Xavier Simeon continued to make progress on the penultimate day of testing in Jerez on Wednesday, finishing as high as 3 rd on the second session of the day. LCR E-Team rider Niccolo Canepa put himself in the top five in the same session.
Both riders aim to make even further improvement tomorrow and are determined to finish higher up the rankings.
Satisfied with their results, both LCR riders have one more day to test the MotoE™ Energica Ego Corsa. The final day of the first of two Tests to be held in Circuito de Jerez-Ángel Nieto, takes place on Thursday.
Niccolò Canepa – 7th
(1’48.615 – Best Lap)
” I am satisfied about today’s test. I improved a lot from yesterday, so I am really happy. I tested a few items that Energica and Michelin brought to us.
It’s really interesting to see the development that we are having on the bike. I can say I like everything they’ve brought, so it’s a good improvement.
Tomorrow we have some ideas to change something more on the setting to try and close the gap, but I am quite satisfied now. We are in 7th place, which is quite good, and we are working well.
The weather here is still amazing, so we have the opportunity to do one more full day of testing and this is great for me.“
Xavier Simeon – 4th

” Today has been quite better than yesterday, I rode 1 second faster than the first day and improved in the overall classification. In the last session, we made quite a big modification on the bike, that I felt was better. I could ride more aggressive and more constant and did better lap times, so I was quite satisfied with that.
For sure, we still can improve because they went 5 tenths faster than us, so there is room to improve. And we will try to work to make this improvement.
At the moment, I am enjoying and trying to improve in every session.“
