Qatar Moto3 Test Sunday Times: Ogura And Salac Tie For Top Time, Salac Fastest Overall

Preseason testing has come to an end for the Moto3 class, with Honda holding the strongest cards ahead of the first race of the season to be held next Sunday. Honda Team Asia's Ai Ogura topped the final day of testing, the Japanese rider posting an identical time to Filip Salac of the Rivacold Snipers Team. Salac ended the test faster overal, however, by virtue of his fast time from yesterday.

Salac' teammate Tony Arbolino finished third, ahead of Tatsuki Szuki on the SIC58 Honda. John McPhee finished fifth overall on Friday on the Petronas Sprinta Honda, but only eighth overall from all three days. Albert Arenas was the fastest of the KTMs, the Aspar Team rider a quarter of a second slower than Ogura on Sunday, but nearly eight tenths slower over all three days than Filip Salac.

Testing is now complete, and the Moto3 riders get a few days off in Qatar before returning on Thursday to prepare for the race, with track action commencing once again on Friday.
