Laverty on top in Monza Free Practice

1 of 1

Assen race winner Eugene Laverty set the fastest time in the opening Free Practice session at Monza this afternoon. Onboard the Parkalgar Honda Laverty was at the top of the time-sheets when heavy rain hit the circuit ending any chance for his competitors to improve their times.

Ten Kate Honda man Michele Pirro led early on, but finished second ahead of Kawasaki man Fabien Foret and Pirro’s ten Kate team-mate Kenan Sofuoglu. Championship leader Joan Lascorz claimed sixth with Brits Chaz Davies and Gino Rea ninth and 11th respectively.
