Press releases from the Moto3 and Moto2 teams after Sunday's race at the Circuit of The Americas:
BRILLIANT DOUBLE PODIUM FOR TEAM DEL CONCA GRESINI MOTO3 IN TEXAS
Moto3 standings after the third race in Austin, Texas:
What began as another session dominated by Aron Canet – easily the fastest rider in the first two practices – ended with dual surprises when Jorge Martin and then Romano Fenati pushed the young Spaniard off the top of the timesheet at the session’s end.
Fenati’s 2’16.273 – the fastest Moto3 lap of the weekend so far -- came on his final lap at Saturday’s FP3 under cool conditions and cloudy skies. Jorge Martin finished the session at the Circuit of the Americas track two-tenths back with Canet another two-tenths in arrears to end the session as third quickest.
Aron Canet ended Friday as the pole-position favorite with another practice at the top of the timesheet at Circuit of the Americas. Canet's 2'16.750 was the fastest time of the day in Moto3 and it kept him seven-tenths clear of second-fastest rider Joan Mir. Romano Fenati continued his strong form with a third-best time. But that still left him nearly a second slower than Canet.
Aron Canet set a blistering final lap in Friday's first practice to take the top spot in warming temperatures at the Circuit of the Americas track near Austin Texas. Canet's 2'16.820 left him as the only rider to break into the 2'16s in the 45-minute practice.
