Krummenacher Hangs On To Top WorldSSP Tests | Sport | WSBK

Randy Krummenacher (Bardahl Evan Bros Yamaha) hung on to a confidence-boosting top slot in the WorldSSP overall test ranking at Phillip Island, outpacing his own team-mate Federico Caricasulo by 0.201seconds.

MV Agusta Reparto Corse rider Raffaele De Rosa scored third best time on his three-cylinder machine, splitting a fee of the most fancied Yamahas in the process.

Yamaha GMT94 pairing Jules Cluzel and Corentin Perolari ended their final pre-season test days in fourth and fifth place respectively. Their fellow Frenchman, Lucas Mahias (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) was sixth, and the final rider inside the 1’34 lap time barrier.

Mahias’ team-mate, Hikari Okubo, was seventh, and a former Puccetti rider, Hector Barbera (Team Toth by Willirace Yamaha) placed eighth for his new team.

The top ten was completed by new Kallio Yamaha signing Thomas Gradinger, and MPM WILSPort Racedays Honda rider, Hannes Soomer.
