2022 Austin Moto3 FP2 Result: Foggia On The Run

The lightweight class got to end the show on Friday and equally unusual was the leader’s gap in the final time attack. Riders needed quite a bit of time to challenge the FP1 benchmark but Dennis Foggia eventually did and went on to stretch an advantage of nearly one second at the front. Although initially slow to improve, Andrea Migno saved the field from a pretty embarrassing gap by reducing it to under four tenths at the last second and posting the only other 2:15 time of the day. Rookie Daniel Holgado also made a late jump to join the top three, seven tenths off the leader and another tenth ahead of compatriot and early session leader Jaume Masia.

After a tricky FP1 with limited running due to some technical issues, Deniz Öncü was back in the groove and joined the top five in the closing stages of FP2. Kaito Toba also made some solid progress over the morning session, although his sixth place was the final one within a second of the leader. Carlos Tatay started the afternoon with a pretty fast tumble at turn 18 but after a speedy change of leathers, he was able to rejoin the action and secure seventh position. Tatsuki Suzuki also joined the crash list but only briefly, at turn one, and then took eighth place, while Izan Guevara and Ayumu Sasaki closed the top 10. Sergio Garcia, Riccardo Rossi, Matteo Bertelle and Alberto Surra provisionally secured top 14 placements, although the Snipers rider ended his session pretty early on, with a big off at turn 11 and needing assistance to get away. The likes of Stefano Nepa, Diogo Moreira or Xavier Artigas will be waiting for Saturday morning to recover some more ground on the timesheets.
