2013 Phillip Island Moto3 FP3 Result: Vinales Continues Relentless Pace

Maverick Vinales has continued to make fantastic use of the resurfaced Phillip Island circuit by heading the field in the third Moto3 free practice session by almost half a second. In less blustery but still beautifully sunny conditions, his sensational lap of 1:36.650 was one and a half seconds quicker than his fastest time from yesterday. Jonas Folger headed the time sheets for the first half of proceedings but had to settle for second place.

A surprisingly impressive John McPhee finished up in a fantastic third place ahead of Miguel Oliveira aboard his Mahindra. Championship leader Luis Salom rounded out the top five and would be disappointed to be almost a full second behind the red-hot pace of Vinales. Isaac Vinales ended up in sixth place ahead of local favourite Jack Miller, Alex Marquez, his team mate Alex Rins and FTR Honda rider Alexis Masbou completed the top ten.

looks like Honda have decided to turn up the engines and give FTR the power the chassis deserves. 2014 Moto3 might be very different than the two preceding seasons.

what's this Bullet bike Lachlan Kavney is using ?
