Team SRC Kawasaki shines during night tests
Following a muted performance in qualifying, with a fourth-place finish, Team SRC Kawasaki picked up the pace.
Team SRC Kawasaki posted the fastest time of the night tests at the 24 Heures Motos. Randy de Puniet, Fabien Foret and Mathieu Gines had a smoother night-time session, which presages a faster lap time at the second qualifying tomorrow morning for the winner of the 2016 edition.
Team SRC Kawasaki was quicker than GMT94 Yamaha, YART Yamaha Official EWC Team, Suzuki Endurance Racing Team and Tecmas BMW during the night test. Yamaha Viltaïs Experiences remained the best Superstock team of this session.
However, the results of the night tests – a post-sundown rehearsal for the 24-hour race – are not taken into account when drawing up the starting grid.
