    Airwaves Ducati riders Leon Haslam and Gregorio Lavilla finished 1st and 3rd quickest in the official BSB test at Silverstone today. The pairing were consistently quick at the 2.213 mile Northamptonshire circuit across all three sessions during the day and finished with quickest lap times of 1:26.684s and 1:27.895s respectively. The team were pleased to build on the progress made last week at Cadwell Park and tested more settings on the Airwaves Ducati 999F04s along with further Dunlop tyres and new Q8Oils lubricants. With many of the main BSB contenders attending the test, the Airwaves Ducati squad will be in confident mood when the season resumes on 19th August at Silverstone.

    Airwaves Ducati Team Manager, Colin Wright, was pleased with the progress the team have made: "We worked particularly on gearing and achieved a lot in the three sessions, building on what we completed at Cadwell last week. The guys are very comfortable on the bikes and familiarised themselves with the two tracks that we are visiting later this month. In Gregorio's case this is good news and means we can arrive at the circuits looking to win the races. Leon's performance at both tests has been excellent and will boost his confidence for the remainder of the season. The whole team can't wait for the racing to resume and we'll be raring to challenge for victories in the remaining five rounds".

    Leon was delighted with his performance: "I'm really happy to be quick all day and consistently fastest on race tyres in the three sessions, the same as last week at Cadwell Park. I've been looking forward to the last few rounds of the season and this will give me a lot of confidence for the races. I lapped just under the lap record and completed 84 laps on various tyres so I will be completely ready when the season resumes".

    Gregorio was pleased to set such a quick time: "I've always thought I would be quicker at this style of circuit and I'm pleased with the time. The bike feels good and we've worked hard on various settings so that we're ready for the races coming up. I'll have a bit of time off now and arrive at Silverstone ready to challenge for victories".

    The BSB season resumes on the 19th August at Silverstone with the ninth round in the Championship.
