WSS Miller: Laverty remains the benchmark in second Free Practice

1 of 1

Eugene Laverty continued to set the pace in the second Free Practice session at Miller this morning. The Parkalgar Honda rider set a new best lap of the 3.048s circuit, bettering his provisional pole time set in first qualifying.

2009 race winner Kenan Sofuoglu significantly upped his pace from day one and was the only man to join Laverty with a sub 1m52s lap. Sofuoglu’s Hannspree Ten Kate Honda team-mate Michele Pirro claimed third ahead of Joan Lascorz in fourth.

Triumph BE1 rider Chaz Davies admitted that he still has work to do in preparation for this afternoons qualifying session. He finished the session in eighth with fellow Brit Gino Rea in tenth.
