Vazquez ends day one in Austin on the pace

The opening day of the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas saw Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) on the pace in the Moto3™ class, ahead of Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team) in the top three.

Honda equipped Vazquez set down a late 2’16.696s best lap to outpace KTM rider Miller by 0.129s, whilst third fastest rider Viñales was over half a second behind – also on a KTM.

Jakub Kornfeil (Calvo Team) and Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) were also in the top five, both well under a second off Vazquez’ pace setting lap.

Niccolo Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN), Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0), Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3), Enea Bastianinni (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) and Eric Granado (Calvo Team) were all in the top ten.
