Portimao WorldSBK: Cluzel tops WorldSSP practice

After a gigantic nine weeks without any competitive track action, the WorldSSP riders got going again under a hot Portuguese sun at Portimao.

The fastest rider of all proved to be Jules Cluzel (NRT Yamaha), with Lucas Mahias (GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP Team) second and Sandro Cortese (Kallio Racing Yamaha) third.

Long time leader on lap times, Federico Caricasulo (GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP Team) placed fourth, Randy Krummenacher (BARDAHL Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha) fifth and late charger Luke Stapleford (Profile Racing Yamaha) sixth, for an all R6 day once again.


Kyle Smith (CIA Landlord Insurance Honda) was seventh, Hannes Soomer (Racedays Honda) eighth, and top MV Man was Ayrton Badovini (MV Agusta Reparto Corse by Vamag) in ninth place.

The increasing temperatures over the first day held lap times back for a time in FP2, with Corentin Perolari (Yamaha GMT94) one who bucked the trend but slipped to an eventual tenth when the top riders really got going.
