ELIAS FIRST IN THE LAST INDIANAPOLIS FREE PRACTICE.
At the end of the last Indianapolis free practice, Spanish Alice Team rider Toni Elias, has conquered the fastest lap time. The track has dried out lap after lap and the Catalan rider has found a good balance of his bike that allowed him to remain constantly with the fastest riders. His teammate, Sylvain Guintoli, has also done a good performance concluding with the eighth fastest lap time. At 2pm local time the qualifying session will begin.
Toni Elias -- Alice Team rider (Fastest rider in 1'43.708 -- Total laps 17)
"I am happy because when it rains we have often some troubles but with the dry we are doing really well. To be honest I didn't expect to be so fast here, as I thought the track characteristic weren't so suitable for us, but we have done really well. Anyway we still have to wait and see what happens this afternoon. We will try to improve and to also find a good tyres solution for tomorrow. The asphalt is really different from one sector to the other. The old part uses the tyres a lot while the new part is really slippery. It will be really important to get the best tyres for the race."
Sylvain Guintoli -- Alice Team rider (8th fastest rider in 1'44.459 -- Total laps 22)
"Today I felt good. Everything went well and we made it to registered interesting lap times. Yesterday the track, when it was wet, was really slippery but today I really enjoyed it. It is a track with a really nice layout. We hope that the weather will be like this for the rest of the weekend."
