    Test Metzeler: Day 2 – Rain?!

    Light rain here in Cartagena which is a surprise after yesterday’s great weather but this hasn’t stopped the enthusiasm from our blogger and dealer test riders. It has also shown the all round abilities of the Metzeler Interact family of tyres in different conditions.

    Yesterday’s track action was topped off by some sweeping mountain roads and a café stop by the sea, pictures from that as below.


    The journalists found the comparative tests very useful through the three different tyres from the Interact range (Racetec K3, Sportec M5 and Roadtec Z8).


    It’s been a great experience to share stories with Metzeler staff, journalists, dealers and bloggers from around the world.

    We’re here at the Cartagena race circuit in Southern Spain with UK journalists testing the Interact range (Racetec K3, Sportec M5 and Roadtec Z8). So far a fantastic atmosphere, beautiful weather and a stunning array of bikes and tyres to be tested. We even have a DJ here in the pit box!



    Very informative technical presentation here at the hotel last night, followed by an early night to prepare for the start at the track today.


    The guys are out on track now testing the M5 and K3 tyres on a variety of bikes including the awesome BMW S1000R, Kawasaki ZX-10R and other Superbikes.


    Later we will set out on some fantastic roads on an even wider variety of machines to test all the tyres on local tarmac.


    More updates as we get them……

    PS: It’s only 10 o clock and 20 degrees already!
