Aussie Matt Davies ended day one of the 6th round of the World Supersport championship at the Portimao circuit in Portugal this afternoon in a disappointing 30th position after a technical problem triggered by an earlier tumble meant the talented youngster was sidelined within the first 10 minutes.
With the disappointment of Donington Park a fortnight ago behind him, Davies was confident of challenging for a top 15 starting position at the undulating ‘rollercoaster’ which is Portimao.
After a promising 21st overall in the morning free practice, Matt was disappointed to only complete 4 laps before the issue with the bike meant no further on track participation today.
The PTR Honda team will work hard overnight to ensure that Matt is in the best possible shape for final qualifying which takes place tomorrow afternoon at 1605 local time.
