2012 Philip Island WSBK Warm Up - Checa Clears Off

Carlos Checa led Sunday's morning warm up from Philip Island by more than a half-second over Tom Sykes. Checa put in a string of 1'31 lap times that's only been rivaled throughout the entire weekend by Max Biaggi during Saturday's qualifying session.

 
Michel Fabrizio ended the session in third, nearly a second adrift of Checa's time, followed by Joan Lascorz and Sylvain Guintoli. Biaggi, who appears to be the only one within a sout of matching Checa's race pace, finished 0.983 seconds back in sixth.
