PETRONAS Raceline Malaysia’s Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah enjoyed a fruitful test at the Aragon Circuit following the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez last weekend.
The special arrangement was to test new suspension parts for the Moto2 bike and the outcome has been positive where Hafizh could circulate the hilly Aragon circuit consistently and faster than his personal best.
The new internal suspension parts has also improved the Kalex’s rear traction, making it possible to steer the bike quicker into corners.
With the Moto2 Championship getting more competitive, the new suspension parts would be a real boost for Hafizh to keep scoring points in the upcoming Grand Prix.
Next round of the Moto2 World Championship will be at the legendary Le Mans circuit next weekend.Hafizh:
I am pretty satisfied with the outcome from the two day test at Aragon. The new parts particularly gave me stronger traction at the rear wheel and I could steer in the turn a little faster as well. I am hoping for a good weekend for next round in France.
We are pleased with the test and the results has been encouraging. We hope to make good of it in the next leg at Le Mans. Hafizh seems to like the new set up that helps solve the issues that has been troubling him in the last few races. If Hafizh can up his pace a few tenths, it would be very interesting to see how far he can move up the ranks.
