2014 Phillip Island Moto3 FP2: Miller Takes Charge At Home

Jack Miller left it late to top the second Moto3 free practice session at Phillip Island in Australia, riding in front of his patriotic home crowd Miller struggled for pace in the first half of the session but jumped to the top of the time sheets with his final flying lap; a time of 1:37.033. Miller's former team mate Efren Vazquez posted the second quickest time finishing ahead of his countryman and the ever-improving Juanfran Guevara while Brad Binder took fourth place aboard his Mahindra, the top four finished less than a tenth of a second behind Miller.

The morning's pace-setter Danny Kent had to settle for fifth place ahead of Alex Rins and Isaac Vinales. Niklas Ajo took his Husqvarna to eighth place from Enea Bastianini and Championship Leader Alex Marquez rounded out the top ten. Both John McPhee and Matteo Ferrari had big crashes at the final corner and had to be taken to the medical centre for examinations, thankfully they were later cleared of any serious injury.
