125cc MotoGP Practice

Bradley Smith’s best lap of 1:40.116 made the Bancaja Aspar rider the quickest of the 125cc class at Valencia for the final round, as he beat Marc Marquez to top spot on the timesheet by 0.103s.

Red Bull Ajo Motorsport rider Marquez and his only remaining title rival Nico Terol (Bancaja Aspar) were separated by 0.295 of a second in the session, as the latter showed no repeat signs of the engine problems that had marked his first practice earlier in the day.

Efrén Vazquez (Tuenti Racing) and Pol Espargaro (Tuenti Racing) completed the top five and were the final two riders to get within a second of Smith. They were also the last two riders to break the 1:41 barrier for the day.

Sandro Cortese (Avant Mitsubishi Ajo), Adrián Martín (Team Aeroport de Castelló), Esteve Rabat (Blusens-STX), Johann Zarco (WTR San Marino Team) and Luis Salom (Stipa-Molenaar Racing) completed the top 10.

Tommaso Gabrielli (Ongetta Team) had a crash early on at Valencia in Spain, and completed just four laps in the session.
