Friday’s practice session set the stage for an exciting race as only 0.015 seconds separated Team Icon Brammo’s Shane Turpin and Eric Bostrom at the top.
Those times should mean a phenomenal race on Sunday as the two Brammo team mates battle to be crowned champion of Laguna in 2013. Both riders also reached speeds of over 130mph.
Meanwhile, Team Parker Brammo’s Shelina Moreda competed with SBK Racing’s Ted Rich for the fourth fastest lap. Moreda was only 0.04 seconds behind Rich.
Again, those times point towards another closely-contested race for third place when the riders compete this Sunday.
All eight bikes finished the practice session without incidents, as Kenyon Kluge, Jeremiah Johnson, Arthur Kowitz and Brandon Miller all pulled in the next fastest lap times respectively.
There is now plenty of opportunity for the teams to tinker with their bikes’ set-ups before tomorrow’s qualifying session, which takes place at 5pm local time.
