Sam Lowes tops the Supersport timesheets

Monday, February 18 2013

The first day of the official test for World Supersport got underway today at Phillip Island,  with Yakhnich Motorsport’s Sam Lowes topping the timesheets with a fastest lap of 1’33.950 – making him the only rider to make it into the bracket. Despite a slow start, it didn’t take Lowes long to get going, and he was quickly up to speed.

Reigning champion, Kenan Sofuoglu was behind Lowes, followed by Vladimir Leonov, who suffered a fall at turn nine after  an oil spill on track. Mathew Scholtz suffered the same fate, with the session then being red-flagged for track cleaning.
