Re: SBK 2023 Round 2

It's on again in Indonesia!
The circuit started rather dirty on Friday morning, slowly getting better.

Some riders not doing as well as they did at Philip Island.

A few who have never ridden the Mandalika circuit before. Some fast learners.

The weekend's races should be interesting.
