Redding likens Navarra to BSB tracks after two-day test

| | WorldSBK

WorldSBK title contender Scott Redding has likened the Navarra track to the British Superbike circuits on which he spent a year riding after a two-day test.

The Aruba Ducati man will have a slight advantage over rival and six-time champion Jonathan Rea when the circus lands at the track, which is situated near Pamplona.

“It was an extremely positive two days. The weather conditions helped us to do a very intense job. The feeling with the bike has been really good and the race pace has been extremely positive,” said Redding, who completed 170 laps.

‘If I have to be honest I had a lot of fun riding on this circuit that reminds me a lot of the BSB ones. We are ready to race and I can’t wait to be in Aragon.”

Team-mate Michael Rinaldi added: “It was a very productive day. Compared to yesterday we made a big step forward and so I’m very happy also because we were able to improve on a not easy track.

“Now, however, I just want to think about Aragon. In the next few days, I’ll be training, trying to relax and stay calm in order to arrive at the first race of the season in the best possible condition.”
