The final practice of Friday at Silverstone saw the Moto2™ FP2 workout led by Tito Rabat at the Hertz British Grand Prix, with Simone Corsi and Jonas Folger also at the business end of the timesheet.

Standings leader Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) topped the afternoon practice with a 2’08.652, highlighting his determination to maintain his good form, following his win last time out in the Czech Republic.

Experienced Italian Corsi (NGM Forward Racing) and young German Folger (AGR Team) were the two riders to get closest to Rabat’s pace, respectively 0.087s and 0.174s behind the Spaniard in second and third.

Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) and Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40) were fourth and fifth, whilst Viñales’ colleague Salom was down in 34th after a big highside in the session. The Spaniard walked away from the crash.

Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team), Sam Lowes (Speed Up), Dominique Aegerter (Technomag carXpert), Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Mattia Pasini (NGM Forward Racing) completed the top ten, with Pasini 0.7s down on Rabat’s best time.

At the foot of the timesheet 50 year-old veteran Jeremy McWilliams lapped just over eight seconds off the pace, debuting the Brough Superior Racing team’s Taylor Made machine. McWilliams took 3.4s off his best time from FP1 in the afternoon and will look to get closer to the rest of the field on Saturday.
