2009 WSS Valencia FP2 Result - Lascorz Takes Top Spot, But Has To Work

Joan Lascorz continued his domination at Valencia during the second session of free practice. In the cool of the morning, the Spanish Kawasaki man led for much of the session, but Britain's Cal Crutchlow kept Lascorz honest, taking over the top spot for the latter part of practice. Lascorz then pulled out a record-breaking lap in the last minutes of practice to take back top spot. Lascorz finished a third of a second ahead of Crutchlow.

But the Kawasaki rider and the Yamaha man were way ahead of the rest of the field. Ant West was 3rd fastest, over a second behind Lascorz, while behind West, the field was a good deal closer. Michele Pirro was a creditable 4th on the Lorenzini Yamaha, while Eugene Laverty took 5th spot on the Parkalgar Honda. Barry Veneman was top Suzuki rider in 7th, as ever, while the Ten Kate Hondas continued to struggle with setting up their 2009 Honda CBR600RRs, Kenan Sofuoglu finishing in 8th, well ahead of series leader Andrew Pitt down in 12th.

The sole qualifying session will take place this afternoon at 1pm.

A 35.9 on a 600, that's a really good lap. Be really good if the Kawi can come through and win. Lascorz won here last year, I think.
