|Moriwaki Althea Honda Team concludes official testing at Portimao.

MORNING SESSION: 1’43.544 – AFTERNOON SESSION: 1’44.003 COMBINED: 1’43.544 (P17)
“This track is quite difficult, and it is not easy to set good lap times. Having said that, I tried my best over these two days and ultimately, we were able to improve our settings and our lap times but honestly not by as much as we would have liked. Anyway, all in all, it has been a good experience”.
MORNING SESSION: 1’44.474 – AFTERNOON SESSION: 1’46.087 COMBINED: 1’44.474 (P19)
“I really enjoyed these two days of testing. We tried many different settings and even if I did not make any really big improvements in terms of lap times, I feel that the potential is there to do a good job with the bike’s setup when the race weekend arrives. So, I look forward to coming back in September for the Portuguese round.”
