Ui dominates again the 125cc field in Saturday´s free practice

Ui dominates again the 125cc field in Saturday´s free practice

Derbi ace Youichi Ui confirms himself as the man to beat in the 125cc class with fastest time in the morning free practice. Ui took full advantage of the ideal track conditions to score the fastest ever lap on a 125 at Suzuka.

Last year´s runner up to Roberto Locatelli posted a 2.14.597 lap almost at the end of the session, almost one second inside the circuit´s official record set by Roberto Locatelli last year. Ui was more than half a second faster than second position man Masao Azuma, who crashed at the beginning of the session.

The surprise came from Italian Stefano Perugini, in his first outing with Italjet. He was third fastest ahead of Aprilia countryman Lucio Cecchinello.
