2014 Sachsenring Moto2 FP1 Result: Corsi Edges Aegerter And Kallio

Simone Corsi leads the way in the Moto2 class, topping the first session of free practice at the Sachsenring. Corsi's advantage is small, however, with both Dominique Aegerter and Mika Kallio within three hundredths of a second of the Italian. Championship leader Tito Rabat ended FP1 in 4th, a tenth off the pace of Corsi, and ahead of last year's winner Jordi Torres.

The Moto2 class, too, had plenty of fallers. Mattia Pasini was an early crasher, but he was joined throughout the session by Johann Zarco, Julian Simon and Sandro Cortese. All escaped without serious injury.

Nina Prinz...

It's great to see another female on the grid... hoping she has a good strong weekend.

That is just all kinds of cool...

Why?

Honest question...

Motorsports are different than ball and stick sports. If there was direct physical contact (i.e. tackling) I would agree with you, but the right wrist of females and males works the same.

Agreed, but a female

Agreed, but a female championship would help get more females into racing and will aid there chances of getting to the level of the male racers, currently Maria Herrera is the fastest i know, and her wild card appearance last year wasn't impressive, and look what positions is Ana Carasco scoring, so......... you know what i mean

Ahhh great point

Sorry but I think think this

Sorry but I think think this is putting the cart well before the horse. You build things from the grass roots up, not from the top down. Encourage women at club and national level and the problem of no elite female competitors will disappear.

Nothing is more encouraging

Nothing is more encouraging than a shot at championship.
A women's championship will give that encouragement :-)
