2014 Silverstone Moto3 FP2: Kent On Top At Home

Local rider Danny Kent has topped a tightly contested second free practice for the Moto3 class at Silverstone in a session that once again saw lashings of sunshine sprinkled with the odd light rain shower. Kent managed to snatch top spot with his final lap, setting a time of 2:15.572 which put him less than a tenth clear of Niccolo Antonelli. Alex Rins posted the third fastest time ahead of KTM riders Isaac Vinales and Romano Fenati.

Alex Marquez lead the session briefly but had to settle for the sixth quickest lap while Mahindra's Miguel Oliveira and Brad Binder followed very closely behind. John McPhee claimed ninth position, the Scot managed to edge out fellow Racing Team Germany rider Efren Vazquez. After leading the morning session Championship leader Jack Miller looked unsettled throughout and spent a lot of time in the pits with his crew, he could only manage 23rd place.
