We have already out in demanding conditions and brakes have demonstrated high performance, allowing drive thoroughly with full confidence. With regard to the change, it is very easy to use and ratio changes are perfect. I also liked a lot the engine, high performance thanks to its high torque. We made progress in each session and that's really exciting! "Said Craig Breen after testing.

We accumulate miles despite the variable weather conditions and started to hone in on the technical solutions. "Said Alexis Avril, technical manager.
