McPhee off to a flier in fourth

Day 1 in Argentina just the British Talent Team's cup of tea

British Talent Team rider John McPhee had an impressive first day on track at Termas de Rio Hondo in Argentina, ending the day in P4 on combined timesheets with a best of 1:50.940.

McPhee began the day in tenth in FP1 and then topped the timesheets for some time in FP2, before a late rush saw him pushed down to fourth - only 0.009 off P3. The Scot did 31 laps on Day 1.

After a podium first time out in Qatar, the BTT rider is aiming high again in Argentina – with Friday a great start to what can be a challenging weekend of slowly improving grip. Next up is FP3, which gets underway on Saturday at 9:00am local time (GMT -3), before qualifying at 12:35.

John McPhee, P4: "I'm happy overall with Day 1 here in Argentina. The track was dirty as expected so we didn't make any changes with setup and focused mainly on race runs. I've done a lot of laps with the hard rear tyre and I'm feeling comfortable on the bike."
