Glenn Irwin, riding for the Be Wiser Ducati Racing Team topped the time sheets in Free Practice 3 today at Knockhill closely followed by Josh Brookes and Jake Dixon. Irwin, set a new out-right lap record by blasting his way to a 47.347 second lap.
Incredibly, he reckons there is still time find on track as he’s yet to pull the perfect lap together and nail all three sectors in the same lap. Therefore, don’t be surprised if the times dip even further when the BSB riders put it all on the line during Datatag Extreme Qualifying later today.
Fastest man from yesterday, Danny Buchan rounded out the session fourth ahead of Richard Cooper, Leon Haslam and Brad Ray; with 13 riders registering times inside the 47second bracket, qualifying is going to be a very intriguing battle. A single thousandth of a second could be the difference between a front or a fourth row start for tomorrow’s two feature BSB races.
Onwards to Qualifying at 16.00 hours today.
If you fancy coming along, tickets can still be pre-booked online until midnight this evening at the advanced discounted rate for tomorrow’s raceday. All tickets pre-booked will be subject to collection at the track off the main drive heading towards the Hairpin gate.
Tickets will also be available on the gate throughout the weekend.
