He owns the Brno track...The Cardion company produces techno equipment for the healthcare industry, seems to be doing pretty well.

Depends how you look at it.
Shakedown session, right ?
Concept bike, right ?
Not a me too bike, right ?
Top bike about 1 second improvement from FP1 to 2.
Brough about 3 -1/2 improvement
Brough is on the same second as the second last bike which is a Kalex.
Fastest bike is a Kalex.
I'd say they are doing well, and much more telling will be Q and also how the lap times are at the end of the race, as in lap time degradation from tires going off song.

Sure, let's see. I'd be happy to see them do well.

Yes, a sled engine that depends on chassis, setup and rider for times.

Good bit of racing between the front two, and in groups or pairs down through the field. MM93 sure knows how to make an assertive pass...
