Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test 1pm Wednesday Times: Iannone Leads Sykes

The Jerez circuit is packed, with 27 riders from 3 different series all cutting laps. Andrea Iannone is fastest overall on the Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP bike, already under Jorge Lorenzo race lap record. Tom Sykes has also matched that feat on the Kawasaki WorldSBK machine, a sign that the resurfaced track is a good deal quicker.

Cal Crutchlow has a busy work schedule, with three different bikes in the LCR Honda garage: one 2017 standard bike, and two variations of the 2018 prototype debuted at Valencia. Crutchlow is third quickest, ahead of the Ducatis MotoGP team of Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso.

Jonathan Rea is sixth quickest overall, and second fastest WorldSBK rider. Rea took a tumble shortly after noon, falling at the very fast Turn 12, though he escaped without obvious injury. Pol Espargaro was another faller, crashing at Turn 3 and briefly causing a red flag, though the KTM MotoGP man was perfectly fine.

Testing will continue until 6pm this evening.

No complaints of the two different tires used affecting the other riders???  Imagine that???

The difference, apparently, is that the bikes are on track together, rather than one class laying down a lot of rubber first, then the other class riding afterwards.

Superbike are on pace with the MotoGP machines! And these are the recently Rev limit nicked Superbikes too eh? Albeit Q rubber, but still surprisingly fast.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

Interesting that Eugene Laverty is on an RS-GP. Why not the RSV4 RF? And where's Aleix Espargaro?
