Steady Progress In Qualifying For Teluru Team JiR Web!ke

It’s been another day of experience and learning for Team JiR’s new rider – the young Japanese Tetsuta Nagashima.

The 21-year-old has shaved off around 1.4 seconds from his time on Thursday and will doubtless gain much more experience during the race.

The session was an exciting one, with Esteve Rabat taking pole position from Sandro Cortese. Cortese later crashed at the end of the session in a series of incidents that led to a red flag just as the session finished. There was a terrifying incident where Mika Kallio T-boned a stationary bike on track. Reports indicate that no-one has been injured in these crashes.

Tetsuta Nagashima - Rider
Best lap: 2m 04.036s
“I feel that compared to the last two days I’ve made some real improvements and found a good setting with the help of my experienced team and mechanics. During the very last few minutes of the qualifying session I was ready to put in 100% to try and make a good lap time but with five or six minutes to go I made some mistakes during those laps but still managed to record my best lap time of the weekend, so I know I’m going in the right direction. For me, all is positive at the moment but I want to try a few more things in the warm-up before I try my best in the race for both myself and the team. I’m looking forward to it!”
