Pol Espargaro leaves Jerez with the best lap time

The final pre-season test for the Moto2 category before the start of the season is officially over and in theses four days and ten practice sessions, the fastest rider was Pol Espargaro who posted the best lap over the rest of the field during yesterday’s mid-day session in 1’42.

636, and he was also also the quickest rider in today’s final brief session, however he was unable to match his previous day’s lap time.

Italtrans Racing Team duo Takaaki Nakagami and Julian Simon (who crashed yesterday) skipped today’s session but their lap times were good enough to give then second and third overall, respectively.

They were followed by Toni Elías and Scott Redding who topped the timesheets during the first two days of testing.
Esteve Rabat took his Tuenti HP 40 to sixth just 0.
014s faster than Aspar’s Moto2 riders Nico Terol and Jordi Torres, while Xavier Simeon, and Mika Kallio on the second Marc VDS bike, closed out the top ten with a little more than one second separating them from Espargaro.
Sergio Gadea who is replacing recovering Thomas Lüthi finished 29th overall, but the Spanish rider also suffered a crash today.

The first race of 2013 season will be in Qatar on April 7th, and Pol Espargaro remains the title favourite and at the moment it seems that the Kalex’s are slightly more competitive that the Suters, while Speed Up bikes seem to be encountering much more difficulty.
