2018 Phillip Island World Supersport Tuesday Test Times: Krummenacher Leads Yamaha Clean Sweep

Randy Krummenacher leads a clean sweep of the Phillip Island World Supersport test for Yamaha. After a difficult year in WorldSBK, the Swiss rider has got his step back to the WorldSSP class off to a strong start, beating both the GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP riders. Lucas Mahias took second, ahead of his teammate Federico Caricasulo. Newcomer Sandro Cortese got his WorldSSP career off to a strong start, ending the test in fourth on the Kallio Racing Yamaha R6.

Fan favorite Ant West was the fastest non-Yamaha, the EAB West Racing rider putting the Kawasaki ZX-6R into fifth, half a second behind Krummenacher, and just ahead of Luke Stapleford on the Profile Racing Triumph 675. Raffaele De Rosa was seventh quickest on the MV Agusta, a fraction faster than former multiple WorldSSP champion Kenan Sofuoglu on the Kawasaki ZX-6R.

Testing is now finished, and the riders have two days off before practice starts for the first race of the season at Phillip Island on Sunday.
