MOTORSPORT: Smith's all revved up for British Grand Prix
11:00am Saturday 31st August 2013 in Sport
Bradley Smith admits he cannot wait to race in front of his home fans this weekend.
The Oxford rider was ninth fastest in yesterday’s opening practice session, and improved to be eighth quickest in the second.
And Smith is now looking forward to a good result on home turf.
“It was great to ride in front of my home crowd and the amount of people here was amazing,” Smith said at the end of yesterday’s session.
“The British fans have always given me great support and today was no exception.
“It was a positive day because I found a good setting this morning and then it was a case of tweaking it to suit this track.
“For the first time I have tried all the tyre options for the front and rear in one day, so we have evaluated a lot and got a clear way to follow for the rest of the weekend.
“This track is certainly designed for MotoGP.
"It is so fast and open that you really get to explore the bike’s full potential.”
