Terol commences Indianapolis action in front

Terol commences Indianapolis action in front

Spanish rider Nico Terol was the fastest rider in the first 125cc practice run of the Indy weekend, with rain arriving at the end of the hour long session.

Last year’s Indianapolis 125cc race winner Nico Terol (Jack & Jones Team) showed his strengths again at the famous American circuit as the action got underway on Friday, the Spaniard lapping in 1’50.603 to head the FP1 timesheet.

The 20 year-old, who was also victorious in Brno two weeks ago, laid down his best time on the 20th of his 21 laps, before precipitation brought the riders back into their pit-boxes before the end of the session.

Second fastest was Terol’s former team-mate Simone Corsi (Fontana Racing), who was a tenth of a second off the pace man, whilst Bradley Smith (Bancaja Aspar), Sandro Cortese (Ajo Interwetten) and Marc Márquez (Red Bull KTM) all went round within 0.5s of Terol.

With Efrén Vázquez (Derbi Racing Team), Stefan Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer Racing) Sergio Gadea (Bancaja Aspar), Julián Simón (Bancaja Aspar) and Joan Olivé (Derbi Racing Team) all at the business end of the timesheet there were six Spanish riders in the top ten.
