Octo Pramac Racing’s 2017 MotoGP season ends up today with the second day of private testing at Jerez. An extraordinary season that saw Danilo Petrucci win 4 podiums (Mugello, Assen, Misano, Japan) and four front row start (Barcelona, Germany, Assen, Japan). And the great novelty of the 2018 season will be represented by Jack Miller, who already proved to be at ease on the Ducati Desmosedici GP in the official tests in Valencia last week.
The two days of private testing for Octo Pramac Racing began yesterday at the Jerez circuit where most MotoGP teams were present. The indications of the first day were positive with the 8th place for Petrux (52 laps completed) and the 9th position of Jack (62 laps completed).
In the second day both Petrucci and Miller worked mainly on set up and feeling. Despite a bad crash in the morning – fortunately without any consequences for the rider – Petrux returned to the track in the afternoon, improving his Thursday’s lap-time and finishing sixth. Miller finished in 9th position after intense work that saw him complete 65 laps.
