BSB: Reynolds shows Guintoli the ropes

Former BSB champ gives incoming Frenchman a few tips on how to tackle Snetterton

NEW SUZUKI British Superbike rider, Sylvain Guintoli, joined triple BSB title winner, John Reynolds, at Snetterton race circuit today, as the Frenchman added the Norfolk facility to his list of track visits in preparation for the 2009 season.

Guintoli, who has already visited Brands Hatch Indy, Cadwell and Oulton Park circuits, since signing to ride in next year's series, met up with Reynolds to learn the lines and techniques needed at the super-fast Snetterton track.

Talking after several laps in the track safety car, Guintoli commented, "Snetterton is really good and quite different to those circuits I have visited already. Despite not looking as technical as Cadwell or Oulton Park, you need to be precise and very confident for the fast corners. Having John with me today has been a great bonus. His experience around here is huge and he has been able to show me some good techniques and areas where I can make up time."

Guintoli will now enjoy a winter break before getting in visits to the final few circuits in January, before pre-season testing commences.
