Valencia Moto2 & Moto3 Test Times, Tuesday: Bagnaia And Bastianini Lead Italian Charge

Testing for the Moto2 and Moto3 classes has wrapped up for the winter, as the riders completed the second and final day of testing at Valencia. It was the turn of the Italians to shine, with Pecco Bagnaia topping the timesheets in the Moto2 class, while Enea Bastianini took the honors in Moto3. Bagnaia was fractionally faster than Miguel Oliveira on the KTM, while Monday's fastest man Alex Marquez ended the test in third.

Hector Barbera was the strongest of the MotoGP returnees in fourth place, four tenths slower than Bagnaia, and a couple of tenths quicker than former Aprilia MotoGP rider Sam Lowes. Joan Mir continued to lead the rookies with the twelfth fastest time, three quarters of a second slower than Bagnaia, while Bo Bendsneyder once again just edged ahead of Romano Fenati, both men taking off a big chunk of the deficit they had to the leaders from the first day.

In the Moto3 class, Enea Bastianini continued his fast adaptation to the Leopard Racing Team, ending the day a tenth quicker than Aron Canet. Bastianini was not quite as quick as Jorge Martin was on Monday, but he had the measure of him on Tuesday. Alonso Lopez ended the day in third, just behind his Estrella Galicia teammate, and a thousandth of a second faster than Martin, who ended Tuesday in fourth spot.
