2009 Jerez 125 And 250 Test - Day 2 - Bautista And Simon On Top Again

Alvaro Bautista and Julian Simon dominated once again on the second day of testing for the 125cc and 250cc riders at Jerez. The Spanish Aspar duo lead their respective classes as they had done yesterday.

In the 250s, it was KTM refugee Hiroshi Aoyama who was second fastest, getting the Team Scot Honda within half a second of Bautista. Behind Aoyama, the two newcomers, and former and reigning 125cc world champions Gabor Talmacsi and Mike di Meglio were third and fourth respectively, while yesterday's fast man Thomas Luthi dropped to 5th.

In the 125 class, Julian Simon turned up the pressure a few notches, getting to within half a second of the existing lap record, and beating his team mate Bradley Smith by almost a full second. Sandro Cortese and Marc Marquez swapped places, taking third and fourth, while behind them, Sergio Gadea and Scott Redding did the same. American Cameron Beaubier set the 12th fastest time, the slowest of the GP regulars, and in the middle of the Spanish and Italian national championship riders.

Testing concludes tomorrow.
