2015 Aprilia RAcing - logoJerez – After putting the best time of the third practice session on the sheets, Jordi Torres rode his Aprilia RSV4 RF to the second row on the grid with the fifth best time in the Jerez de la Frontera Superpole. The Spanish rider, lying fifth in the Championship standings and the best rookie of 2015, has everything in order to be one of the main protagonists in the two races tomorrow, not an easy task given the extremely narrow gaps during all the practice sessions.

On the other side of the Aprilia Racing Team – Red Devils garage, Leon Haslam’s number 91 had a bit more difficulty in the decisive session. The English rider demonstrated a good pace throughout practice, even on a used tyre, doing some excellent work in view of the race. But the higher temperatures in the afternoon (45 degrees on the tarmac) created a few puzzlers for Leon, who was unable to repeat the performance from the previous qualifiers in the Superpole session. This means that he will have to make up ground in the race, after he and his mechanics analyse the best solutions to implement on his RSV4.

Jordi Torres: “This is a good weekend for us, even if I am still a bit on the edge with the front end. When I try to push hard the smallest mistake becomes fatal, but overall I have a good pace. Starting from fifth place isn’t bad. The important thing will be to stick with the best from the start and battle with them. The podium isn’t my first goal. I want to stay with the leading group flag to flag, learning from the riders in front and then the results will come automatically.”

Leon Haslam: “After FP3 I was quite pleased. I rode race length with the tyres, maintaining a good pace and putting my “ideal time” on the top of the sheets. In the afternoon on the other hand, we had a lot of difficulties with the higher temperatures. We need to think of something for tomorrow. If I can find that feeling I had in FP3 we’ll be able to do well despite the fourth row start.”
