2010 Phillip Island 125cc FP1 Result - Smith Fastest In Rain-Soaked Session

The Southern Ocean has decided to show its fiercer face this weekend at Phillip Island, and the wind and rain it brought meant that practice was delayed for two hours, while circuit staff worked at clearing the sand and dirt that heavy rain and flooding had left on the circuit overnight. The 125cc class got underway a couple of hours late, and still in filthy conditions, causing plenty of riders to slide off and run into the grass, but in the end, it was Bancaja Aspar's Bradley Smith who emerged from the session as the fastest man on track, ahead of Red Bull Ajo's Marc Marquez.

In 3rd place, a surprise and very impressive result for Danny Kent on the Lambretta. Kent was runner up in the Red Bull Rookies Cup this year, and has far outperformed any of the other riders who have ridden the Lambretta. Sandro Cortese on the second Ajo Derbi was 4th fastest in the session. While Marquez was up front, the other two contenders for the 125cc title were further back. Nico Terol ended the session in 5th, while Pol Espargaro was 7th.
