World Supersport: Foret Leads Day 1

World Supersport Phillip Island Test

On a totally dry track the lap times came tumbling in the second session and after 90 minutes of testing, the quickest time in World Supersport had been set by Fabien Foret, the Frenchman getting back to the top end of the results sheets on his new Hannspree Ten Kate Honda machine.

Foret was almost one full second clear of the two Kawasaki Motocard.com riders David Salom and Broc Parkes.

Sam Lowes (Parkalgar Honda) looked particularly competitive today, the Brit ending up fourth quickest, despite a fall, while Luca Scassa (Yamaha ParkinGO) was fifth ahead of Danilo Dell’Omo (Suriano Racing) with the first of the Triumphs, on his first appearance with the British three-cylinder machine.

Szopek continued his encouraging run with seventh for Bogdanka PTR, ahead of Roberto Tamburini (Yamaha Bike Service).
