Superstock 1000 Brno, FP1-FP2: Superb Markus Reiterberger leads Friday standings

At Brno Superstock 1000 FP1 was affected by the rain fallen in early morning and the standings were topped by Aprilia wildcard rider Andrea Mantovani. But later the track got drier and drier and so the riders could push at their hardest during Friday afternoon’s FP2. 

As the conditions were normal again, the rider who finished in front of the rest is, as usual, Markus Reiterberger. The alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW rider went first during the early stages with a lap in 2’01.853. With just 10 minutes (out of 30) to go he went even faster till reaching 2’01.670 and this laptime allowed him to close Friday FPs in first place.

Behind “Reiti” we find Roberto Tamburini, who’s second also in championship standings (76 points against the 86 scored so far by “Reiti”). Berclaz Racing BMW’s “Tambu” was followed by Florian Marino (Yamaha URBIS MotoXRacing), Luca Vitali and Maximilian ScheibFederico SandiAndrea Mantovani (who fell at Turn 11 during FP2, but escaped uninjured), Alessandro DelbiancoRiccardo Russo and Jan Bühn closed the top 10.
