The final day of testing at Jerez for the junior classes in MotoGP showed the same pattern as the past two days, and the same names at the top of the timesheets. Once again, Alvaro Bautista and Julian Simon set the fastest times, the two Aspar riders lapping under the existing lap records in their respective classes.
Julian Simon did not have it all his own way in the 125 class though. At 2pm, Simon's Aspar team mate Bradley Smith was firmly ensconced at the top of the timesheets, and only relinquished his top spot later in the afternoon. Smith finished the day second, ahead of Sandro Cortese and Marc Marquez. Britain's Scott Redding finished 8th, dropping down the field from the earlier two days. The USA's Cameron Beaubier, on the other hand, managed to climb a place to 11th. More impressively, the American rookie took a second off his lap time every single day.
In the 250 class, Bautista ruled once again unopposed, ahead of Mike di Meglio. The reigning 125cc champion was very impressive over the three day test, cutting two and a half seconds off his time over the course of three days. Di Meglio finished ahead of Team Scot's veteran 250 rider Hiro Aoyama aboard a Honda, and fellow 250cc rookie Gabor Talmacsi.
