2013 Donington World Superbike FP1 Results: Davies Tames The Rain

So few riders went out on track, as the wet conditions rendered the session useless. Chaz Davies, a rider who last year complained of a lack of wet weather experience, recorded the quickest time of the few daring enough to brave the deluge.

Looks good for the remainder of the race weekend though.

It's not warm (mid teens C) but if the promised sun is shining the track temperature should be OK and the fans basking.

Fingers X'd.

Glad to see Haslam is staying warm and dry. I don't know how he/they do it..... I wouldn't bet against him performing well. Davies will be aiming to get a double following the post-Aragon struggles, and Melandri may not be so bold as last year after his injuries......Sykes will want it quite badly too.

Oh, if only MGP had so many potential winners/racers.
