Shane Faber in good Form at Cartagena Test.
In ideal weather conditions held at the Southern Spanish track, the Somerset youngster adapted to the technical track from the first day, posting good times on his Aprilia RS125.
Organised by trackday specialists No Limits, the event was held to allow the half dozen Aprilia Superteen Challenge competitors to get down to some serous testing. Perfect weather conditions assisted then over three days commencing 27th. January.
Twelve year old Shane from Henstridge in Somerset is continuing to ride under the management of JDF Racing in the 2014 Aprilia series. Faber was, by the second day, fastest of the group achieving low 1.57 lap times. Apart from a minor tip off on day one Faber learnt the technical track quickly impressing onlookers by his corner speed on his Magnum Motorsport tuned Aprilia. By the final day however Trystan Finocchiaro had posted the fastest lap of the three day session to push Faber back to second fastest Superteen rider.
Spending valuable tracktime with former Grand Prix star Simon Crafar, Faber put into practice the guidance provided by Crafar who was impressed with the level of improvement in lap times over the three day test. Faber is to compete in the Superteen series with a possible Wild card ride in the Moriwaki Junior Cup later in the year.
John Davies "Shane is improving quickly and we hope to put that to good use in the Aprilia Challenge over the coming season, to ultimately enable him to enter the Moriwaki Junior Cup at a reasonably competitive level. Honda car dealer Ash Honda of Yeovil have provided the support to purchase a refurbished Junior Cup MD250H Moriwaki machine which he will practice on at the appropriate time."
