Pace setter Kent shows rivals the way

Danny Kent was the quickest rider on track in the Moto3™ FP2 outing at the Hertz British Grand Prix, with Niccolo Antonelli and Alex Rins also occupying top three spots.

Englishman Kent (Red Bull Husqvarna Ajo) ended Friday as the fastest Moto3 rider at his home Grand Prix, registering a 2’15.572 lap at the end of the afternoon session to lead the way by 0.058s from Italian rider Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN).

Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) was just 0.062s down on Kent in third, with Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team) and Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) also in the top five.

Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0), Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing), Brad Binder (Ambrogio Racing), John McPhee (SAXOPRINT RTG) and Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) completed the top ten.

The lap times between the riders were extremely tight, especially considering that at 5.9km Silverstone is the longest Grand Prix circuit on the calendar, with the top 20 split by just 1.012s.

Championship frontrunner Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) led FP1 in the morning with a 2'16.439 lap, but was down in 23rd place in FP2 as he experimented with a new setting.
