Positive opening day in Indonesia for Scott
The Free practice for the Pirelli Indonesia Round, the final event of the 2021 WorldSBK season, ended with Scott Redding in fifth place on the timesheets.
On the fascinating Mandalika International Street Circuit, located just a few metres from the ocean on the island of Lombok (Indonesia), Scott worked hard to get familiar with the new track and gather useful information ahead of the weekend’s races.
After familiarizing himself with the circuit, Scott gained confidence lap after lap in FP1. The British rider was one of the few riders to finish the session without changing tyres, setting his best time in the final minutes.
FP2 was a solid session for Scott who stayed on track for a long time with a convincing pace on the first long run (13 laps).

“I’m satisfied with what we did today. My first impressions of the circuit were really positive even though it was a little dirty this morning. But that’s normal for a new track. We worked a lot on race pace and tyre choice without focusing on the time attack. So I have to say that the sensations are definitely good”.
