Alvaro Bautista was quickest at the end of the second session, heading off a challenge by Toprak Razgatlioglu. Bautista's teammate Michael Ruben Rinaldi was third quickest in a session that was seconds quicker than this morning's tentative outing on new tarmac.

Nearly 0.5s to Toprak, then another 0.5s to Rinaldi, amazing gaps in the current competitive climate.

For some reason I just don't see this track as being around 4 years from now. does the local or state governments have a stake in it? As an old asphalt paving guy it looks like it'll need a complete repave in under 3 years.

Yes Richard they have just done some more repaving. About a year after the first races.

Jonathan Rea not impressed with the very new asphalt;

Jonathan Rea, stated: 'This morning the track was so dirty. And even in the afternoon I felt OK on the racing line, in most areas, but some areas are critical. Off the racing line was a nightmare. The set-up we arrived with, considering the grip level that we would face in FP1, was quite far from our base set-up, from a balance and position point of view' from MotorcycleSports.net

I'm hoping the championship won't be decided this weekend.
