2011 Catalunya Moto2 FP1 Result: Luthi Edges Local Boy Espargaro

Thomas Luthi led the way in the first session of practice for the Moto2 class at Barcelona, topping the timesheets for much of the session. Luthi finished an eighth of a second ahead of Aleix Espargaro on the Pons Kalex, which pleased the crowd, Espargaro being a native of Granollers, just 5 kilometers from the Montmelo circuit. Mapfre Aspar's Julian Simon ended the session in 3rd, just edging Viessmann Kiefer's Stefan Bradl, Marc VDS' Scott Redding and Ioda Racing's Simone Corsi, while Aleix' younger brother Pol Espargaro set the 7th fastest time of the session.
