2010 Estoril Moto2 FP3 Result - West Imperious In The Rain

After the briefest of respites during MotoGP practice at Estoril, the weather returned to torment the Moto2 riders for their third session of free practice. The return of the rain saw Ant West in his element, the Australian wet-weather master topping the timesheets throughout the session and taking top spot on his MZ. West had some stiff competition from JIR's Alex de Angelis, though, the man from San Marino finishing just under two tenths behind the Australian.

Kenan Sofuoglu was once again impressive on the Technomag CIP bike, the World Supersport champion ending in 3rd for the second time in three sessions. In 4th was Tech 3 rider Raffaele de Rosa, clearly much more at ease in the wet than he has been in the dry. Just as in MotoGP, the session was marred by numerous crashes, though so far everyone appears to have escaped relatively unharmed.

The forecast for this afternoon is that the rain will continue, and qualifying looks like being a very damp affair.
