Schrötter and Moto2 rookie Alcoba set course for 2022 in Jerez
The LIQUI MOLY Intact GP team concluded the 2021 racing year with a positive test at the Circuito de Jerez. Marcel Schrötter completed many testing laps for Dunlop, while Jeremy Alcoba made his debut in the Moto2 class.
Marcel Schrötter, who finished tenth in the world championship just a week earlier, already started to get the 2022 season underway this Monday in dry conditions in southern Spain. In the process, he did important work for Moto2 tyre supplier Dunlop. It was a matter of subjecting new sets of tyres to a long distance test. For this purpose, the 28-year-old completed three race simulations within one day, with noc focus on set-up and times. At the end of a productive test, the LIQUI MOLY Intact GP rider completed a total of 92 laps, which marked his send-off into the well-deserved winter break.
Jeremy Alcoba stayed a day longer in Jerez to gain extensive experience in the Moto2 category and to familiarise himself with his new crew in the German racing team. For the young Spaniard, the test was mainly about riding as many kilometres as possible. Impressed by the stronger power as well as acceleration of his new Kalex bike, the 20-year-old completed a full 139 laps in two days, starting a new chapter in his career that will continue in February with the first pre-season tests for 2022.
