2017 Portimao World Superbike FP2 Results: Rea Quickest Ahead Of Melandri

In a warm and windy session that started five minutes late, Jonathan Rea ran a string of fast laps before popping back for new tyres, five minutes from the end of the session. With the new rubber on, he put in two more laps before facing the chequered flag and set the fastest time of the weekend on the last lap.

Marco Melandri, missing most of the morning's session, was second quickest, finally dipping into the 1'43s with only ten minutes remaining, briefly taking the top spot from Rea. Chaz Davies, Leon Camier and Eugene Laverty also put in quick laps at the end and all ended the session within a second of Jonathan Rea. Tom Sykes was unable to improve on his morning's best time but remains in the top ten and qualified for Superpole two.
