Moto3 standings after Assen:
Results and summary of the Moto3 race at Assen:
Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto3 class at Assen:
A brand new day brought brand new track conditions to Assen, with beautifully dry asphalt welcoming the lightweight class for their final practice outing. With a lot of work to pack into the 40-minute session, riders were quickly battling for their place in qualifying and it was no surprise to see Izan Guevara at the top of the pile straight away.
As the MotoGP calendar expands, the logistical challenges of running an increasing number of back-to-back rounds are starting to have an impact. The triple header starting at Aragon, then proceeding to Motegi, then finishing at Buriram in Thailand was always going to be the hardest one, because of the distances to be traveled, and finally, Dorna and IRTA have had to admit defeat. Practice for the Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi has been rescheduled, with just a single session on Friday, starting at 1:15pm, and no track action in the morning.
The new schedule will see Moto3 start at 1:15pm local time, with the normal 40 minute FP1 session. The 40-minute Moto2 FP1 follows at 2:10pm, and at 3:05pm, MotoGP will have 75 minutes on track for FP1. Normal service will be resumed on Saturday. Progress to Q2 will be determined by the combined times set during FP1 on Friday and FP2 on Saturday.
