Supersport: Final Phillip Island Test Results

World Supersport

Hannspree Ten Kate Honda’s Fabien Foret again posted the top time, but just by a fraction as the World Supersport runners completed their four testing sessions (two days) at Phillip Island.

Foret, who returns to the Ten Kate fold for the first time since winning the World Supersport championship with the team in 2002, set the fastest overall time of the test. Foret’s best lap of 1m33.904s was less than 0.1s off the fastest ever World Supersport lap at Phillip Island.

Fabien Foret (Ten Kate Honda Supersport) says: "I felt a bit tired this afternoon – mentally more than physically, as I was trying to give good information to the team. The two tests here have been very positive, not just because of the quickest lap but because the race pace is quite good, too.

"And, most important for me, I have a good feeling on the bike and I’m having fun. I think we are working very well together and we’re are quite close to being ready for the race. We’ll adjust a few things if conditions change, but it’s nice for everybody to be able to prepare like this.

The Frenchman was put under pressure throughout by an impressive Broc Parkes on the Kawasaki Supersport machine in Australia.

David Salom on the second Kawasaki ZX-6R was a further two-tenths behind but held on to the place from youngster Florian Marino (Hannspree Ten Kate Honda CBR600).

Britain’s Sam Lowes (Parkalgar Honda) was next up, followed by Roberto Tamburini (Yamaha Bike Service) in sixth.

Supersport rider Luca Scassa was the first Yamaha ParkinGO man in the timesheets, in seventh with Chaz Davies a further five places down. Gino Rea (Step Racing Honda) was eighth, while Danilo Dell’Omo was the first Triumph in the timesheets in 10th.
