Wind and wet track characterize the first session

Animoca Brands Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix 2022 – FP1

14 October 2022 Phillip Island – Australia

Two days of heavy rains have taken away the rubber coating from the track, making it much slower. In addition, a fairly strong wind and a damp track in some places, have worsened the situation.

Unfortunately, we have to report with fifteen minutes to go a high-side by john in turn 11, as a result of which our driver sustained contusions to his shoulder and elbow. The fact that in the ranking is quite behind depends on this, since he did not take part in the last minutes of testing. It was going pretty fast up until then. In the end he was twenty-second, with a time of 1’42.382 and a gap of 2.609 s. Ayumu, given the conditions, preferred to delay access to the track and at the end of the session he got the ninth time, with a gap of 0.884 s and a best lap of 1’40.657.

Free practice 2 will start at 13.15 (GMT +11).
