There wasn't much wrong with the speed of Kent's KTM. He recorded the 4th fastest top speed of the race behind only Khairuddin, Ajo, and Sissis. He did ok for the first race of the season, and this being only his second full seaon in gp racing. But that's all he did. The fact his he got beaten by four other KTM's. Among them Sissis who is a rookie with practically zero experience at this level, and Khairuddin that before this year no one(including me) really rated at all. So he needs to get into gear sooner rather than later.

Testing and racing are always 2 completely different things. Within 3 days of testing you get rougly 5-6 hours a day, to fine tune your set-up. So that's pratically 15-18 hours to get your set-up right. And at the end of it you don't even go racing. At a GP weekend you get just about 3 hours in total to do the same. And then you have to race at the end of it. So it's easier to go fast in than on the racew weekend
