Estrella Galicia 0,0 Moto3 run 2020 frame at two-day private test

Estrella Galicia 0,0 held a two-day private test in Valencia, Spain on Wednesday and Thursday, with Sergio Garcia Dols and Ryusei Yamanaka getting acquainted with their new 2020 spec frames.
Both riders made the most of their available track time, riding from 10:00am to 5:00pm on both days.
The weather was favourable for testing, held under clear skies with temperatures of around 20°C and no adverse wind.
The Estrella Galicia 0,0 Moto3 time will have a further private test on February 10th and 11th, at the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto.
SERGIO GARCÍA DOLS – “We are in a good position to keep improving”
Sergio Garcia Dols was coming back to the track where he concluded 2019 in style, winning the Valencian GP last season.
In addition to familiarising himself with the bike that he will ride in 2020, Garcia Dols focused his first day efforts on working on multiple combinations for his suspension settings.
On Thursday he strengthened his pace and optimised his setup, showing that he is prepared to begin his sophomore season strongly.
“The purpose of this test was to ride again after a time away. We dedicated our time to this mainly during the first day. On the second day we tried different setup solutions. I think we have improved; we have a good pace and we achieved some quick lap times. I think we are in a good position to keep moving improving.”
RYUSEI YAMANAKA – “We have been improving my riding and our understanding of the new Honda”
Japanese rider Ryusei Yamanala starts his first full season in the World Championship in 2020, after having participated as a wildcard in several rounds of the 2019 season.
During Wednesday he had his first contact with the 2020 Honda and continued to get acquainted with his new crew. He would suffer a small crash at Turn 4.
On Thursday, Yamanaka continued to experiment with different setup combinations, but would have another crash at Turn 11 from which he escaped unhurt.
“Over these two days we have worked to find an ideal combination for suspension settings, as well as trying to help me feel comfortable on track. It was difficult, right from the beginning, but we have been improving my riding and our understanding of the new Honda. We must continue working on the bike and my riding style. At Jerez we will continue riding as much as possible.”
