2020 Barcelona Moto2 FP3 Result: Lowes In The Limelight

The final practice session for the intermediate class turned into the Turn 2 Show, as cameras spent more time showing dusty dented machines in the gravel trap than riders setting fast times. In traditional Moto2 fashion, Friday’s benchmark didn’t last long, especially when confronted to a returning Jorge Martin, but ultimately, top spot went back to Sam Lowes by two tenths of a second. Marcos Ramirez found some speed late on to make a surprise jump into second position, with championship leader Luca Marini comfortably in third.

Fabio Di Giannantonio and Martin rounded out the top five, three tenths off top spot, with Marcel Schrotter two hundredth of a second slower. Marco Bezzecchi had a taste of turn 2 gravel halfway through the session but recovered to climb into seventh place, ahead of Remy Gardner and Xavi Vierge. Augusto Fernandez completed the top ten, while Enea Bastianini ended his session at turn 2, just as he joined the Q2 line-up from 11th position. The final Q2 places went to Edgar Pons, Tom Luthi and Tetsuta Nagashima, although the last two men also had their own off track excursions late in the session.
