Solid start to Silverstone practice sessions for John McPhee
The opening day at Silverstone – John McPhee’s home race on the Moto3 calendar – was a solid one, with steady progress throughout the day.
Whilst lower down the order in FP1, John moved up to P14 in the second session, feeling more comfortable with the direction of his bike setup and his acclimatisation to the track.
Whilst happy with the day’s performance, he will be looking for further progress in FP3 to set him up for a strong Qualifying.
“The first practice was a difficult start to the weekend. Thankfully in the second practice we made a good improvement. We rode much faster and I am just one second behind the front. We need to continue this way tomorrow and hopefully we can have a good day.”
