Simone Corsi was the fastest rider in the first Moto2 practice at Sachsenring for Round 8 of the MotoGP Championship, setting a best time of 1’26.306 on his JiR Motobi machine.

That placed the Italian 0.218s clear of Gabor Talmacsi (Fimmco Speed Up) who was second.

Talmasci had led with his fourth from last lap of the session – a 1’26.524 – but six minutes before the end Corsi shot up from 16th place and into first with his effort.

Alex Baldolini (Caretta Technology Race Dept) completed the top three motorcycles at just under nine-hundredths behind Talmacsi.

Julián Simón (Mapfre Aspar) had a session which included a fall towards the end, but by then the Spaniard had set his fastest time to place fourth quickest.

Championship leader Toni Elías (Gresini Racing) went down too, this time towards the start of the session, but returned to set the fifth fastest time of the hour just over half a second off Corsi’s pace.

Alex Debón (Aeroport de Castelló-Ajo) was sixth as he avoided falling when running off during the session, with the top ten completed by Sergio Gadea (Tenerife 40 Pons), Roberto Rolfo (Italtrans STR), Shoya Tomizawa (Technomag-CIP) and Andrea Iannone (Fimmco Speed Up). Thomas Lüthi (Interwetten Moriwaki Racing), currently second in the overall standings, was 15th.
