Brookes goes fastest at Cadwell Park

Saturday, August 28 2010

HM Plant Honda's Josh Brookes topped the second free practice session of the day at Cadwell Park, as he set the first 1m:27s lap of the weekend to remain ahead of Simon Andrews who had been fastest this morning.

Brookes set the fastest lap early in the session, before improving again to dip below a 1m:28s lap time and remained the only rider to do so as the conditions continued to change throughout the 50 minute second free practice.

Andrews moved second ahead of Tommy Hill at the half-way point, however the MSS Colchester Kawasaki rider was able to hold the position with Ryuichi Kiyonari moving third as the rain began to fall to nudge Hill to fourth.

Michael Rutter was fifth on the Ridersmotorcycles.com Ducati, despite Gary Mason challenging for the position before the conditions changed and he was forced to settle for sixth whilst Yukio Kagayama improved to seventh.

Michael Laverty was the fastest of the Relentless Suzukis in eighth ahead of the two Swan Hondas of James Ellison and Stuart Easton in ninth and tenth respectively. The final Title Fighter place will be decided following the races on Monday, but Alastair Seeley was only twelfth fastest, just ahead of rival John Laverty on the Buildbase Kawasaki in thirteenth. Steve Brogan was the fastest of the Mirror.co.uk BSB - Evo riders in sixteenth.
