Simon Andrews is confident he has more in reserve having swept all before him on the opening day of British Superbike action at Snetterton.

Andrews topped both free practice sessions around the Norfolk circuit, the first time the MSS Colchester Kawasaki rider has found himself atop a timesheet in the British Superbike class this season.

Edging out Leon Camier by two thousandths of a second, Andrews was pleased to have emerged on top, but maintains there will be more to come when he switches to his number one Magneti Marelli-equipped bike for qualifying.

"I could have gone quicker today but my crew chief Chris Anderson decided to concentrate our time on my number one Magneti Marelli bike," he said. "The fastest times we set today were on my number two kit bike and not on my tyre of choice, either, which we're saving for tomorrow.

"The Magneti Marelli bike is faster and easier to ride but it feels totally different. We spent the last part of the second session working on this and made a lot of progress in readiness for tomorrow's qualifying sessions.'

Coming just a week before the team head to the premier stage as wild-cards for the World Superbike Championship round at Donington Park, team owner Nick Morgan was impressed to witness his bike leading the way.

"That's a mega way to start a race weekend. We've been strong from the word go and still have a few more tricks up our sleeves. It's what happens tomorrow and on Sunday that really matters but you've got to say that the ZX-10R is looking really, really strong."
