Espargaró quickest as Jerez day two gets off to slow start

Espargaró quickest as Jerez day two gets off to slow start

It was Tuenti HP 40’s Pol Espargaró who was on the pace at the halfway point at the Jerez Moto2™ test today as he edged Italtrans Racing Team’s Julián Simón and Marc VDS Racing Team’s Scott Redding.

Despite being met with sunshine on the second day of Moto2™ testing at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain, fog at the track hindered the majority of riders from going out before at least 12:OOCET.

Once track action did get underway, teams and riders were able to get their first bit of dry time since Valencia last week, with Espargaró setting the pace at the 2pm mid-day point with a 1.43’689. Simón was only 0.13s behind, as Redding was only 0.25s off the pace.

Simón’s teammate Takaaki Nakagami looks comfortable at the track in fourth, as he was ahead of yesterday’s pace-man, Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2’s Nico Terol, who is making himself known as a serious title contender. Sixth spot went to his teammate Jordi Torres.

Moto2™ teams will now have time to run by themselves for a period, after sharing the track with Moto3™ in the morning.
