from a press release by Xerox Ducati:


Park (UK), Friday 5th 2008: in heavy rain persisted for the entire day today at Park, the Ducati Xerox Troy Bayliss and Michel battled against the elements and tough competition to conclude afternoon’s first qualifying in first and fifteenth place

Morning practice saw Troy a lap time that was close to a faster than any other on track, and although lap times much tighter during the qualifying session, it was again who recorded the quickest lap to take yet provisional pole.

It is perhaps not that the other riders at the of the pack today mainly the British wildcard contingent, all of are more than used to this particular track in the

Michel Fabrizio’s very lap of the afternoon was also his fastest. The rider and his team changed throughout the qualifying session having only found a solution in the final minutes, did not have enough time to record the times that particular set-up promised.

Bayliss 1m44.3s

Well pretty happy as we’ve had two wet today and I was fastest in both. made some good throughout the day and so are quite satisfied, as not really possible to go any quicker I did in these conditions. It’s very wet and windy too, so hoping it may improve tomorrow but said that and knowing the UK, I be surprised if it stays wet for all the practice before clearing up just the races!

As the results show, are several Donington specialists with the British wildcards all up near the top, but I guess you say that I did my apprenticeship here too so hoping for a good weekend.

Fabrizio 1m47.1s

This went a lot better than the session but unfortunately we only a good tyre in the last few of the afternoon’s qualifying and so I ran out of time. If have had the chance to complete a few laps on that tyre, the lap would have surely got Anyway, it wasn’t easy and I hope conditions will be better tomorrow so that we can some more changes and on the lap times.

For me, it was not to go any faster then I did. The set up of my wasn’t right in the morning, but we to make some changes and it for qualifying in the afternoon. The we made changes for the last five and I think we went in the wrong I feel we have a lot of information what to do know. I crashed in the conditions this afternoon and my … a bit.

Upon announcing the news, a disappointed Johnson said:

my knee still isn’t enough to ride this and I’ve had to withdraw from the which is a huge disappointment for all of us. two months since I sustained the at Skerries and although I managed to at the Ulster GP last month, I was in a lot of pain. I could have out there this weekend but the simply isn’t strong to ride a Superbike at this of competition so withdrawing was the only option.’

‘It would been a superb experience for me and the team and I’m really to have been handed a card’ but sadly it wasn’t to be. I’m still receiving physio on the knee and am doing all I can to be out on the bike this season so, I’ll be able to compete at the round of the British Superbike at Brands Hatch.
