2013 Jerez Moto2 Test Day 3 Times: Espargaro Back In Charge

After a day lost to dismal conditions, testing resumed in full force at Jerez under blue skies. The dry condiitions and warm temperatures saw Pol Espargaro return to the top of the timesheets, the Spaniard posting his fastest time in the afternoon Moto2 session, and persuading the Spaniard to skip the final combined session of the day altogether. Second fastest man was Takaaki Nakagami, the Italtrans rider continuing his showing of strong form, ending fractionally ahead of his teammate Julian Simon.

Marc VDS Racing rider Scott Redding took 4th slot, three quarters of a second off the time of Espargaro, and fractionally ahead of Mapfre Aspar man Nico Terol. Terol was the fastest of the non-Kalex mounted riders, just holding off Tito Rabat for the 5th fastest time, while Terol's teammate Jordi Torres grabbed 7th. Xavier Simeon continues his strong performance at Jerez, in both wet and dry, setting the 8th best time on the Desguaces La Torre Kalex.

Testing concludes tomorrow, with two one-hour sessions for the Moto2 and Moto3 classes, before they make way for the MotoGP class, due to start on Saturday.

Good to see a lot more Speed up chassis, it can only be good for development and Westy is heading up the times (YAY). Can't wait for the racing to start roll on April
