Qatar Moto3 Test Day 3 Results: Masia Leads Acosta As KTM Finish Top

The Red Bull KTM Ajo team leads the way at the end of the three-day test for the Moto3 class at Qatar. It was Jaume Masia who was the fastest rider in the test, the Spaniard finishing three tenths of a second ahead of his rookie teamate Pedro Acosta. With rookies finishing second and fourth - Izan Guevara of the Gaviota Aspar GasGas team was under half a second off Masia - the new entrants into the Moto3 class are looking very strong.

Dennis Foggia finished ahead of Izan Guevara, and first Honda, the Leopard Honda rider four tenths behind Masia, while Gabriel Rodrigo set the fifth fastest time. John McPhee and Jeremy Alcoba made it another couple of Hondas in sixth and seventh, while Romano Fenati was the first Husqvarna home, the Swedish brand a rebadged KTM, like the GasGas. Filip Salac was ninth quickest, while Darryn Binder rounded out the top ten.

Everyone except Andrea Migno was fastest on the final day of testing, though Migno's time of 2'05.692 on Saturday would steill have left him in eighteenth place.

Testing is now complete, and the riders and teams now retire to their hotels to await the first real session of the season on Friday.
