2019 Qatar Moto2 Test Day 3 Final Times: Schrotter Fastest In Final Session, Lowes Fastest On Final Day

Marcel Schrotter finished the final session of testing for the Moto2 class at Qatar as fastest, but it was Sam Lowes who ended the day fastest overall. Schrotter took a tenth off his best time from the previous session, but it was not enough to improve his overall standings on the day.

The top four in the final session - Schrotter, Xavi Vierge, Jorge Navarro, and Alex Marquez - all impoved their times, most of them moving up the overall order, but they could not get into the top four.

So it was Sam Lowes who ended the day as quickest, ahead of Tom Luthi, Remy Gardner, Augusto Fernandez, and Schrotter. Vierge made it six Kalexes in the top six, with Jorge Navarro the first non-Kalex in seventh aboard the Speed Up. Brad Binder was the fastest of the KTMs, ending in tenth, behind Alex Marquez and Luca Marini.

The teams and riders now head back to their hotels for a couple of days of rest before the 2019 season starts in earnest next weekend. The riders hit the track for practice on Friday, before the first Moto2 race of 2019 on Sunday, 10th March.
