DAY 1 AT CREMONA: Razgatlioglu leads Bassani by almost one second, Montella quickest in WorldSSP

Some teams and riders from the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship have opted to stay in Italy for the time being and complete a two-day test at the Cremona Circuit. The new-for-WorldSBK venue is scheduled to host its first round in September and, after a test in May, a handful of teams from both WorldSBK and WorldSSP have tested there again ahead of the inaugural round there later this year.

The times on Day 1 were topped by Toprak Razgatlioglu (ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team), whose 1’28.578s was almost a whole second quicker than Axel Bassani (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) in second. The #54’s time was also around three tenths faster than that set by Remy Gardner (GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team) in the May test, when the #87 posted a 1’28.860s. In WorldSSP, Yari Montella (Barni Spark Racing Team) was the pacesetter with a 1’32.579s. There will be more track action on Thursday.
