Brayden Elliott and Mission Racing have successfully completed four days of testing on two world famous circuits in Spain; Valencia and Motorland Aragon throughout the week commencing the 12th of March.
After a shake down at Valencia, where Elliott rode the new BMW S 1000 RR for the first time, experiencing a new team and getting use to a new track, it was on to Motorland Aragon, where the real work began.
Despite some minor technical problems on the first day at Argon, testing was a great success with Elliott feeling comfortable on the bike, and gaining the most valuable thing – confidence on the machinery.
Elliott made comment in the conclusion of the four-day test stating “Overall my first experience on the BMW S 1000 RR and with Mission Racing was extremely positive.”
“I instantly felt comfortable on the machinery and was able to adapt a lot of the key qualities of the BMW to suit my riding style, as well as work on those areas which are less strong for me.
“Beyond spending time on the bike, a big focus of mine was to be able to spend valuable time away from the circuit to get to know the team and gain trust before the opening round of the season. Throughout our time in Spain we had plenty of time to all be together as a team, and form a family-like friendship.
“As far as the bikes goes, of course there were a few teething problems, which always comes with a new bike, but thankfully across the four days we were able to overcome these and develop a clear direction which we believe will help reach the goals we have set for the opening round of the season,” Elliott concluded
Before the opening round of the 2018 British Superstock 1000 Championship begins, Elliott will test the BMW S 1000 RR at Donington Park, where he will return to on March 31st to begin his BSB charge with Mission Racing.
