Both riders completed four laps of the mountain circuit in tonight’s sessions. Pattinson achieved a best of 120MPH on his Superbike with Wylie at 119MPH. Each rider tested with two bikes, Pattinson on the Superbike and Superstock machines and Wylie went with the Superbike and 600. Conditions were good with an air temperature of around 14 degrees C and only light wind. No major problems were encountered, but Wylie’s Superbike engine will be receive a precautionary inspection prior to tomorrow’s session and the usual array of minor adjustments will be completed.
The Team plan to run all machines tomorrow, with an aim of achieving the maximum five laps per rider. Ben Wylie will try the 195 section rear in the Superbike in an effort to improve stability and Ian Pattinson will run the 600 for the first time.
The forecast for the rest of the week is for continuing dry conditions until Friday when there may be rain, so around a maximum of 16 or 18 laps could be possible.
