The former SSP300 World Champion has driven five laps in Jerez with the Ninja loaned by Jonathan Rea. Times didn't matter …
Ana Carrasco eventually succeeded in crowning the dream. In Jerez he covered five laps on Jonathan Rea's Kawasaki ZX-10R. The prize test was supposed to take place two weeks in Aragon, but the rain forced the postponement. This time, under the bright sun of Andalusia, the Pink Warrior has finally managed to get on the Superbike that has dominated the World Championship for five years.

The Cannibal was very keen on seeing Ana Carrasco on his bike. Not to say: Ana did the five laps with the ZX-10 R "laboratory" that the World Champion will develop in the two days of testing on this same Spanish track. Half an hour from the start of the most important test in prefiguring 2020, Carrasco could not afford madness. The Kwasaki Racing Team technicians would have been very happy to destroy the Ninja … "The only problem for Ana is the physical dimensions, she is very small to drive a 1000, but I believe that the talent to try ourselves seriously would not be lacking" he commented Jonathan Rea, who also lent her usual chair behind the console of KRT electronic engineers to Ana.
MANU GONZALES WILL PROVER THE SUPERSPORT
Ana Carrasco has gone down in history by winning the WSSP300 World Cup in 2018, the Superbike entry class. In the initial plans of Kawasaki, Manuel Gonzalez should also have taken the award test, a Madrid man who also entered the record list as the youngest world champion, at only 17 years and 52 days. But nothing will happen. Friday November 29 Gonzalez will be in Valencia to make the first taste of the Kawasaki ZX-6R that he could drive in the next World Cup. Little Manuel will have time to indulge in the Superbike. Maybe full time, and not just for the prize …
