Eugene Laverty through to Superpole 2 at Aragon with P9 on Friday
Eugene Laverty had a busy Friday at Motorland Aragon – verifying a number of upgrades to the RSV4 RF, including a new engine specification and exhaust.
After showing solid progress in pace over the day’s two practice sessions, Eugene was able to finish Free Practice 2 in P9 and reach the pole position shootout for the third consecutive round.
The action continues at #AragonWorldSBK on Saturday with Free Practice 3 at 08:45 local time (07:45 GMT), ahead of Superpole 1 & 2 at 10:30 (09:30 GMT) and Race 1 at 13:00 (12:00 GMT)
Eugene Laverty #50
FP1 – 1’51.535 / FP2 – 1’51.054
“It’s nice to make it through to Superpole 2 again, especially when the rain started at the end of FP2 and things got quite close. It’s easy to get caught out in mixed conditions but we timed the tyre change right. In the morning we didn’t make as much progress with the bike as I expected, but we made some changes in the afternoon and it improved quite a lot. We’ve still got work to do, but there is reason to be optimistic for the rest of the weekend. We’ve got hopes for a top 5 finish this weekend and I think that’s achievable if we have a good Superpole session tomorrow.”
