Magny Cours (France) 28 September 2019
The final European round of the FIM Supersport world championship is taking place at the French circuit of Magny Cours. On day one of practice, both sessions were characterised by heavy rain. Randy Krummenacher, in agreement with his team, made only a few laps, choosing not to take any unnecessary risks in the very unstable weather conditions. Today, the Swiss rider, competing for the Bardahl Evan Bros. team, was back on track for the final free practice, in which he set the sixth fastest time. Heavy rain made a reappearance later in the morning, meaning that the Superpole session was delayed, finally getting underway at 12pm local time. Despite the rain having stopped, the asphalt was wet and Randy Krummenacher was again careful not to exaggerate and take risks, settling for the sixth fastest time which gives him a second row start for tomorrow’s Supersport race, scheduled to take place tomorrow, 29 September at 12.15pm local time.
Randy Krummenacher is calm and confident, the second row allowing him to fight for a strong result and continue to chase the dream of the world title.
#RK21: “We’ve had two strange days, the rain affecting both of yesterday’s practices and then a wet Tissot Superpole today. I decided not to push too hard or take any excessive risks, particularly because tomorrow’s race is expected to take place in the dry. I’m feeling positive, the second row will allow me to fight for the positions that count, and I’ll be doing my best to secure a good result. We’re now at the sharp end of the season and after Magny Cours we’ll be in Argentina and then Qatar for the final round over the weekend of 24-26 October. I continue to chase my life-long dream and will do everything possible to achieve it, well aware that I have the full support and professionalism of my team.”
