Haslam on form for Stiggy.

Stiggy Racing's first official appearance as a World Superbike team has proven to be been a tale of mixed fortunes as Leon Haslam battles towards the front and Roberto Rolfo ails at the back.

For Haslam, the return to the WSBK paddock has been a positive one, the multiple BSB race winner regularly amongst the best of the privateer entrants aboard the Honda.

Even so, while Haslam ended day two of testing with the tenth best time, he insists the lap times aren't important whilst he continues to dial in the CBR1000RR bike.

“I'm happy with our progress over the two days,” he said. “We have been testing a lot of new things on the bike and so far we have found a good base to work with.

“Lap times have not been our main focus up until now, but I'm already faster then the last time I raced here, so I guess that's already a good reference for us in terms of our potential! We have more work to do and tomorrow we'll carry on where we left off today.”

On the other side of the garage, Rolfo hasn't been able to lift himself off the bottom of the timesheets as he continues to struggle with his shoulder injury. Completing just six laps all day, Rolfo is nonetheless determined to soldier on.

“At the moment I'm not so happy, but this is because of my shoulder. I find it very difficult in the left corners and keep losing my line as I haven't got the strength in my left arm and shoulder.

“Yesterday I didn't do many laps, due to the weather, but today I did and unfortunately my injury caused me more problems the harder I pushed. Other than that, the bike feels good and we have a good base set-up. The engine is strong and the chassis feels good, so hopefully we can improve tomorrow.”
