Unhappy Fores.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Javi Fores suffered suspension problems in final qualifying at Brands Hatch today and ended in sixteenth place on the grid. The young Spaniard now faces an uphill struggle in tomorrow's 23-lap race and knows a rocket start is needed if he is to get a good result. Once again series leader Sebastien Charpentier (Honda) dominated proceedings today and took pole position by the healthy margin of eight tenths of a second. Second quickest is Kevin Curtain (Yamaha), with Gianluca Nannelli (Ducati) third and Michel Fabrizio (Honda) fourth.

JAVI -16th, 1:30.512
Today was a disaster! For whatever reason, the front and rear suspension were not working as we wanted. The bike felt very nervous and it was impossible to go any faster. Even on my quick lap I had a problem - with another rider - and that slowed me a little, so it was just one of those days. Brands is a very difficult track, but I had a better feeling about it today and I can see that it is a great track to ride. It is a beautiful track and I hope I can get some sort of good result tomorrow.
