SUTER SWITCH IM­PROVES KENT’S PACE AT JEREZ

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

While the Motogp field were in ac­tion at Va­len­cia, a num­ber of Moto2 and Moto3 teams headed to Jerez for their first out­ing of the 2017 sea­son, in­clud­ing Brit Danny Kent get­ting his first run out on the new Suter chas­sis that he hopes will re-ig­nite his ca­reer next year.

Strug­gling through­out the 2016 sea­son to come to grips with the Kalex, a sit­u­a­tion not aided by a dif­fi­cult year in the team that even­tu­ally saw him split with long-term crew chief Peter Bom ahead of Va­len­cia, the change to Swiss ma­chin­ery looks to be pay­ing off for the for­mer world cham­pion, who fin­ished the two-day test in fourth place, only 0.3s off fastest man Takaaki Nak­agami.
