Re: SBK Magny-Cours 2021

Fast learners again. Had a look at times from the first 3 practice sessions, fp1 was dampish so not ideal. The three Rs are improving. Rea, Redding & Razgatlioglu Garrett Gerloff has made a big improvement on his times; 1m 40.004 fp1, 1m 37.635 to 1m 36.709! Three & a quarter seconds per lap. That i...

Re: SBK Magny-Cours 2021

I spoke too soon regarding Michael van der Mark, 2nd in fp1, he improved his time by 0.74 and went down the order to 10th!
The usual suspects at the top. R, R & R! Twelve within a second of Toprak.
Bassani 13th looks good for a rookie.

We get a race today!

Van der Mark is back.

Magny-Cours this weekend so most riders have been to the circuit many times. Plenty of data.

Rory Skinner

I've just seen some news on twitter via MotoMatters.

"American Racing say they're hoping to bring Rory Skinner into Moto2 next year" Mat Oxley

Rory's smiling race would be a real asset in the paddock.
