Reynolds back on form at Knockhill
John Reynolds proved he is fully recovered from his broken collarbone finishing today’s British Superbike practice sessions with the fastest time of the day after working on two different bikes at a very wet Knockhill circuit.
The Rizla Suzuki rider spent the day testing suspension settings trying out two different shocks and a number of setups.
The first practice session started off dry but the rain fell half way through leaving Reynolds to finish in fifth. But he started the afternoon session on wet tyres and took the GSX-R1000 to the top of the pile with a time of 57.114.
"It is good to be at the top of the timesheets, that's where we deserve to be. I tried a few different settings and two different bikes today in the wet. We tried a hard and soft setting and it was on the harder setting that I was able to put together a lot of fast laps one after each other. " Said Reynolds.
The second fastest time went to Michael Rutter on the Ducati 998 finishing just 0.167 seconds behind Reynolds with Yamaha rider Steve Hislop taking third.
Sean Emmett finished with a time of 57.914 but was pushed down in to sixth by the Yamahas of Paul Young and Gary Mason.
