Terol resumes form in Mugello

Terol resumes form in Mugello

Bankia Aspar’s Nicolas Terol resumed his position at the top of the timings in the 125cc field. The Spaniard was followed by Avant-AirAsia-Ajo team members Johann Zarco and Efrén Vázquez.

With warm weather expected all weekend at the Italian circuit, the 125cc riders commenced the first free practice in high temperatures, with World Championship leader Terol resuming his lead position after missing the race at Assen due to injury to his right hand. The Spaniard was 0.864s faster than Johann Zarco (Avant-AirAsia-Ajo), who crashed out at the end of the free practice session, and one second faster than Efrén Vázquez.

The front runners lead a top ten dominated by Spanish and German riders, with Sandro Cortese (Intact-Racing Team Germany) riding his Aprila fourth quickest with a time of 1’59.879, lone British rider Danny Kent (Red Bull Ajo MotorSport) 0.564s behind the German in fifth, Maverick Viñales (Blusens by Paris Hilton Racing Team) sixth, Jonas Folger (Red Bull Ajo MotorSport) seventh, team mates Héctor Faubel (Bankia Aspar Team) and Adrian Martín eighth and ninth fastest, and Spaniard Alberto Moncayo (Team Andalucía Banca Cívica) completing the top ten.

The fastest Italian rider in the single cylinder class was local wildcard rider Massimo Parziani (Faenza Racing), who posted the 12th fastest time, just 0.068s behind Blusens by Paris Hilton Racing Team’s Sergio Gadea.
