Mossey: We didn't really go for fast time

Luke Mossey says he wasn't pushing particularly hard for an outright quick lap and was pleasantly surprised to jump to second after Friday's practice sessions
Luke Mossey says he wasn't pushing particularly hard for an outright quick lap and was pleasantly surprised to jump to second after Friday's free practice.

The Quattro Plant Kawasaki rider, who claimed the BSB Riders' Cup in his rookie campaign last year, narrowly missed out on top spot by less than two-tenths in the final minutes of the afternoon session to finish behind Tyco BMW's Christian Iddon.

The 23-year-old says he hadn't been hunting an outright time, hinting at plenty of potential from his Quattro Plant Kawasaki ZX-10R, and is hoping for dry conditions before qualifying to pull out the maximum from the bike.

“It has been an up and down day, the first session was pretty wet all around and the second session it was wet around the back of the track but dried up in the last 10 minutes,” Mossey explained. “We didn't really go for a time but it obviously came.

“We've got a fairly good setting for the bike and it is feeling good. The weather is looking good for the weekend so hopefully we can get more dry time. We feel we've got a good race pace and distant on the Pirelli SCO but we won't know until the first race on Sunday so we will wait and see what happens.”
