Jerez Moto2 Test Wednesday Times: Gardner Under Pole Record As Official Testing Kicks off

The first official Moto2 test, where the entire field is gathered together, kicked off today at Jerez under excellent conditions, the day bright and sunny. Conditions were so good that lap records were quickly under assault.

Remy Gardner finished the day as fastest, dropping under the qualifying record by over three tenths of a second. The Australian finished a quarter of a second ahead of Enea Bastianini on the Italtrans Kalex, who was in turn two tenths quicker than veteran Tom Luthi, the Swiss rider ending the day in third.

Edgar Pons finished the first day in fourth on the Gresini Kalex, while Aron Canet was the first Speed Up rider, the Spaniard looking strong in his first few outings on a Moto2 machine. Testing continues on Thursday and Friday at the Andalusian track.

Hopefully this becomes a consistent thing for him. FIngers crossed that he does really well this year.

I hope this is the start of a consistent season for Remy & the team.

Fingers crossed hoping that he does really well this year.

The fastest rider on a Speed-Up, sorry not very interested. I hope that rider number 44 doesn't ram any other riders next time he gets angry or frustrated. Wouldn't bet on it. Looks like Makar Yurchenko isn't in Gp racing this year, one less target for 44.
