2014 Assen Moto2 FP2: Rabat Takes Control

Tito Rabat has ended at the top of the time sheets following another extremely tight Moto2 practice session at Assen. The Championship leader ended FP2 a mere eight hundredths of a second ahead of impressive rookie Sam Lowes and Suisse rider Dominique Aegerter. The top three were consistently a class above throughout and ended up separated by just over a tenth.

After leading the morning session Jonas Folger had to settle for fourth ahead of Jordi Torres and Johann Zarco. Sandro Cortese posted the seventh quickest lap ahead of Marc VDS rider Mika Kallio, a rejuvenated Ricard Cardus and Pons Kalex rider Luis Salom.
