Positive Start To Opening Round For Pata Yamaha

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

In relatively cool and completely dry conditions the Pata #yamaha Official #worldsbk Team got its 2017 season underway with two 60-minute practice sessions at the 4.445km Phillip Island circuit.

Alex Lowes finished a strong sixth in the rankings, 0.628 seconds from the fastest rider, despite concentrating all his efforts in finding a chassis and race tyre combination with which to take on the challenge of race one on Saturday 25th February. He qualified directly into Superpole 2, which will take place after a 25-minute Free Practice 3 session on Saturday morning.

For Lowes new team-mate #michaelvandermark his first race weekend experience as an official #yamaha rider saw him 12th fastest on the time-sheets, but working on finding his best race set-up as a priority. He feels there are still even better machine settings to be found, particularly on corner entry.

Alex and Michael will use the final free practice session tomorrow to make ready for Superpole 1 and then the opening 22-lap race of the year, which takes place at 15.00 local time.
