Luke Power satisfied with Spanish shakedown test ahead of sophomore WorldSSP season

 In News

Australian Luke Power’s 2024 World Supersport Championship season is officially underway.

The teenager was on track for the first time this year with his Motozoo ME AIR team at the Circuito de Jerez in southern Spain, ending the three-day test aboard his new MV Agusta F800 content with both the work done and the lap time achieved.

Having never ridden at the Spanish venue the opening day was spent learning the track as well as getting comfortable aboard the three-cylinder Italian machine that he will campaign in WorldSSP this season.

Improving throughout the day, Luke lapped significantly faster on day two, but it was the third and final day where things really started to click. A fastest lap time achieved on a busy track could have been even more impressive had it not been for a red flag towards the end of the day that cut short the on-track time available. Nevertheless, the #68 rider heads back to Australia more than satisfied with what has been achieved and optimistic of the kind of season he could have once racing gets underway in a few weeks.

Luke also showcased the latest Rainers boots, a carbon helmet supplied by new helmet partner Premier Helmets and a custom testing suit supplied by leather sponsor 4SR.

Luke Power:

“I am really happy with my first feelings on the new bike. I was immediately excited by the feeling and the potential it gave me on my first run on Saturday and after three days of learning the bike and the track I am happy with our work and confident going into the season. It was great to reunite with my team again and to get to know and work with my new team mate Federico Caricasulo. We worked hard during the test which we can be satisfied with, and I am looking forward to showcasing our potential soon in Barcelona.”
