Robertino Pietri Fourth on Day of Mixed Fortunes for Palmeto Kawasaki

Kenny Noyes started from the pole and had worked all weekend with the team to find a set-up that would allow him to keep a strong pace for the entire 17 laps but he was taken out by a rider trying an impossible move on the first lap. Robertino Pietri rode an excellent race, running toward the end of the race at a very competitive pace.

Robertini Pietri (Fourth) "I have to be pleased with that fourth place because it was important to pick up points in the opener. After qualifying, I thought we would be able to run at the front and fight for a podium position, but with the temperature change the feeling was not the same as yesterday. We werent quite past enough to get on the box, but it was a big improvement over last year when we were tenth here. Now we just have to keep improving in the next races."

Kenny Noyes (Pole Position--DNF) "It was a perfect weekend right up until Dani Rivas took me out in a crazy attempt to go from fourth to first in one corner of the first lap. Were fortunate that there are nine races left and the bike and team are working perfectly so we are still in with a good chance of fighting for the title. Looking at the lap times, I know we would been there for a good scrap with Carmelo (Morales) for the win, I cant wait for the next round, a Superbike double-header in Motorland.

Lucas de Ulacla (Twenty-first) "It was a good weekend for us. We worked hard and improved our times every time out. I was able to make up a lot of places coming from the back of the grid and we finished 21st, very close to the goal we set for a top-20 finish. The team worked hard for me and Im very grateful. Too bad it will be such a long wait for round 2. Im ready for it now.
