2019 Jerez Moto2 Test Day 3 Times: Binder And Lowes Break Into The 1'40s

Brad Binder has set out the marker for the new and revised Moto2 class, smashing the Moto2 lap record around Jerez by a second, and breaking into the 1'40s. For comparison, that is a tenth of a second slower than Valentino Rossi's 2004 MotoGP pole time at the Spanish circuit, set using a 990cc Yamaha M1 and special Michelin qualifying tires.

Sam Lowes got within seven thousandths of a second of Binder, firmly cementing his status as a favorite for 2019 alongside the South African, while Iker Lecuona continued to impress by ending the test as third fastest. Luca Marini ended the test as fourth fastest on the Sky VR46 Kalex, despite coming off shoulder surgery in November, and a few thousandths faster than Lorenzo Baldassarri. Alex Marquez finished as sixth fastest, ahead of Nicolo Bulega and Jorge Navarro, while Remy Gardner finished as ninth. Rookie Jorge Martin rounded out the top ten, an impressive start for the reigning Moto3 champion.

The teams now pack up and head home, while their bikes and kit are shipped to Qatar. The final test before the season starts takes place at the Losail circuit from 1st to 3rd March, and the season kicks off for real a week later, with the race on the 10th March.

Combined times from all three days, and below that the times from Friday:
