2013 Assen Moto3 FP2 Result: Salom Heads Rain Hit Session

Thursday afternoon action resumed as championship leader Luis Salom headed the timesheets in Moto3 FP2. Light sprinkles of rain appeared early in the session and cool track temperatures meant that initial lap times were quite a bit slower than those set in FP1. As the drizzle cleared Salom was able to put together a string of hot laps and finish proceedings ahead of the morning's pace setter Maverick Vinales, as most riders began improving on their day's best times.  

Riding with an injured wrist Jonas Folger did very well to post the third fastest time ahead of Spaniards Rins and Marquez. Alexis Masbou, Isaac Vinales, Alan Techer and the Australian duo of Arthur Sissis and Jack Miller rounded out the top ten placings. With five minutes remaining the rain began to fall heavier than it had all day and saw the few riders circulating head back to the pit lane. Alex Marquez was the only rider to go out and 'test the waters' on full wet tyres, cleverly taking the opportunity to boost his experience riding in tricky conditions.
