Having already qualified on the front row at Brno and Silverstone, Alex Schacht regained his qualifying form with a superb performance in final qualifying at the Portimao circuit earlier today.
After qualifying provisionally on the 3rd row yesterday, the Danish rider improved massively to secure 5th position on the grid for tomorrow’s race.
The forecast for tomorrow shows a possibility of rain but today’s result is a great boost to Alex and the team who are confident of a strong result whatever the weather.
“The bike was perfect today.” said an elated Alex. “Over the weekend my confidence has grown and in today’s session I was fast even when riding alone and not in a group. I want to say a big thanks to the team and I am sure I can give a good performance tomorrow.”
The penultimate round of the UEM Superstock 600cc Championship is scheduled to run at 1435 local time on Sunday.
