SPANISH ROUND | SUNDAYOctober 30, 2023
MALAYSIAN GP | FRIDAYNovember 10, 2023
Two days of private testing at the “Circuito Jerez de la Frontera Angel Nieto” concluded yesterday, bringing a definitive close to the memorable 2023 WorldSBK season for the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team.
The weather was not particularly favorable, allowing Alvaro Bautista only a few laps on Day 1, moreover on a track in less than optimal conditions due to some very wet patches.
The same scenario unfolded on Day-2, during which the reigning World Champion of WorldSBK, entered the track only at the beginning of the afternoon session.
Alvaro started work on the set-up he will have to adopt in the 2024 season after the introduction of the new weight balance regulation. The Spanish rider finished with a time of 1’39.962, without attempting the time attack.
His season, however, does not end here. Bautista, in fact, will be flying to Malaysia next week, for the MotoGP Wild Card aboard the Ducati Desmosedici GP of the Aruba.it Racing team.

“We have done a lot of work on the new weight balance and it is clear that there is a lot of work to do in the future before the start of next season. The positive thing is that we gathered a lot of data this afternoon so we can find effective solutions this winter. Now we go to Malaysia for the MotoGP Wild Card with the aim of having as much fun as we have had this season in WorldSBK.“
