According to GPOne.com the official press release is coming tomorrow…
Details are sparse but for a number of reasons including Biaggi’s lack of experience with the tires the test is merely for feedback in the quest to better the machine and has no possibility of a future program attached. It further suggests not to load the test with too many expectations.
In addition, GPOne quotes Paolo Ciabatti as saying that Ben Spies will not race in Barcelona but Pirro instead: “That’s right, in Barcelona in place of Ben Spies will race Michele Pirro . We have the parts needed to make it run with the Desmosedici ‘laboratory’ and probably will continue with him. “
