Marquez, Binder, Navarro within a tenth on Day 2

It’s close at the top on Thursday, with three different bikes in the top three…

Alex Marquez (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) was the fastest man on the second day of the Official Moto2™ Test at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto, with a 1:41.208 enough to edge out the KTM of Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Ajo) by 0.076 and the Speed Up of Jorge Navarro (+Ego Speed Up) by 0.094. That continued the trend of close competition from the first day of track action, although conditions were much windier on Day 2.

Behind the top trio came Lorenzo Baldassarri (FlexBox HP40) in fourth, less than a tenth back, with Day 1’s quickest man, Luca Marini (Sky Racing Team VR46), completing the top five. Sam Lowes (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) took P6, ahead of Remy Gardner (ONEXOX TKKR SAG Team), Marcel Schrötter (Dynavolt Intact GP) and EG 0,0 Marc VDS new arrival Xavi Vierge.

Enea Bastianini (Italtrans Racing Team) completed the top ten and was the fastest rookie despite a crash, with Iker Lecuona (American Racing KTM) splitting him from the next debutants: Nicolo Bulega (Sky Racing Team VR46) in P12 and Jorge Martin (Red Bull KTM Ajo) just behind. Tom Lüthi (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Bo Bendsneyder (NTS RW Racing GP) locked out the top 15.
