2022 Valencia Moto3 FP3 Result: Yamanaka Leads In Cool Conditions

It was a cool start to Saturday in Valencia, temperature-wise, but that didn’t stop Ryusei Yamanaka from almost nudging the lap record and topping the final practice session for the lightweight class. The MT Helmets rider took control of proceedings in the final handful of minutes of FP3, with rookie Ivan Ortolá climbing into second, only five hundredths of a second behind, after a technically troublesome start to his session. Diogo Moreira was all the more keen to make up for the long lap penalty awaiting him on Sunday and jumped into third, one tenth off top spot.

Dennis Foggia kept a low profile for most of the session, before going up to fourth, ahead of the GASGAS duo of Izan Guevara and Sergio Garcia. Xavi Artigas spent a big part of the session towards the bottom of the top 20 but fresh rubber brought him up to seventh in the closing stages, which was also the case for Friday leader Tatsuki Suzuki, who followed him on the timesheets. John McPhee and David Salvador completed the top 10 covered by half a second, with Dani Holgado, Carlos Tatay, Deniz Öncü and Riccardo Rossi very close behind.

Joel Kelso missed out on the precious top 14 by one hundredth of a second, as did Ayumu Sasaki, although his session was compromised by a late tumble. Jaume Masia and Kaito Toba were also left in Q1 territory by a tangle at turn 11 and childishly squabbled in the gravel to probably add some penalty fuel to the Q1 fire. David Muñoz was the early leader of the session but eventually lost ground all the way down to 20th position, one second off top spot.

2022 Valencia MotoGP FP1 Results: Quartararo Leads Marquez As Bagnaia Struggles

Fabio Quartararo has topped the first session of practice for the MotoGP class at Valencia, just leading Marc Marquez, who was fastest for a large part of FP1. Brad Binder is close in third, the top three covered by less than a tenth.

The entire field is close, which is causing problems further down the field. The top ten is covered by just four tenths of a second, and Pecco Bagnaia, who was just six tenths off the time of Quartararo, ended the session in seventeenth. Bagnaia was clearly not happy with the setup of his Ducati, his team making a big geometry change to the rear of the bike before his final run.

With good weather, expected to stay very stable for the whole of the weekend, nobody bothered putting fresh soft rubber in at the end, most riders using the same rear tire throughout the session, though Jack Miller did two longer runs on two different medium tires.

2022 San Juan Villicum World Superbike Race Two Result: Take Your Lumps

The last World Superbike race of the weekend would be twenty one laps with all but three riders on the SCX tyre. The air temperature was 27ºC and the track was 54ºC.

Jonathan Rea led into turn one, beating Toprak Razgatlioglu and Michael Ruben Rinaldi to the punch, but Rinaldi tried under Rea and Razgatlioglu as three riders went into turn three side by side. Razgatlioglu was forced wide and was pushed to fifth place. Rinaldi on the SC0 tyre pushed past Rea to lead Rea and Alex Lowes at thew start of lap two. Razgatlioglu sat behind fourth-placed Alvaro Bautista. Rea went wide trying to take the lead from Rinaldi at turn fifteen and had to let four riders past as he recovered ahead of Loris Baz. Alex Lowes set the fastest lap in second place and briefly held the lead until Rinaldi powered past down the straight. Xavi Vierge was behind Toprak Razgatlioglu but behind him Rea set a 1'38.353 fastest lap. Loris Baz had an incident with Axel Bassani, with Bassani smacking into Baz after Rea passed him, and crashed out. Bassani would get a long lap penalty for his action.

The leading six riders were covered by less than s second and a half at the start of lap four. Bautista took second from Lowes at the end of the straight and Razgatlioglu passed him in turn ten. Down the straight, on lap five, Bautista gently passed Rinaldi down the straight to take the lead from his teammate. Into turn one, Razgatlioglu teased the brakes to pass Rinaldi for second. Iker Lecuona set the fastest lap, a 1'38.290, behind Jonathan Rea and Xavi Vierge. Lap six and Razgatlioglu closed in on Bautista with a 1'37.923 fastest lap, over a second clear of Rinaldi who was getting duffed up by Lowes with Rea right behind them, leading the Hondas behind. Rea watched Lowes pass Rinaldi and followed his teammate a few corners later. 

As Razgatlioglu hounded Bautista, Lowes and Rea were less than two seconds behind, breaking away from Rinaldi, Vierge and Lecuona. Razgatlioglu set a 1'37.890, two seconds ahead of Lowes.

Nine laps down, Razgatlioglu was still within three tenths of a second of Bautista with Lowes and Rea over two seconds behind, with Lowes ahead of his teammate. Bautista built three tenths down the straight, but Razgatlioglu clawed them back over the remaining nine turns before the start line. Alvaro Bautista set the fastest lap, a 1'37.789, but couldn't shake Razgatlioglu.

At half race distance, Alvaro Bautista was lapping ever so slightly quicker than Razgatlioglu, but the pair were still in tough, over three seconds clear of the Kawasakis of Alex Lowes and Jonathan Rea. Michael Ruben Rinaldi was a further two and a half seconds further back, with Xavi Vierge and Iker Lecuona in his wake, Axel Bassani was close to the Hondas ahead of him, but he still had a penalty to take that he seemed to be avoiding.

Another fastest lap by Bautista, a 1'37.660, finally put some distance between himself and Razgatlioglu, with over a second between the pair on lap thirteen of twenty one. The Kawasakis were over three and a half seconds behind at this point. Bassani, back in eighth place, got a double long lap penalty for not taking his long lap penalty. 

With two thirds of the race in the bag, Bautista led Razgatlioglu by over a second with the Kawasakis of Lowes and Rea over four seconds behind. Rinaldi held fifth place from the Hondas of Vierge and Lecuona, with Bassani behind them before taking his lumps.

Seventeen laps down, Bautista led Razgatlioglu by over two seconds with Lowes and Rea over five seconds further back. Rinaldi, Vierge and Lecuona were five further seconds behind with Bassani still not having taken his penalties. Rea passed Lowes with zero drama down the straight and Lowes settled in behind his teammate.

Rinaldi and the Hondas were well matched, with no changes between the three, lap after lap, five seconds behind Lowes. Bassani finally took one of his penalties and dropped to eleventh place, missing his second long lap.

On the last lap, Alvaro Bautista held a lead of over three seconds as the wind picked up. Bautista's Ducati was the fastest bike down the kilometre long straight, hitting 314km/h at its peak. He rowed his boat home beating Toprak Razgatlioglu by over three seconds. Jonathan Rea was over six seconds behind on the last step of the podium, almost two seconds ahead of his loyal teammate. Michael Ruben Rinaldi was four seconds behind Lowes, with Xavi Vierge and Iker Lecuona in his wake. Andrea Locatelli, Scott Redding and Michael van der Mark rounded out the top ten.

Alvaro Bautista extended his championship lead to an almost unsurmountable eighty two points over Toprak Razgatlioglu with third-placed Jonathan Rea a further sixteen points behind. With four feature races and two sprint races remaining, Bautista may have secured a title for himself and Ducati, but he still has to race the races to claim his title.

2022 San Juan Villicum World Supersport Race Two Result: A Proper Supersport Race All The Way To The Flag

World Supersport's last race of the weekend had Adrian Huertas having to take a long lap penalty. 

Federico Caricasulo led Raffaele Dr Rosa, Lorenzo Baldassarri and Dominique Aegerter into turn one as Oli Bayliss and Hannes Soomer crashed out at the back of the grid. Jules Cluzel, Nicolo Bulega, Niki Tuuli and Stefano Manzi kept on pace with the four riders ahead of them but Luca Bernardi crashed into Bradley Smith on lap two. 

Niki Tuuli set the fastest lap on lap two, a 1'42.877, in sixth place. Yari Montella found the dirty part of the track saving a high side and flipped his bike on the sandy dust. Five riders out of twenty two were out by lap three. 

Niki Tuuli set a 1'42.755 at the back of a leading group of six riders. De Rosa pushed through to the lead, followed by Baldassarri under Caricasulo. Tuuli climbed to fifth place, taking it off Jules Cluzel, before the end of lap four ad passed Aegerter on lap five before the back straight. As Cluzel started to lose touch with the five riders ahead of him, Manzi closed up, bringing Can Oncu and Nicolo Bulega with him. Niki Tuuli set another fastest lap, a 1'42.582, on his MV Agusta, but Baldassarri set a 1'42.361 a lap later in second place. Tuuli overshot turn one and lost three places at the start of lap seven of nineteen and rejoined in seventh place and got a track limits warning a lap later.

At half race distance, Raffaele De Rosa was over a second clear of Lorenzo Baldassarri, Federico Caricasulo and Dominique Aegerter with Stefano Manzi over a second further back, fighting with Niki Tuuli, Jules Cluzel and Can Oncu.

Lap nine and Lorenzo Baldassarri set a 1'42.266 fastest lap from second place and a lap later Dominique Aegerter in fourth place set a 1'42.186, over a second and a half off the lead. 

Raffaele De Rosa crashed out of the lead at turn nine, handing the lead to Lorenzo Baldassarri ahead of Federico Caricasulo and Dominique Aegerter, almost two seconds clear of Niki Tuuli in a lonely fourth place. Twelve laps down and Baldassarri led over the line, with half a second covering Baldassarri, Caricasulo and Aegerter. With De Rosa pulling into the pits after his crash, only one remaining rider was outside the points. 

With five laps to go, Baldassarri led Aegerter and Caricasulo over the line with two tenths of a second covering the leading trio, after Caricasulo bucked his bike enough at turn fourteen for Aegerter to cleanly steal second place. Aegerter then snuck past Baldassarri in to turn one but left enough of a gap for Baldassarri to switch back underneath to take the lead back. Lap sixteen, Caricasulo lunged under Aegerter into turn three, but Aegerter snuck back on the exit of the corner. Caricasulo took second place back at the end of the straight, but went wide into turn nine to let Aegerter past again. Niki Tuuli was under a second and a half off the leaders and a second and a half from fifth-placed Stefano Manzi.

Lap seventeen of nineteen, Baldassarri took turn eight wide but held the lead until Aegerter powered past outside the corner. Aegerter led at the start of the penultimate lap, duelling with Baldassarri with Caricasulo on their tails. Down the straight, Baldassarri retook the lead into turn eight on the brakes and held the lead throughout the remaining nine turns to start the last lap in the lead. 

Aegerter kept in Baldassarri's wheel tracks, but couldn't find a way past until turn fifteen, where he worked the turns before to get past Baldassarri's defensive riding, holding the inside line and forcing Baldassarri to pick his bike up, leave the track and return to the race in third place behind Federico Caricasulo with Caricasulo holding his line to take second place behind Aegerter. Niki Tuuli finished fourth with Stefano Manzi two seconds further back. 

Dominique Aegerter's forceful win put him nine more points ahead of Lorenzo Baldassarri after Raffaele De Rosa threw away what could have been Ducati's first win in seventeen years. Federico Caricasulo took his team's best result of the year and Lorenzo Baldassarri heads to the last two weekends seventy two points behind Dominique Aegerter with a hundred remaining from the four races.

2022 San Juan Villicum World Superbike Superpole Race Result: Lap Record And Finding First

World Superbike's ten lap Superpole race took place at 22ºC with most riders on the SCX that Alvaro Bautista used in the feature race yesterday but Xavi Vierge fitted a SC0 while Redding had a harder SC1. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu took the lead into turn one from pole position with Jonathan Rea and Alvaro Bautista behind him to start the ten lap race. Michael Ruben Rinaldi took fourth place on the first lap ahead if Iker Lecuona and Loris Baz. Rea kept up with Razgatlioglu as the pair built up a lead over Bautista until the long kilometre straight where Bautista caught up. 

Lap two, Razgatlioglu set a 1'37.303 but couldn't escape Rea and Bautista. Rea kept with Razgatlioglu and snuck under him at the turn six hairpin to lead down the straight, holding the lead over Razgatlioglu and Bautista. Rinaldi in fourth place was almost a second off the leading trio with Iker Lecuona, Alex Lowes and Loris Baz within striking distance. 

Four laps down, Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap, a new 1'37.291 lap record, with Razgatlioglu on his tail, escaping from Bautista. At half race distance, Rea led Razgatlioglu until he went wide into turn one, letting Razgatlioglu and Bautista easily past. Rea recovered almost two seconds off second-placed Bautista, giving Rinaldi, Lecuona and Lowes a sniff of hope of a podium.

Bautista hounded Razgatlioglu as Rea closed the gap to his rivals by a couple of tenths but it remained around the two second mark. Down the straight on lap eight, Bautista slipstreamed into the lead, but he left a gap before turn nine for Razgatlioglu to take the lead back. Behind them, Rea closed up a third of a second quicker than the leaders. Lap nine, Bautista took the lead again into turn eight and Rea behind them set a new lap record of 1'37.277 to start the last lap half a second off the fighting leaders. 

Razgatlioglu started the last lap taking the lead on the brakes into turn one and Bautista took it back at the end of the straight. With the straight being in the middle of the lap instead of at the end, Razgatlioglu had a few more opportunities to pass for the win, but he did it on turn nine, the scene of his lap one crash yesterday, pushing Bautista wide and holding the lead throughout the remaining eight turns. Bautista wasn't able to launch an attack on Razgatlioglu because he had to fend off a hungry Jonathan Rea who had very much caught the leaders and was looking for second place. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu took a clean win ahead of Alvaro Bautista who fought off Jonathan Rea's attempts, leading over the line by under a quarter of a second. Jonathan Rea was close to ending his victory drought, but catching neutral on the way to first gear lost him two seconds over the bikes behind him cost him the win as his pace was higher than his rivals.

Michael Ruben Rinaldi held off Alex Lowes and Iker Lecuona to take fourth place with Axel Bassani a further three seconds further back.

Toprak Razgatlioglu cut three points off Alvaro Bautista's championship lead to seventy seven points with Jonathan Rea a further twelve points further back. 

The three championship contenders will line up on the front row for race two, with Razgatlioglu leading Bautista and Rea, and Rinaldi heads the second row alongside Lowes and Lecuona. Axel Bassani, Xavi Vierge and Loris Baz made up the third row and took the last points in the race.
