Acosta sets Moto2™ private Jerez test pace

The 2021 Moto3™ World Champion was 0.2s ahead of Chantra as the intermediate class go testing in Andalucia

Just like their Moto3™ counterparts, the Moto2™ World Championship field are at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto for some private testing action ahead of this weekend’s Official Portimao Test.

Topping the timesheets on Tuesday was Pedro Acosta (Red Bull KTM Ajo) with a 1:41.549, a lap good enough to see the 2021 Moto3™ World Champion finish 0.2s ahead of Somkiat Chantra (Idemitsu Honda Team Asia), with Acosta’s new teammate Albert Arenas ending the day in third. 

The intermediate class will be on track in Jerez on Tuesday and Wednesday, before the teams make the short journey up to Portimao for the Official Test on the 17th, 18th and 19th of March. In the meantime, you can keep up with the times from Jerez via the circuit's live timing feature.
