While the MotoGP riders have packed up and gone home (for some, in preparation for their private tests at Jerez or Sepang), the Moto2 and Moto3 riders have been down in Jerez getting their first taste of 2017. In good conditions, Taka Nakagami topped both days of testing, ending just ahead of Alex Marquez on Thursday. Marquez was a tenth quicker than Lorenzo Baldassarri, while Danny Kent was fourth quickest after his switch to Suter. Axel Pons ended the day in 5th, with new Moto2 arrivals RW Racing.
