@raffrabel: It would be great to see someone appear from nowhere and shine at this level, but I'm unsure as to whether or not he's somewhat overawed by the immense 'jump' he's making in classes. He mentions the fact that he was 'having to go back to his 125gp days' when trying to understand just how essential fast corner speed was, and just how amazed he was with the chassis running so stiff and rigid at this level...he also mentions the 'incredible lean angles' achievable, but more importantly is his over reliance upon the traction / electronics package...he more than intimated at the fact that he couldn't achieve a time with anything other than their maximum assistance. Here was me thinking all Aussie racers had traction / wheelie control etc merely as an ornamentation on their race bikes :) Still, I do wish him all the best !
