Rins pips Folger in Warm-Up

Alex Rins, starting on pole position for the Moto3™ race at Brno, has topped the Warm-Up session on Sunday morning. As the chances of rain appeared to increase, the Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider edged out Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3’s Jonas Folger - who won the race last year - and Team Calvo’s Maverick Viñales.

Rain did not fall in the Warm-Up sessions for any of the three classes, but ever-darkening clouds continued to pose a great threat at Brno. Rins set the morning pace with his lap time of 2’08.451, just 68 thousandths of a second up on Folger and just over a tenth quicker than Maverick Viñales. Isaac Viñales (Ongetta-Centre Seta) and Rins’ teammate Alex Marquez rounded out the top five.

In a change to the usual schedule, Brno’s Moto3™ race will come after Moto2™ and MotoGP™, beginning at 2:30pm local time (GMT +2).
