Thursday action rounded up with Rabat at top

In the second Moto2™ session of the day on Thursday at the Iveco Daily TT Assen it was Tito Rabat who led the way, with Sam Lowes and Dominique Aegerter just behind him on the timesheet.

The intermediate class standings leader Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) registered an impressive 1’37.869 lap and demonstrated a strong race pace to underline his strength on the first day of practice in the Netherlands.

Rabat did not have such a good time in FP1 due to technical problems and a brief ride the wrong way down pit lane which resulted in a fine from Race Direction.

In FP2 with another new livery rookie Lowes (Speed Up) impressed again in second place (0.081s) at a circuit where he has previous experience, whilst Aegerter (Technomag carXpert) was third overall – having recently tried a MotoGP™ machine with Avintia Racing in the post-Barcelona race test.

Completing the top five were FP1’s fastest rider Jonas Folger (AGR Team) and Spaniard Jordi Torres (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2), both just under half a second behind Rabat.

The top ten was completed by Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing), Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP), Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team), Ricard Cardus (Tech 3) and Luis Salom (Pons HP 40). For Salom it was a chance to test his fitness after fracturing a finger in Barcelona and he ended the day 0.662s off P1.
