First shot of Toseland testing his WSB Yamaha YZF-R1

Britain's JT gets cracking with his WSB future as he tests the bike he'll be hoping to win the championship with next season

JAMES TOSELAND is at Portimao, Portugal, testing out his new World Superbike Yamaha YZF-R1, just days after Ben Spies wrapped up the WSB championship.

Toseland has been at work getting used to the bike and the track, making basic setting changes and riding position adjustments to get comfortable with the bike rather than go for outright lap times.

Our man at the track has said that even though Toseland has never ridden at Portimao, he was on the pace within just 10 laps, lapping within a couple of seconds of the rest of the pack. You can see the Portimao WSB test times here.
