Aegerter, who is sporting a yellow retro livery for his Ten Kate Yamaha team’s home round, set a blistering pace from the outset that no other rider could seemingly challenge. 

That was until the very final lap of the session when Odendaal overhauled the Swiss rider who had gone even quicker on his final lap too. 

Philipp Oettl was third fastest in the end for Kawasaki Puccetti Racing after he and Manuel Gonzalez displaced Jules Cluzel who had spent most of FP1 third quickest. 

Niki Tuuli suffered a huge highside at turn two, but fortunately the Finn looked unhurt and was able to walk away on his own accord. Tuuli finished tenth overall.
