With one week to go before the start of the World Championship season, for the second consecutive day Alex Rins and Alex Marquez completed the testing workload provided by HRC for the new NSF250RW. Emilio Alzamora's proteges continue taking steps forward, lowering lap times and improving their feeling with the bike. Today Rins finished tenth on the timesheets and Marquez eleventh.

After adding 63 and 66 laps, respectively, to their tally for the preseason, Rins and Marquez continued to cut tenths off their best times. They did so whilst establishing a base setup for their Moto3 bike. The 2013 World Championship runner-up reduced his best lap by over half a second from yesterday and finished the day with a best time of 1:47.217 -0.958 off the day's fastest rider, Jack Miller. Marquez was 0.970 back, with a time of 1:47.229.

The test concludes tomorrow with the last day of preseason before the visit to Losail, Qatar, where the World Championship will begin next week.

Alex Rins - 1:47.217, 63 laps, 279 km.

"Today we tried a lot of things. We've received a lot of parts for these three days and we have focused on working with the chassis and suspension. So far we have not found the perfect setup, but tomorrow we have planned more tests and we'll see if we can find the best configuration for the bike. Today my wrist did not bother me too much -when you don't think about it you do not notice the pain".

Alex Marquez - 1:47.229 , 66 laps, 292 km.

"Today we tried quite a few chassis adjustments. The first session did not go very well because we were analysing many things, but the second was a little better. We had a better feel and I was much more comfortable on the bike. The last session was also a bit hard, but this is normal because we are testing some things and discarding others, which is important. Tomorrow we have to work with our mind on the races, which is where the points are won".
