Marc VDS Racing’s Tito Rabat at Jerez

2014 Jerez Moto2 Friday Practice Results

Federal Oil Gresini Moto2’s Xavier Simeon was quickest during the second free practice of the Gran Premio bwin de España at Jerez.

Finishing second and third were Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Takaaki Nakagami (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia), respectively, though Tito Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) was fastest overall on Friday.

A lap of 1:43.752 meant Simeon was just 0.088 of a second faster than Cortese in second, while Cortese’s fellow Kalex rider Takaaki Nakagami was a 0.239 of a second behind the FP2 leader.

However high track temperatures meant that none of the top 11 riders improved their FP1 times. Rabat led the way on combined times with a 1’43.486s from the cooler morning session.

Rabat continued his strong practice form in fourth and Dominique Aegerter (Technomag CarXpert) was fifth, both riders involved in FP2 incidents with Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP), resulting in some heated gestures.

The top 10 in FP2 also included Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2), Simone Corsi (NGM Forward Racing), Jonhann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham), Marcel Schrotter (Tech 3) and Moto2 Rookie Jonas Folger (AGR Team).

Just one second separated the top 18 riders in FP2 as Moto2 continued to prove its competitiveness. Maverick Viñales (Pons HP 40) and Alex De Angelis (Tasca Racing Moto2) both suffered crashes but were able to walk away unhurt.

Azlan Shah (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia) also crashed at Turn 4 in the closing seconds of FP2, though fortunately he too was uninjured.
