2017 Jerez Moto2 & Moto3 Private Test: Nakagami, Bulega Fastest After One Day of Dry Track

old_url: 

The Moto2 and Moto3 teams were back to work over the past two days, a large contingent gathered to prepare for the 2017 season. Fine weather greeted the riders on the first day of the test, but the second day, Thursday, started with the track covered with sand after strong winds blew sand across from North Africa, then rain hit the track and washed out the rest of the test. A few riders went out on Thursday, but they were nearly 20 seconds off the pace.

Takaaki Nakagami was the fastest rider on Wednesday, ending the test with a lap of 1'42.210. The Forward Racing duo of Lorenzo Baldassarri and Luca Marini were second and third respectively, not far off the time of Nakagami. Franco Morbidelli was fourth fastest, ahead of Danny Kent on the Suter, the former Moto3 champion having switched from Kalex for the 2017 season.

in the Moto3 class, it was Nicolo Bulega who led the way, the Sky VR46 rider putting his KTM just ahead of Philipp Oettl's. Jorge Martin was the fastest Honda rider in third, the Gresini Honda rider just a fraction faster than Romano Fenati, also on a Honda. John McPhee is also back on a Honda, after riding a Mahindra in 2016, and the Scotsman was nearly two thirds of a second off the time of Bulega.

The Moto2 and Moto3 teams take a break for the next two days, as the Repsol Honda team take to the track to run through the final test of their RC213V engine. They will be joined on track by Alex Marquez, who stays on for one more day after crashing during testing. From 27th February to 1st March, another group of Moto2 and Moto3 riders take to the track, before the first official test for the two support classes from 8-10 March.

2017 Phillip Island WSBK Test, Day 2: Rea, Jacobsen Fastest

old_url: 

Jonathan Rea has topped the final World Superbike test of the 2017 preseason, a few days before the season kicks off in earnest at Phillip Island. The reigning champion was fastest in the morning session, though he had to cede top spot to Marco Melandri in the afternoon. But the Kawasaki man had gone fast enough in the morning to just edge the Ducati of Melandri, and end the test as fastest overall.

Chaz Davies was third fastest, three tenths off the time of his Ducati teammate Melandri, but still ahead of the Kawasaki if Tom Sykes. Xavi Fores made it three Ducatis in the top five, while Leon Camier put the MV Agusta into 6th place, in what is a promising start to the 2017 season.

The MV Agusta topped the timesheets in the World Supersport class, PJ Jacobsen taking a big lead over Roby Rolfo. The American led the Italian - also aboard an MV Agusta 675 - in the morning, but Rolfo was unable to improve his time, suffering a crash towards the end of the morning session, colliding with Gino Rea. Jules Cluzel put the Honda into third spot, just ahead of the two Yamahas of Lucas Mahias and Federico Caricasulo. Kenan Sofuoglu rode, but was forced to withdraw from the two opening rounds of World Supersport after a hand injury proved to be causing him too much pain.

2017 Phillip Island WSBK Test: Fores, Cluzel Top Weather-Affected Day

old_url: 

After three glorious days for MotoGP testing, the weather at Phillip Island has taken a turn for the worse. The first day of the final two-day test for the WorldSBK series ahead of this weekend's opener was hampered by strong winds and intermittent showers, wreaking havoc on the teams' testing programs.

The World Supersport series had the best of the weather, the first hour of the morning taking place on a track that was pretty well dry, but the rain hit shortly after that. Showers continued through the first session for the World Superbike class, but relented in the afternoon, giving the WorldSBK men a little dry track time.

Xavi Forés ended the day on top of the timesheets in the World Superbike class, putting in a couple of quick laps at the very end of the day. The Barni Ducati rider bumped reigning WorldSBK champion Jonathan Rea off top spot, the Kawasaki rider holding on to second ahead of Marco Melandri on the factory Ducati. Michael van der Mark, who led the timesheets early on in the session, finished fourth on the Yamaha, just ahead of Leon Camier on the MV Agusta.

In the World Supersport class, it was Jules Cluzel who was quickest, the CIA Landlord Insurance Honda rider taking over from Robbie Rolfo on the MV Agusta. Kyle Smith was the third fastest man, finishing ahead of Hikari Okubo. All times were set in the morning, as the WorldSSP class' afternoon session remained wet.

Kenan Sofuoglu made his first return to the track after breaking bones in his hand. The reigning World Supersport champion went out on track in the morning, but did not ride in the afternoon, not willing to risk falling and reinjuring his hand in the tricky conditions on track.

2017 Phillip Island MotoGP Test Friday Times: Viñales Ends Australia As Fastest

Maverick Viñales has ended the third preseason MotoGP test of 2017 at the top of the timesheets. The Movistar Yamaha rider started the day with a succession of quick laps which would not be beaten, before getting down to the long grind of development work, turning a total of 101 laps.

Marc Marquez leaves Phillip Island as second fastest, the Repsol Honda rider the only other man to get into the 1'28s. Marquez' program was almost as punishing as Viñales, turning 96 laps in addition to the 107 he ran on Thursday. He is joined by his teammate Dani Pedrosa at the top of the timesheets, the Spanish veteran recovered slightly from his throat infection and strong enough to post the third best time.

Jonas Folger rounded out a very strong test in Australia with the fourth fastest time, and ended as second Yamaha. The Monster Tech 3 Yamaha rider was just a few thousandths slower than Pedrosa, and just a few hundreds quicker than Cal Crutchlow, the LCR Honda rider finishing in fifth.

Alex Rins ended a good test at Phillip Island in sixth place, half a second behind Viñales. The Suzuki rider made astonishing progress over the course of three days, improving his time by over 2.3 seconds from Wednesday to Friday. He was not the most improved rider: that honor fell to Bradley Smith on the KTM, who improved his best lap by 2.7 seconds between Wednesday and Friday. A full list of improvement over the three days appears under Friday's results.

Andrea Dovizioso was the fastest Ducati, the Italian ending the day seven tenths off the pace of Viñales. And much to the relief of Ducati, Jorge Lorenzo made a big improvement to move up to eighth spot, under a tenth off the pace of his teammate. Jack Miller was ninth quickest on the Marc VDS Honda, while Aleix Espargaro rounded out the top ten on the Aprilia. Valentino Rossi ended the test just outside the top ten, over nine tenths slower than his teammate.
