WorldSBK Assen | Alvaro Bautista bosses FP1, Gardner top three

Reigning World Champion Alvaro Bautista (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati) secured the fastest time in a dry FP1 session at Assen, taking the initiative on the first day back in competitive action after a seven week break since Mandalika.

All-time Assen best rider Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team) was finally deposed to second fastest by Bautista late in the session, with Independent rider Remy Gardner (GRT Yamaha) a strong third.

Proven Assen podium man Andrea Locatelli (Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK Team) was fourth in FP1. On a day of unexpected results in some areas Scott Redding (ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team) was fifth quickest.


He was one place up on the works Yamaha of Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK Team), as the Turkish rider continued to suffer with a head cold.

Garrett Gerloff (Bonovo Action BMW) muscled his M100RR into seventh place, ahead of top Ducati Independent rider, Axel Bassani (MotoCorsa Racing Ducati). 

Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team) placed ninth and Dominique Aegerter (GRT Yamaha) tenth. FP2 takes place at 15.00 local time in Assen - 14.00 UK.
