Bayliss Smashes Brno Lap Record

The following is from Ducati...

Troy Bayliss (Ducati Xerox Team) demolished the outright Superbike lap record on the second day of testing at the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic. The Australian, whose has raced at Brno before but only in MotoGP, improved last year's best lap time set by Chris Walker by over two seconds to leave the unofficial record at 2m00.8s.

Bayliss's time was set in the morning on the new qualifying tyre brought by Pirelli to the Brno development tests which on the basis of its performance here will now be provided to the entire grid at the forthcoming round of the championship in Misano Adriatico. Rain after the lunch break brought a temporary halt to proceedings but the riders present were able to complete the second day of testing on a dry track in the afternoon.

"Today went much better than yesterday because I didn't crash!" declared Troy. "Overall the day went well, I did a good time on a qualifying tyre but then it rained after lunch and we only got going again at around 4 o'clock. But I had a couple of good race tyres and did a 2m01.6 on them so I'm feeling confident. I've been on the podium here in MotoGP so it's a pretty good track for me."

Lorenzo Lanzi made a good step forward today, moving up from eighth to fourth place.

"This morning I did a lot of laps to try and find a good feeling," declared Lorenzo, "and I think I achieved that because my race pace was not bad at all. In the afternoon it rained and then they closed the track early so I was unable to make the best of the qualifying tyre. However it's a good step forward over yesterday."

TIMES: 1. Bayliss (Ducati Xerox) 2m01.6s; 2. Walker (Kawasaki) 2m02.1s; 3. Muggeridge (Honda) 2m02.2s; 4. Lanzi (Ducati Xerox) 2m02.5s; 5. Toseland (Honda) 2m02.5s; 6. Haga (Yamaha) 2m02.9s; 7. Pitt (Yamaha) 2m02.9s; 8. Nieto (Kawasaki) 2m03.0s; 8. Martin (Petronas) 2m03.7s; 9. Kagayama (Suzuki) 2m04.0s; 10. Foret (Suzuki) 2m04.4s.

Corser is out of the Brno tests with Chicken Pox... Talk about a rough year for the guy...
I really looked forward to the battle of the Troys all year, but Corser can't seem to get things going right...

Bayliss is on rails...
