Rain Halts Friday Moto2, 125 Jerez Test

MotoGP News

Rain played a deciding factor on Friday afternoon at the Jerez circuit, where the remainder of the combined session and individual Moto2 and 125cc sessions were effectively nullified by the weather conditions.

The skies opened at midday, by which stage Tom Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) had already set what was to be the fastest lap of the day, and the timesheet order was not altered for the remainder of Friday.

Indeed, Kev Coghlan, Mike di Meglio and Valentin Debise were the only Moto2 riders who went out again after midday, with Ricky Cardús the sole rider to brave the rain during the Moto2-only session later in the afternoon.

It was a similar story for the 125cc class, where the order was unchanged by the end of the day as well following the midday report.

Nico Terol remained top, but there were more 125cc riders who took to the track in wet conditions with Johann Zarco, Sandro Cortese, Héctor Faubel, Sergio Gadea and Sarath Kumar amongst a handful trying out the wet surface.

Times were unimproved, and during the 125cc-only session Jakub Kornfeil, riding again after suffering a small fracture in his right leg at the Valencia Test three weeks ago, was the sole rider on track.
