In the second (FP2) practice session for the Moto3 grid at Le Mans, Alex Marquez – the younger brother of MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez – set the pace.

Marquez was followed closely by Alex Rins and the current Moto3 points leader Jack Miller.

En route to the top time, Marquez set the fastest-ever lap on a Moto3 machine – a 1:43.395. He led the session by 0.041 of a second ahead of from his Estrella Galicia 0,0 teammate Rins, while Miller was third, 0.048 of a second back.

FP1’s fastest rider Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team) and Italian youngster Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3) were both in the top five.

Meanwhile, the top ten also featured Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46), John McPhee (SAXOPRINT RTG), Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing), rookie Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and Francesco Bagnaia (SKY Racing Team VR46).

There were light crashes for Alessandro Tonucci (CIP Mahindra) and Niccolo Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN) who were both able to continue, but French wildcard Reynald Castillon (Team RMS) was carried away from a highside and later ruled out of the rest of the weekend due a left wrist injury.
