Assen is faster this weekend, following modifications to the Ruskenhoek chicane at the end of the back straight, the entry to which is now far less acute.

The result is a reduction in track length of 13 metres and a more flowing layout, with all previous lap records redundant.

15 bikes is too few but ...AKIYOSHI, I didnt expect him to be as quick as Hiro...but seriously 6 seconds off the pace is kinda worrying. Proof if any were needed that DORNAs cost cuttng strategy has been a flop. Stop messing around and trying to spoil the worlds greatest sport!!
