Jerez Private Moto2 Test - Dry Last Day Sees Nakagami Under Lap Record

The private test for a number of Moto2 teams at Jerez turned into a washout for the first two days, with only KTM's MotoGP bike circulating in the hands of test riders Alex Hofmann and Mika Kallio. Fortunately for the teams, the track dried on Saturday, allowing the teams present to go out. Not everyone who rode was fitted with a transponder, meaning some names are missing from the timesheets, most notably Alex Marquez.

Monday was a different kettle of fish, the sun returning and the wind dying down to much more tolerable levels, the assembled teams all finding time to put in plenty of laps.

If the first day of the combined WSBK test was hampered by a wet track at the start, on Wednesday, it was fog which delayed the action. The fog blanketed the track at 10am, when the track was due to open, but it lifted quickly in the warmth of the Andalusian sun. An extra ten minutes was tacked on to the end of the day, to compensate for the loss of the hour or so in the morning.
