2014 Phillip Island World Superbike FP2 Results: Lowes Makes His Mark

On his first day on the job, Alex Lowes tops his first timing sheet. The British Superbike champion, and twin brother of Sam, the World Supersport champion, recorded seven 1'31 laps on his Suzuki GSX-R1000. Marco Melandri, on the newly liveried silver Aprilia, adapted quickly to his new machine ahead of Davide Giugliano and Tom Sykes.

No Uragano Mich on the time sheet. I read that his crash wasn't too bad and that there were no serious injuries. Any inside information on that?

The top ten features all 10 factory riders from the 5 major manufacturers involved, separated by less than two thirds of a second.
