First day concludes with Rabat on top

First day concludes with Rabat on top

As the first day’s riding at the bwin Grand Prix České republiky came to a close, the Moto2™ combined practice timesheet was headed by Tito Rabat, who outpaced Mika Kallio and Sandro Cortese overall.

Standings leader Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) set the fastest time of the day in FP1, with his 2’03.126 effort quicker than anyone could manage in an FP2 session which commenced on a wet track, with the sun almost drying the asphalt by the end of the second session.

Second quickest overall was Rabat’s teammate Kallio who was just 0.142s behind the Spaniard on the combined timesheet - with his best lap from FP2.

Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Dominique Aegerter (Technomag carXpert) were third and fourth overall, courtesy of FP1 times. It was confirmed on Friday that Aegerter will test the NGM Forward Racing team’s Forward Yamaha bike in a MotoGP™ test at Brno on Monday.

Completing Friday’s combined top ten were Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2), Julian Simon (Italtrans Racing Team), Jonas Folger (AGR Team), Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing), Marcel Schrotter (Tech 3) and Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40). Viñales in tenth was 0.549s off P1.
