On the second and last day of official testing at Phillip Island Tom Sykes has not been intimidated by the great pace that Carlos Checa has been setting and in the last two sessions the Briton has prevailed aboard an increasingly competitive Kawasaki ZX-10R. The difference that separated them was only four thousandths, both of them rolling in 1'31.6. It seems that finally the green project is finding stability and a good rhythm, becoming aspiring to give the "surprise" in the first round next Sunday.
Another Ducati 1098R, the one from Jakub SmrzHe also shot very close to the top positions, getting into the club at 1'31. The Czech has been showing talent and being very fast for two seasons and no one can rule him out for the fight for victory in Australia. The last member of this club is Jonathan Rea with the Honda CBR1000RR of the Ten Kate, maintaining the fourth place achieved yesterday.
It is worth noting the good role of Davide giulianoAlthough the Superstock champion suffered a spectacular crash, he had time to climb into the top 10. Four of the seven Ducatis on the grid have made it into the top ten. The Italian superbike has been one of the best options for teams since 2008 but we have to remember that Phillip Island has been a track with Borgo Panigale's bikes going really fast. Joan Lascorz He still has work to do after watching his partner's rhythm while David salom not yet 100% physically.
By the way, if they had ridden with race tires - which seems to be the case - Carlos and Tom would have improved Troy Bayliss's 2008 record (1'31.8). It remains to be seen if they are able to do so in either race.
