2014 Motegi Moto3 FP2 Result: Kent Edges Rins To Lead First Day

Danny Kent has topped both sessions of free practice for the Moto3 class at Motegi, leading the way on the Husqvarna in both the morning and afternoon sessions. Kent held off a late challenge from Alex Rins, the Honda rider having been quick throughout the session. Miguel Oliveira took 3rd spot on the factory Mahindra, making it three different manufacturers in the top three, with Brad Binder confirming the strong form of the Indian manufacturer in 4th.

Title contenders Alex Marquez and Jack Miller had a much tougher day of it. Marquez ended the day in 7th, half a second behind Kent and Marquez' Estrella Galicia teammate Alex Rins, while Jack Miller struggled to 13th, nearly three quarters of a second off the pace of Kent. It was not for want of trying, Miller running off the track on corner exit several times through the session.
