Last day of tests for the Alice Aprilia Racing Team at Brno track where will take place the 10th round of the world championship next august. Three RS Cube bikes on track with Edwards riding 62 laps with a lap time of 2’00”23, Haga (2’01”34 and 50 laps) and the test rider Marcellino Lucchi. Many engagements during the whole day: Edwards concentrated his efforts on the test of the tyres using the chassis already used in the beginning of the season whilst Haga used the new one even if he had to stop his session at 15.30. the Japanese rider flew with his family to Japan for a short vacation. This was the first time ever for Haga with the “evolution” setting.

Project Leader Gigi dall’Igna: “ These two days have been very important for us and for the development of our bikes. We tested different tyres with Michelin finding an interesting solution for the future and the development of the RS Cube will continue. We feel satisfied about the results we had here but we still need to check this performance during the races”. Marcellino Lucchi rode a “special” 2003 Rs Cube with spare parts aimed to develop two things: performance and endurance. The support gave by the Italian rider has been very useful to get important details to be used in the second part of the season. Some new parts for the silencers: the tree riders tested new silencers which will be probably used at Sachsenring during the next GP.
