Jerez Moto2 & Moto3 Test, Friday Times: Oliveira Fastest As Field Tightens

Miguel Oliveira and Aron Canet leave the Jerez joint Moto2 and Moto3 test as the fastest in their respective classes. Among the Moto2 riders, Oliveira knocked nearly eight tenths off his time from Thursday to go a tenth quicker than Pecco Bagnaia, who was fastest yesterday. Alex Marquez - who will be staying on to ride the Honda RC213V MotoGP bike next week - ended Friday as third fastest, ahead of Oliveira's Red Bull KTM teammate Brad Binder. Danny Kent had a very strong day on Friday, setting the fifth fastest time just four tenths off Miguel Oliveira.

The Moto2 rookies made solid progress. Joan Mir was the quickest of the new entrants into the difficult middleweight class, ending Friday in sixteenth spot 1.2 seconds behind Oliveira. Bo Bendsneyder was a tenth slower in twenty-first, despite crashing the Tech 3 Moto2 machine, while Romano Fenati was nearly 1.7 slower than Oliveira, and half a second off the pace of Joan Mir. 

Danny Kent was the rider who made the most improvement over the two days, taking 1.4 seconds off his time from Friday. Bo Bendsneyder and Xavi Vierge also improved by over a second, while Romano Fenati and Miguel Oliveira were eight tenths quicker than the day before.

A small number of Moto3 riders continued to test, and once again it was Aron Canet who stood head and shoulders above the rest. Tony Arbolino finished the day in second, while Sky VR46 Racing rookie Dennis Foggia was third quickest.
