Portimao Supersport Test Results, Day 2

2011 WSS Test

The Supersport World Championship riders suffered some of the same issues as the World Superbike riders on Thursday. They endured changing track conditions that proved tricky and inconsistent.

Just before the rains returned in the afternoon session Luca Scassa (ParkinGO Yamaha YZF-R6) posted the fastest time of the day, a 1’57.074.

His teammate Chaz Davies was exactly 0.4 seconds behind and Gino Rea hopped up the order to third on his Step Racing Team Honda CBR600RR.

Sam Lowes (Parkalgar Honda) was fourth today but is still fastest overall thanks to his first day dry time of 1’45.845. One more day of testing remains.
