Brad Binder sets to work at Jerez as 2020 season finally gets underway
MotoGP™ engines finally fired back into life today for the final 2020 pre-season run at a scorching Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto. The brief track outings for the MotoGP, Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes preface the Gran Premio Red Bull de España at the same site this weekend.
Brad Binder reacclimatized around the Andalusian layout and for the first time with the ’20 KTM RC16 after making his very first circulations at the 2019 winter test. The South African logged a quickest effort of 13th in the afternoon (18th for the day); just 1.2 seconds from the top slot.
“Today was quite OK. This morning was good, and I felt much more at home with the bike straightaway. It’s a physical racetrack and I had some issues and messed up quite a lot of laps which didn’t help but had a longer run. It was nice to do a good few laps in a row just to get comfortable and to get an idea of what Sunday is going to be like. I have made good steps forward and I am much more ready for the first grand prix.”
