Andrea Locatelli led rain-affected World Superbike Free Practice One (FP1) Friday morning at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, in Australia. Riding his Pata Yamaha by Prometeon YZF-R1 on the newly repaved 2.762-mile (4.445 km) road course, the Italian turned a 1:29.197, which broke the All-Time Lap Record of 1:29.230 set by Tom Sykes in 2020.

Kawasaki’s Alex Lowes was second-best with a time of 1:29.303 on his factory Ninja ZX-10RR, and Lowes’ twin brother Sam Lowes was third-quickest with a lap of 1:29.717 on his Elf Marc VDS Racing Ducati Panigale V4 R.

American Garrett Gerloff finished FP1 in 18th with a best time of 1:31.437 on his Bonovo Action BMW M 1000 RR.
