CRUTCHLOW COMPLETES LONG DAY OF TESTING IN JEREZ

LCR Honda rider Cal Crutchlow was back out on the Circuito de Jerez today following the disappointment of Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix. Crutchlow and the rest of the MotoGP class took the chance to carry out a day of testing in southern Spain ahead of the next round of the championship in France which takes place in just under two weeks’ time.
The Briton saw his hopes of another good result dashed yesterday when he crashed out of the race on lap six - although thankfully he walked away unharmed. The 31-year-old certainly showed no ill effects from the fall on Monday, racking up a total of 70 laps aboard his RC213V as he tested various settings on the Honda.
The LCR man finished the day in seventh place on the timesheets, but more importantly believes some valuable progress has been made ahead of the next round in Le Mans.

#35 Crutchlow – (7th – 1’39.319)
“Today was a long day, we tested all through lunchtime and we had many things that we wanted to try on small runs. We were not testing any new parts, just what we were running over the weekend to see if could improve and overall it was quite positive. Our pace was good, the lap times were consistently fast – in the low 40s – which was good and it was hotter today.
“We’re pleased with the way the team worked. Our electronic engineer had some late nights here and he had a busy day again, but we’re happy with what we’ve done and we can now focus on getting a positive result in Le Mans.”
