I’ve been in Japan for the last couple of weeks to prepare for the Suzuka 8 hours which takes place on Sunday. Its great to be here again, Japan is a country I love to visit and the 8h is a very special race.

Yesterday was the first day of practice, with 3 riders we have to share the bike and tyres. I got 5 Laps on used rubber, then a new tyre went in and I got another 4 laps. I went to p2.

 Today we have a 2 hour practice, followed by 2 Qualifying sessions and a night practice. I did the first 30 minutes of this mornings practice on used tyres and went P3, after 13 laps I ended my session P5.

 So far I’m happy with the Bike, the team have made some good improvements  since I last rode with them in 2013 but we still have things to work on in the next couple of days before the race.
