Day 2 at the Portimao WSBK test

Shane Byrne resumed his status as the rider to beat so far during day two of World Superbike testing at Portimao, the Brit breaking the lap record in the process.

With the circuit finally reaching a state with which to set representative lap times, Byrne, who skipped the damp morning session, went straight back to the top of the timesheets with a best lap of 1min 43.294secs – just under a tenth quicker than Troy Bayliss' lap record and also on Pirelli race rubber.

Shinya Nakano, meanwhile, got the better of Aprilia team-mate Max Biaggi, albeit down in 17th and 18th positions respectively, two seconds from the lead.
