Aragon Moto2: Friday Practice Results



In a change to normal scheduling, Moto2 experimented with being the first class out on track for both the morning and afternoon sessions and it was Andrea Iannone who laid down the first marker with a best lap of 1’56.223 on board his Fimmco Speed Up machine in the early practice at Motorland Aragon, Round 13 of the 2010 MotoGP Championship.

The Italian, who led the unofficial test at the circuit at the start of July, was 0.061s faster than Julián Simón, with whom he is battling closely with for second spot in the Championship standings.

In third overall was Mattia Pasini, riding this weekend as a replacement for the injured Michael Ranseder, and who set the quickest time of the afternoon session which was less affected by the rain than the other two classes.

His local rival Alex de Angelis was close behind him, the San Marino rider in at the JiR team once more this weekend.

Forward Racing’s Claudio Corti was fifth fastest in the combined timesheets ahead of two Britons, with Scott Redding looking back in form after the injuries he sustained in the tragic events at Misano and his compatriot Kev Coghlan impressing as a wildcard having won the Moto2 race at Aragón in the Spanish National series earlier this year.

Completing the top ten were Tom Lüthi (Interwetten Moriwaki), Championship leader Toni Elías (Gresini Racing) at just under half a second off Iannone, with Hector Faubel (Marc VDS Racing) just behind.
