One more test will take place in the 2020 calendar year with MotorLand Aragon hosting two days of testing for two MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship teams as Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK and OUTDO Kawasaki TPR take to the track for the final time in 2020. Taking place on Wednesday and Thursday, riders will be able to learn more about their machines during the test for the final track action of the year. Track action begins at 10am CET (GMT+1) each day and comes to a close at 5pm.
Fresh from testing the brand-new Kawasaki ZX-10RR at the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto last week, KRT will be back on track with six-time World Champion Jonathan Rea and teammate Alex Lowes at MotorLand Aragon. Both Rea and Lowes were able to sample the new machine on day two at Jerez and will be hoping to continue to develop their understanding of the machine ahead of the 2021 season.
Lowes will be going into 2021 on the back of a race-winning campaign after he took victory at Phillip Island and will be looking to build on that, as well as his strong end to the season where he took two podiums in the penultimate round at Magny-Cours. Rea heads into 2021 after defending his title again and will be looking to do so yet again as he aims for title number seven. Both Lowes and Rea will be full of confidence after the new bike made an immediate impact at Jerez by topping the timesheets and the duo will hope that form carries on into the two-day MotorLand Aragon test.
They will be joined by Belgian rider Loris Cresson who will test for OUTDO Kawasaki TPR. Cresson made his WorldSBK debut for the team at the season-ending Estoril Round and then tested for the team immediately afterwards, before continuing the partnership at Jerez last week. The team and Cresson will continue to work together throughout the two-day Aragon test as he looks to get acquainted with WorldSBK machinery.
