2016 Jerez IRTA Test Moto3 Thursday Times: Fenati Leads Italian Charge

Romano Fenati has topped the timesheets on the second day of the official IRTA test for the Moto3 class at Jerez. The Team Sky VR46 rider put in a strong charge in the last session of the day, leading an Italian onslaught on Thursday. Only Jorge Navarro could mix it with the Italians, the Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider finishing just six hundredths shy of Fenati, though Navarro had also led the first session of the day in the early morning.

Niccolo Antonelli set the third fastest time, a tenth behind Fenati and five hundredths ahead of Nicolo Bulega, the Italian rookie and reigning FIM CEV Moto3 champion. Bulega confirmed his form on Thursday, after leading the timesheets on Wednesday at Jerez. Brad Binder was the first of the Red Bull KTMs at Jerez, edging out another Italian, Enea Bastianini, and the Belgian rider Livio Loi. Even Loi's seventh place had an Italian tinge, the Belgian being of Italian extraction.
