2016 Le Mans Moto2 FP3 Result: Luthi Edges Zarco

Tom Luthi has topped the final session of free practice for the Moto2 class. The Swiss rider took over at the top early, then held on to his advantage all the way to the end of the session. Johann Zarco got close to Luthi, but the Frenchman could never quite find the final three hundredths of a second to beat the Interwetten man, having to settle for second spot.

Jonas Folger took third, a tenth of a second off the pace of Luthi, while Sam Lowes made positive progress at last, moving up to take fourth behind Folger, though still nearly a third of a second slower than Luthi. Alex Rins, currently second in the championship standings, struggled badly, ending the session way down in eleventh.
