Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK riders, Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes, were unable to partake in a test session set in Jerez, Spain yesterday after rain affected the whole thing. Both riders and teams were expecting some dry conditions to develop their latest 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR, but wet conditions arrived and said, “Not today, fellas.”
The decision was taken as the new WorldSBK regulations limit the number of private test sessions each team can take throughout the season. This is why the Kawasaki Racing Team doesn’t want to waste it by starting with a wet weather development.
Both Rea and Lowes have provided some crucial data for the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR in Jerez, but they were looking to test some new parts and setting this time around which could make a world of difference in their dry weather performances once the 2021 season starts.
It is true that they have a lot of things that need to be considered to be able to defend their titles in this season’s WorldSBK championship. Other manufacturers like Ducati, Yamaha, and BMW will be bringing the heat, especially the German manufacturer and their highly-anticipated BMW M 1000 RR.
The first 2021 WorldSBK round is scheduled at the end of April at the TT Assen Circuit, The Netherlands. Stay tuned for more updates.
