XAVI FOURTH!

Despite never having see the track before today, Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon was able to post the fourth fastest time of the day. The trio in front of him have all raced here before in the Italian Championship, so Xavi is happy that he was able to be competing with them so soon. Mark Aitchison (Suzuki) set the day's fastest time, with a lap of 1:41.742, ahead of Ayrton Badovini (MV) second and Claudio Corti (Yamaha) third.

XAVI - 4th, 1:42.430

Considering that this is my first time here, I'm happy with fourth quickest. Today I spent all the time learning the track and geeting a good bike set-up. So, tomorrow I'll be able to push much harder for sure. This afternoon was better because it was dry, but even in the wet I was putting in good lap times, so I'm not worried whatever the weather does. Vallelunga is an easy track to learn and I found no real problems. Now I'm looking forward to tomorrow and putting my pressure on the guys up front.
