Mateusz Korobacz had a successful, one day test onboard the Moriwaki Moto2 motorcycle at Aragon in Spain together with the QMMF Racing Team.
The 20-year-old from Poznan in Poland, who currently leads the national Junior Superstock 600 Chanpionship, spent last Wednesday at the Spanish Motorland Aragon circuit, where he completed more than 30 laps onboard the QMMF’s Moriwaki Moto2 machine.
Having tested at Aragon earlier in the season onboard a Superstock 600 bike, Korobacz left the Moto2 test impressed by the Moriwaki prototype, despite lapping in air temperatures above 40 degrees.
The test was possible due to a short summer break for the MotoGP and Moto2 Championships, with round 11 next weekend at the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic. The QMMF Racing Team, supported by the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation, which also hosts the opening round of the World Championship, Grand Prix for Qatar at the Losail circuit, is managed by Spaniard Luis Solano with riders Ricky Cardus (Spain) and Mashel Al Naimi (Qatar). The Grand Prix of Aragon, round 14 of the MotoGP World Championship, will take place on the 18th of September.
Moto2 machines use Honda CBR600RR engines with 125 HP measured on the rear wheel, with all engines identical for all riders, as well as Dunlop slick tyres. Even if the Moto2 bike only has a dozen or so more horsepower, at 135 kilograms, it’s almost 40 kg lighter than a Superstock 600 machine and offers an almost unlimited amount of chassis setup modifications.
Straight from Aragon, Korobacz returns to Poznan, where he is set to take part in the penultimate round of the Polish Championship, ran together with the Alpe Adria Championship this weekend.
„A Moto2 bike requires a completely different riding style. I’ve almost had to learn how to ride it from a scratch, as different braking points, lines and position on the bike are needed. It’s just something else, but it requires many laps to get a good understanding. We’ve made progress with each lap but there’s still a lot of work to be done. I was very impressed with the handling and how easy the bike changes directions but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to ride. You can do almost everything with chassis setup, so we’ve made changes after every few laps. I wasn’t told my final lap times but that wasn’t important during this test. The important thing is though, that the team was happy with my riding and that we’ve worked together very well. It was an incredible experience.”
„Today’s test was an important experience both for Mateusz and our team. One day is not a lot but we’re quite happy, as knowing it’s not an easy bike, he did very well and was improving with every lap. A Moto2 bike is a pure race machine. Engine is not that powerful but it’s not far off MotoGP when it comes to chassis setup and it takes many laps to get a good understanding.Went but recommended and will blends viagra free sample Jack and etc also when nose.

Lap times were not really important today. With a single-day test, we’re not looking for a lap time but we know where he is comparing to the World Championship riders.”
