MotoGP Race And Practice Results

Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test 1pm Wednesday Times: Iannone Leads Sykes

old_url: 

The Jerez circuit is packed, with 27 riders from 3 different series all cutting laps. Andrea Iannone is fastest overall on the Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP bike, already under Jorge Lorenzo race lap record. Tom Sykes has also matched that feat on the Kawasaki WorldSBK machine, a sign that the resurfaced track is a good deal quicker.

Cal Crutchlow has a busy work schedule, with three different bikes in the LCR Honda garage: one 2017 standard bike, and two variations of the 2018 prototype debuted at Valencia. Crutchlow is third quickest, ahead of the Ducatis MotoGP team of Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso.

Jonathan Rea is sixth quickest overall, and second fastest WorldSBK rider. Rea took a tumble shortly after noon, falling at the very fast Turn 12, though he escaped without obvious injury. Pol Espargaro was another faller, crashing at Turn 3 and briefly causing a red flag, though the KTM MotoGP man was perfectly fine.

Testing will continue until 6pm this evening.

Valencia Moto2 & Moto3 Test Times, Tuesday: Bagnaia And Bastianini Lead Italian Charge

old_url: 

Testing for the Moto2 and Moto3 classes has wrapped up for the winter, as the riders completed the second and final day of testing at Valencia. It was the turn of the Italians to shine, with Pecco Bagnaia topping the timesheets in the Moto2 class, while Enea Bastianini took the honors in Moto3. Bagnaia was fractionally faster than Miguel Oliveira on the KTM, while Monday's fastest man Alex Marquez ended the test in third.

Hector Barbera was the strongest of the MotoGP returnees in fourth place, four tenths slower than Bagnaia, and a couple of tenths quicker than former Aprilia MotoGP rider Sam Lowes. Joan Mir continued to lead the rookies with the twelfth fastest time, three quarters of a second slower than Bagnaia, while Bo Bendsneyder once again just edged ahead of Romano Fenati, both men taking off a big chunk of the deficit they had to the leaders from the first day.

In the Moto3 class, Enea Bastianini continued his fast adaptation to the Leopard Racing Team, ending the day a tenth quicker than Aron Canet. Bastianini was not quite as quick as Jorge Martin was on Monday, but he had the measure of him on Tuesday. Alonso Lopez ended the day in third, just behind his Estrella Galicia teammate, and a thousandth of a second faster than Martin, who ended Tuesday in fourth spot.

Jerez WorldSBK Test Tuesday Times: Sykes Fastest While Rea Collects Award

old_url: 

Tom Sykes ended the second day of the Jerez combined WorldSBK test as fastest, taking advantage of the absence of his Kawasaki Racing Team teammate, though he came up just four hundredths short of Rea's time. Rea was absent due to an appointment to collect the MBE he was awarded at Buckingham Palace.

Loris Baz made a massive leap forward on the Althea BMW, improving his time by nearly a second, taking second ahead of Eugene Laverty on the Milwaukee Aprilia, who was also six tenths quicker than he had been the day before.

Wednesday promises to be a lot busier at Jerez. Not only does Rea return for one more day, but the Honda, Ducati, and Yamaha WorldSBK teams hit the track, along with a host of MotoGP teams.

Jerez WorldSBK Test: Rea And Sykes Rule On First Day Of Testing Under New Regulations

old_url: 

The WorldSBK and BSB riders kicked off the first day of a week-long test at Jerez. With the WorldSBK riders now working under the new rules, the teams are coming to grips with the rev limits put in place.

It didn't slow the KRT Kawasakis up much, however. Jonathan Rea was fastest, as he has been all year, posting a time just under seven tenths slower than his Superpole time back in October. Tom Sykes was second quickest, just over a third of a second behind his teammate, but over a second faster than Eugene Laverty on the Milwaukee Aprilia.

Leon Haslam, still suffering with a broken ankle sustained in the final round of BSB, posted the fourth quickest time on a BSB-spec Kawasaki ZX-10R, leading the BSB teams present at the test. Testing continues tomorrow, and for the rest of the week.

Valencia Moto2 & Moto3 Test Times, Monday: Marquez And Martin Quickest

old_url: 

After testing last week at Jerez, some of the Moto2 and Moto3 have migrated north again, back to Valencia. At the end of Monday, Alex Marquez was the fastest of the Moto2 riders, a couple of tenths quicker than Pecco Bagnaia and Luca Marini. Joan Mir showed good improvement as a rookie, moving up to eighth quickest overall, eight tenths slower than Marquez.

The Moto3 class saw more action than at Jerez, though just as last week, it was Hondas which ruled the roost. Jorge Martin dominated, ending the day three tenths ahead of Aron Canet, with Enea Bastianini third fastest after his switch to the Leopard Racing Team.

Jerez Moto2 & Moto3 Test, Friday Times: Oliveira Fastest As Field Tightens

old_url: 

Miguel Oliveira and Aron Canet leave the Jerez joint Moto2 and Moto3 test as the fastest in their respective classes. Among the Moto2 riders, Oliveira knocked nearly eight tenths off his time from Thursday to go a tenth quicker than Pecco Bagnaia, who was fastest yesterday. Alex Marquez - who will be staying on to ride the Honda RC213V MotoGP bike next week - ended Friday as third fastest, ahead of Oliveira's Red Bull KTM teammate Brad Binder. Danny Kent had a very strong day on Friday, setting the fifth fastest time just four tenths off Miguel Oliveira.

The Moto2 rookies made solid progress. Joan Mir was the quickest of the new entrants into the difficult middleweight class, ending Friday in sixteenth spot 1.2 seconds behind Oliveira. Bo Bendsneyder was a tenth slower in twenty-first, despite crashing the Tech 3 Moto2 machine, while Romano Fenati was nearly 1.7 slower than Oliveira, and half a second off the pace of Joan Mir. 

Danny Kent was the rider who made the most improvement over the two days, taking 1.4 seconds off his time from Friday. Bo Bendsneyder and Xavi Vierge also improved by over a second, while Romano Fenati and Miguel Oliveira were eight tenths quicker than the day before.

A small number of Moto3 riders continued to test, and once again it was Aron Canet who stood head and shoulders above the rest. Tony Arbolino finished the day in second, while Sky VR46 Racing rookie Dennis Foggia was third quickest.
