It is good to see that "the old guy" still has what it takes. He had the fastest times on the new HMC Ducati.

I hate Chandler(ride for points p#ssy). He's at his home track he should run good times there. I hope Pascal comes back on another ride and kicks the crap out of them! Hanson(HMC owner) is a real scum bag to deal with a rider the way he did with Pascal.

I agree about the treatment of Pascal and I also hope he (Picotte) does well.

Test Report AMA Chevy Trucks Superbike
Date March 28, 2002
Circuit Laguna Seca International Speedway

Chandler fastest at Laguna

HMC Ducati rider Doug Chandler wrapped up a three-day test program fastest
overall, clocking a 1’25.65 lap time, more than half a second faster than
yesterday’s front man Nicky Hayden and only 0.28 seconds off the official
lap record. The newly-hired Ducati pilot ran consistently in the low 26s,
setting his fastest time on the last lap of a ten lap stint.

The team clearly achieved its goal of using the three-day test to make the
bike totally comfortable for Doug.

“We just keep getting better and better each day,” said Chandler. “I think
we’re off to a great start and I feel we can go even better with more laps
under my belt. I couldn’t be happier with either the bike or the team.”

The HMC crew will take a few days sabbatical before heading to LA to prepare
for the second round of the AMA Chevy Trucks Superbike series at Fontana
Raceway.

The new Californian raceway sports a very different layout to that of Laguna
Seca, but this doesn’t faze Chandler. “Sure I have a slight disadvantage as
I didn’t test there like most other riders, but the way things went these
past three days, I’m very optimistic.”

I was as depresses as the rest of the Duc riders after Daytona, however, if the synergy between rider and team isn't there.....I think Mitch did the right thing in getting a rider with the *fire* to win...not merely ride.


I'm working a sig logo [email protected] it, cut me some slack!
