2011 ZX10 testing at Valencia
Sykes and Fujiwara had a 2 day test at Valencia with the new bikes. According to the press release they managed to get into the mid 1.34's on race tires. For comparison, the pole position time at this years WSBK race at Valencia was 1:34.220. I would think that the track would offer more grip during a WSBK weekend with a lot more bikes on the track. And they were probably using qualifying tires instead of race tires, so that time seems pretty respectable.
Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
