The five Australians are at Lonato for the RoK Cup International Final. Qualifying is set to commence Thursday night (Australian time) followed by the opening heats.
First Day of the Rok Cup International Final for 2016: on the newly renovated South Garda circuit drivers from all over the world have descended on the circuit to prepare for qualifying which will take place Thursday.
On Wednesday, in addition to free practice sessions, the drivers and teams also underwent official check and scruiteneering which was done with ease and perfection by the ROK Staff. This was also aided by the use of the official app: ‘Rok Cup International’ which helped drivers follow every phase of the event with precise information at exactly the right time throughout the day.
The day started on a dry track but was soon followed by rain, although this didn’t deter any of the drivers who were keen to gain a wet weather setup with the forecast also for rain through qualifying.
Among the VIP’s at the track was 5 times World Motorcycling Champion, Mick Doohan, who spoke to the ROK Cup staff at Lonato.
