Aussie Matt Davies put the disappointment of yesterday behind him, and although the weather prevented PTR Honda’s youngest rider from bettering his grid position, both he and the team are keen to show their true potential in tomorrow’s 22 Lap race.
The Moscow Raceway is a tight, technical circuit and this weekend is the first time that Matt has visited the Russian venue.
Matt who had narrowly missed out on world championship points on several occasions was an encouraging 20th position in today’s earlier free practice session but with rain falling for the duration of the important final session, neither Matt or any other rider in the field could improve their times from yesterday.
Matt Davies – 28th on the grid: “Today was better. In the rain I was around 10th position but then it dried out. The last session was okay but with the weather it made it difficult to improve. Hopefully tomorrow’s race will be good! I will be pushing hard for a good result for the team.”
The 8th round of the World Supersport championship is scheduled to start at 1330 local time.
