With intermittent opportunities to test set-up between bouts of rain on Friday, the majority of laps were completed on Thursday during dry, sunny weather before a storm came in at just after 16.30 local time (CEST).
Razgatlıoğlu posted the second-quickest time of the test just behind his main championship rival Alvaro Bautista (Ducati), but the focus for Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK’s #54 crew was on race pace simulation ahead of the fifth round of the FIM Superbike World Championship early next month as well as evaluating new parts from Yamaha’s European R&D facility in Milan.
Teammate Locatelli also had the opportunity to test new items, including the fifth “test bike” supplied by Yamaha’s engineers, but struggled slightly on Thursday to find the right feeling with the increased surface grip compared to the race in Barcelona last weekend. After set-up changes, the #55 rider leaves with a solid base on his Yamaha R1 WorldSBK to start the race weekend strongly in three weeks’ time, taking place on 2-4 June.
Both riders completed a small number of wet laps on Friday, in order to further refine their rain set-ups and confidence in different conditions in case of stormy weather at the upcoming race events.
