2016 Argentina Moto2 FP1 Result: Zarco Sets The Pace

Johann Zarco climbed to the top of the time sheet with a 1'45.037 at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in Argentina Friday as track conditions continued to thwart fast times. Zarco, who finished the 45-minute session three-tenths of a second in front of Danny Kent, strugged along with other riders to find sufficient grip on the dirty track.  

Indeed, if Zarco had run a 1'45 .037 in 2015, it would have left him in 14th place, just behind Takaaki Nakagami. As it turned out this year, it was good for half a second in front of the Japanese rider who climbed into third late in the morning session. Sam Lowes (4th) and Jonas Folger (5th) completed the top five.
