Relentless Terol fastest in FP3

Relentless Terol fastest in FP3

Bankia Aspar’s Nico Terol topped the third and final 125 class free practice at the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland Saturday morning, ahead of Sergio Gadea and Héctor Faubel.

A sunny final practice session saw the Championship leader move to the front of the pack once again, after leading the previous two practices sessions at the Sachsenring circuit. The 22 year old Spaniard’s best time of 1'28.049 came in response to team mate Héctor Faubel’s charge to the top in the last minutes of the session. Terol was 0.069s ahead of Sergio Gadea (Blusens by Paris Hilton Racing Team) whose time of 1'28.118 put him second in the rankings, ahead of Faubel who finally finished third with a time of 1'28.215.

Maverick Viñales (Blusens by Paris Hilton Racing Team) was fourth with a best lap of 1'28.323, while Frenchman Johann Zarco (Avant-AirAsia-Ajo) trailed the Spaniard by 0.016s to put him in fifth. Efrén Vázquez rode off the track but returned to finish 0.073s behind team mate Zarco.

Sandro Cortese (Intact Racing Team Germany) was again the fastest German in the field, finishing seventh with a lap of 1'28.443, followed by fellow countryman Jonas Folger (Red Bull Ajo Motorsport) and Alberto Moncayo (Team Andalucía Banca Cívica). Luis Salom (RW Racing GP) completed the top ten riders with a lap of 1'28.614.

Marcel Schrötter (Mahindra Racing) had a run off and crash in the gravel just before posting a time to put him 11th in the timings.
