TAKA PLEASED TO FINALLY MAKE TRACK RETURN AT JEREZ TEST
LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider Takaaki Nakagami was delighted to be back on his RC213V as MotoGP action finally returned on Wednesday. The premier class enjoyed an official test day at the Jerez circuit in preparation for this weekend’s Grand Prix at the same venue as the paddock regroups following the delay to the 2020 season caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The riders took part in two 90-minute sessions over the course of the day, with strong sunshine ensuring scorching conditions in southern Spain. Nakagami admitted it took some time to reacquaint himself with his Honda machine in the morning, but was pleased with the progress he eventually made as he finished 14th and 15th in the two sessions respectively.
