Althea test Superstock 1000 Ducati 1199 Panigale R
Team Althea Racing has concluded a two-day test session, taking its Ducati Panigale R on track for the first time in its 2015 Stock configuration.
The two riders representing Team Althea Racing for the 2015 season, Raffaele De Rosa and Luca Salvadori, were extremely pleased with the Ducati, concluding these two days on the Italian track of Vallelunga in a positive fashion.
Despite some traffic on track, the riders and Team were able to work well, gradually finding the right feeling with the bike. Many solutions, both technical and engine-related, were tested and both Luca and Raffaele are enthusiastic and satisfied with this first exit on board the new bike.
The 1199 Panigale R faces a very tough high-level championship, with a lot of competition, but Team Althea Racing’s two riders have shown themselves to be well prepared physically and mentally and will arrive at the first race extremely motivated.
The first round of the Stock 1000 FIM Cup will take place on the beautiful Spanish circuit located in Alcaniz, in the Aragon area, on 12 April, and it is there that this exciting, highly anticipated challenge will get underway for Team Althea Racing, its riders and the new 1199 Panigale R in its 2015 version.
