The opening day of the Argentinean round at the San Juan Villicum Circuit played out in hot and sunny conditions. Track conditions, on the other hand, proved quite challenging for the riders, the surface dusty and slippery.
Hotter temperatures during the afternoon didn’t help the situation in terms of grip, and lap times remained considerably higher with respect to last year’s references. The first day concluded with Ryuichi Kiyonari in 16th and Leon Camier in 18th place.
Tomorrow’s final Free Practice session has been extended by 15 minutes, meaning that FP3 will take place from 10:30 to 11:05 am local time. The Superpole will follow at 13:00 and Race 1 at 16.00 local time.
