Well, we finally learned a rider can run off at Laguna's T6 and survive:

For the Frenchman, the first 15 minutes wasn’t without incident as the Kawasaki rider ran off track at turn 6 before gently laying his ZX-R machine down in the gravel.

Meanwhile, Sykes broke the Superbike track record during Superpole. 1:21.811!

Tom is has really come into his own. 3 seconds faster than Buby (yes, I know Buby rides a lower spec machine). By comparison, Bradl's 2013 pole was 1 1:21.1. Lorenzo did a 20.5 in 12 and Stoner a 21.3 before that.
