Opening day’s action ends with Rabat ahead

Opening day’s action ends with Rabat ahead

In Moto2™ FP2 at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon, the leading three participants were Tito Rabat, Johann Zarco and Mika Kallio.

Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) set the fastest time of 1’53.838 to lead by 0.263s from Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) and also set an impressive pace throughout the session, registering consistently fast laps around the Spanish track.

Kallio trailed by 0.307s in third place and he will be determined to reduce that gap on Saturday as he aims to break his colleague’s winning streak and fight back in the title race.

Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team) was fourth quickest overall, courtesy of his best time from FP1 which saw him lead that session. Spanish pair Julian Simon (Italtrans Racing Team) and Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40) ended the day fifth and sixth respectively.

The overall top ten was completed by Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Sitag), Dominique Aegerter (Technomag carXpert), Jonas Folger (AGR Team) and Ricard Cardus (Tech 3).

Britons Gino Rea (AGT Rea Racing) and Sam Lowes (Speed Up) both crashed during Free Practice 2. Louis Rossi (SAG Team) was also forced to drop his bike at low speed to avoid hitting a barrier after running on. All three riders were ok.
