www.motograndprix.com (http://www.motograndprix.com) & www.motonline.com (http://www.motonline.com) are
showing stories today about the Aprilia RS3's
first shakedown runs at Jerez. It looks tiny!
They say the sound is pure evil. God I hope a
successful season awaits Laconi!

I read that on his last day of testing Laconi
turned a 1'46.4, about 4 seconds off the 500
cc lap record. That, on a bike that had basi-
cally never turned a wheel anywhere before. I
would imagine the record's held by a Biaggi/
Doohan/Rossi type, and there's gotta be about
1-1.5 seconds difference between them in mid-
season form and Regis returning from a winter
lay-off...at least! That track was very green
too, deduct another half-sec probably. Looks
to me like the bike's only off a couple ticks
really after its very first outing! Amazing.
