2018 Brno World Superbike FP1 Results: Rinaldi Tops Damp Morning

The rain stopped before the riders went out and Jonathan Rea put in a lap that lasted as the quickest lap until the dying minutes of the session when several riders took advantage of the drying track. Michael Ruben Rinaldi came out on top, ahead of Loris Baz and Xavi Fores. With more rain promised, all bets are off for Superpole qualifying.

Michael Rinaldo on the pace, which is more than I can say for Chaz in the damp conditions. Chaz has upped his pace  in fp2. Yoni Hernandez knows the way around Brno from gp. P. J. Jacobson had great speed before the "technical problem". Could be a good weekend.
