After five weeks off Rory was straight back on the pace in yesterday’s unofficial practice for the single race at Motorland JWC this weekend.
The usual two 40 minute sessions are the only pre qualifying practice testing he has had as he missed the two day testing, which most other riders attended, due to his broken wrist. He has raced here last year and likes the circuit.
This round has only one race so it’s a more gentle way back into the championship after his injury than straight into two races held at most rounds.
There is no timing on the unofficial Friday test so no overall times are posted. In hot sunny conditions, the faster riders were circulating around 2:01 – 2:03 and Rory was right back amongst them.
There is official timing for two 40 min qualifying sessions today.
Thunder storms are forecast around the area but the local prediction is for fine sunny conditions over the two days.
