at Donington Park, which takes place on March 26th, with the season-opener at the same venue on April 4-6th.
