Barberá ahead again in second 250cc practice

Barberá ahead again in second 250cc practice

Pepe World Team representative Héctor Barberá was the paceman again in Saturday’s 250cc free practice.

Héctor Barberá will go in search of his fourth pole position in five Grands Prix this afternoon at Brno having been the fastest rider in both 250cc practice sessions so far at the Cardion ab Czech Republic Grand Prix.

The Aprilia-equipped Spanish rider put down a best lap of 2’02.416 at the conclusion of the session to keep himself in front of the pack, though he was pushed hard by compatriot and rival Álvaro Bautista who lapped around a tenth of a second behind him and briefly topped the timesheet towards the end of the practice.

World Championship leader Hiroshi Aoyama (Scot Racing) lapped with a similar pace to Bautista, whose team-mate Mike di Meglio was fourth fastest and was less than two tenths off Barberá’s pace.

Roberto Locatelli (Metis Gilera), Mattia Pasini (Team Toth Aprilia), Marco Simoncelli (Metis Gilera), Héctor Faubel (Valencia CF - Honda SAG), Alex Debon (Aeropuerto-Castello-Blusens) and Ratthapark Wilairot (Thai Honda PTT SAG) completed the top ten.
