Mika Kallio to Wildcard KTM RC16 in Valencia Race

Snapshot: We still have time to work before we come to the Valencia race - Kallio

It has been a long time since Red Bull KTM Racing Team has been testing the KTM RC16 and good news is that the Austrian based auto firm is all set to make a wild card entry at the Valencia GP this year.

Few days back the RC16 went through a comprehensive test at Austria’s Red Bull Ring. Pit Beirer, Motorsport Director, KTM congratulated the entire team including Alex Hofmann for the brilliant test results that fuelled up the entire team for the next phase of racing.

Mika Kallio and fellow tester Thomas Luthi rode the KTM RC16 for the very first time against their rivals during a private racing session at the Red Bull Ring circuit, Austria.

Kallio went on to say, “I think everyone can be really satisfied that we’re here with the others. In the end I think the lap times were on a good level, quite good. We tried to follow the others and see how the bike is behaving and where we are losing compared to them.”

“Around two seconds behind the fastest guys, at the moment it’s quite good. We still have time to work before we come to the Valencia race,” Kallio said, confirming the rumours about KTM’s Valencia race debut.
