Best time at Silverstone for Troy Bayliss
Best time at Silverstone for Troy Bayliss

The seventh round of the Superbike World Championship has already started, this time at the Silverstone track. The rain has appeared timidly at times, so the track was not in the best condition, although it was almost dry.

The second free practice session on Friday has served so that the two pilots of the Ducati Xerox present their credentials. Best time for the current world champion, Troy bayliss, followed by his partner Lorenzo lanzi. Both have been the only ones able to lose 1'26 '' throughout the day.

The leader of the World Cup, James toseland, set the third fastest time, but one second behind Troy, who despite the poor track conditions has improved the circuit record. And fourth position for our Ruben Xaus (three Ducati on the front row), which claimed to have achieved a good set-up to compensate for the lack of tire grip.

Troy corser set the 5th best time, just ahead of his teammate Noriyuki Haga. The Japanese rider, who recently won both Monza races, was unable to repeat the best time achieved in the first practice session. Although things were worse for Max biaggi. The Italian is the first time he has raced at this circuit, and as a consequence he was only able to be 15th.

Finally, mention the performance of our other representative. After the MotoGP experience of Fonsi Nieto, returns to the Superbikes achieving a discreet eighth position, ahead of his teammate Regis laconi.
