Checa Wins Tissot Watch Superpole
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
Jakub Smrz came in second in the race which is sponsored by luxury brand Tissot watches. Checa’s time on the second lap, on a drying track, was 1 minute 58.315, putting him in the best possible position for the next race
Carlos Checa said: “I really like this track, but the bike doesn’t so much! We had some problems that we solved and I hope for tomorrow everything is going to be fine.
“We’ve been working quite well in the dry, and finally when it was getting dry I was able to get more grip and that’s the main reason I was able to fight for the pole. It’s a nice surprise!”
