Aragon World Superbike Test Day 3 Times

Testing concluded Friday for the World Superbike series at Aragon, with Max Biaggi finally beating the time set by Carlos Checa on the Althea Ducati on day 1. The WSBK champion had spent all three days working on the setup of the new Brembo brakes for his Alitalia Aprilia, before turning his attention to putting in a fast lap at the end of the test. Tom Sykes was 2nd fastest on day 3, though still not quite as fast as Checa had been on day 1, the Yorkshireman's 2011 spec ZX-10R showing a lot of promise for the new season. 

Leon Haslam finally put together a good lap on the BMW, the Bavarian factory pouring a lot of resources into working on the bike, their hard work paying off with an improvement of a full second off the 2010 runner up's previous lap time. Michel Fabrizio ended day 3 in 4th on the Alstare Suzuki, over a second off Biaggi's time.
