We are going to calmly analyze the situation, since, having all the permits from the different organizations and being the circumstantial reason, we would like the test to be held this year, after a reasonable time and without getting fully into winter.

We will inform you shortly of the decision we make, we thank you very much for your support in some very difficult moments, but that together we will overcome.

Thank you very much and see you soon."
