2015 Assen Moto2 FP1 Result: Lowes Holds Off The Swiss Army

Sam Lowes has ended the first session of free practice for the Moto2 class at the top of the time sheets, the Speed Up rider putting in a late charge to set the fastest lap. Lowes took over the top slot from Dominique Aegerter, who had in turn nudged his compatriot Tom Luthi off the top of the timesheets. Aegerter ended in 2nd, six hundredths behind Lowes, while Luthi was another tenth of a second behind Aegerter.

Tito Rabat ended the session in 4th, nearly half a second off the pace of Lowes, and ahead of Julian Simon and Johann Zarco. Championship leader Zarco was fastest early in the session, but had to give ground towards the end. Alex Marquez had a strong session of practice too, the Moto3 champion having found some speed at Barcelona and then again at the Aragon test.
