Crutchlow “happy with the pace”

Top three for the Brit on Day 2

Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Team) put in 80 laps on Day 2 of testing at Phillip Island, and moved further up the timesheets from a top five on Day 1 to lock out the top three by the end of Day2. The Brit’s fastest was a 1’29.325.

Not going for a specific time-attack for the laptime but happy with the pace, Crutchlow found more positives on Day 2 at the track where he won his second MotoGP™ race back in October.

Day 2 finished in Australia. More positive day today …

CC35, P3: “Today was a more productive day for the LCR Honda Team. Yesterday there were a few teething problems perhaps, but today we seemed to be able to keep a good pace throughout. We are happy with the pace because it is consistent. We tried lots of different things with the bike, some of which were good and some not so much. We need to work on those areas still, but I think that the Honda in general seems to be improving, and that’s good for us.

“We need to continue to give the factory the right information to improve, but I didn’t even go out to set one ‘fast’ lap time today, but if we had I reckon we could have been very competitive. That’s something we can do another day however, because in the meantime I’m happy enough with our consistency. The tyre consistency was good and the bike is generally working well too, and even if the feeling isn’t perfect just yet, the speed is there, so that’s positive.”
