Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test 1pm Thursday Times: Dovizioso Under Pole Record

It is another busy day at Jerez, with World Superbikes and MotoGP on track. Andrea Dovizioso is currently fastest, having dropped under Jorge Lorenzo's 2015 pole record thanks in no small part to the new grippy surface at the track. Dovizioso's Ducati teammate Jorge Lorenzo is currently second quickest, just outside his pole record, while Andrea Iannone is third. Tito Rabat continues to impress, currently fourth quickest ahead of Cal Crutchlow and Pol Espargaro.

Alex Lowes is the fastest of the WorldSBK riders, the Pata Yamaha rider two seconds off the pace of Dovizioso, and ahead of Leon Camier and Michael van der Mark. But the top three from the 2017 championship are absent today: neither Kawasaki rider has a lot of parts to test, and Rea is resting his neck after a big off on Wednesday. Chaz Davies was having a precautionary MRI on the knee he injured yesterday in a big crash at Turn 1. Both Ducati and Kawasaki should be back on track on Friday.
