Terol tightens grip on 125 lead

A last minute fast lap delivered by Bankia Aspar rider Nico Terol pushed the Spaniard to the top of the charts at the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland at the Sachsenring circuit, in an all Spanish top four FP2.

The second practice session for the single cylinder class was held under sunny skies and warmer temperatures than the day’s earlier session, with a breeze of 22km/h blowing steadily across the track. Terol set a time of 1'28.483, 0.375s faster than his earlier time, to jump ahead of his team mate Héctor Faubel by 7 thousandths of a second. Faubel, who had dominated the timings for most of the 40 minute practice, posted a time of 1'28.490, which was 0.635s quicker than his FP1 fastest lap.

Maverick Viñales (Blusens by Paris Hilton Racing Team) upped his pace to grab the third spot in the session with a time of 1'28.655, with Sergio Gadea (Blusens by Paris Hilton Racing Team) again completing a Spanish top four with a 1'28.971, the last of the riders under the 1’29” mark.

Sandro Cortese (Intact Racing Team Germany) was again the fastest German in the field, posting a time of 1'29.074, an improvement of 0.813s from the morning and putting him fifth fastest of the day. Marcel Schrötter (Mahindra Racing) was sixth fastest in the session, but Efrén Vázquez (Avant-AirAsia-Ajo) who had an early runoff, posted an earlier practice session time of 1'29.101 to keep him in sixth place for the day.

The second fastest German in the 125cc field was Marcel Schrötter of the Mahindra Racing team in seventh, followed by Luis Salom of the RW Racing GP team in eighth, the young Jonas Folger (Red Bull Ajo Motorsport) ninth and Schrötter’s team mate Danny Webb tenth fastest of the day.

The third Bankia Aspar rider, Adrián Martín, crashed out of the session but ended the day in 14th spot, while Australian wildcard Jack Miller (RZT Racing) made a good showing, posting the 20th fastest of the field.
