Unfortunate start to the season for PTR Honda and Kyle. Clutch failure on Lap 1.
CIA Landlord Insurance Honda rider Kyle Smith’s combined times from free practice 1 and free practice 2 today earned him automatic entry into the World Supersport Championship Superpole 2 on Saturday afternoon.
Kyle said: “It’s not been the easiest of day’s riding but I’m happy to be in the top 10. The lap times were not coming with too much ease but we’ve improved another big step compared to the test at the beginning of the week, so we are heading in the right direction. If we carry on with this progress tomorrow it should be a good race on Sunday.”
