Although poor weather hampered progress on day one, better conditions on the second day allowed the runners to get some decent track time.

“We'll now get to work on the final 2010 plans and conclude the ongoing negotiations with teams interested in racing the M210 in the World and Spanish Championships and other events that we've received enquiries about,” said FTR director Steve Bones, who revealed that six grand prix teams after interested in the running the M210.

Also on track were Stefan Bradl and Vladimir Leonov, who rode Suter MMX bikes for the Viessmann Kiefer Racing team, the pair separated by three tenths, but proving almost three seconds slower than Abraham.

I am soooooo looking forward to the Honda Deauville support races next year. Regulations state that all panniers and top boxes must be fully loaded with a minimum weight of 50kg and the adjustable screen set to the 'bad weather' protection position. Bring it on scratchers...

That is more than likely due to the fact that they won't have the "proper" race engines until about February next year. Just now they are running with nar stock CBR600 roadbike engines. WSS bikes are faster at the moment but once the tuned engines start getting slotted in that will soon change.
