2022 Buriram Moto2 FP3 Result: Ogura One Step Ahead

The intermediate class benefitted from another pleasantly surprising dry start on Saturday morning and Ai Ogura took advantage to dominate proceedings. The Japanese rider quickly took charge on the timesheets with a reasonable margin, that was eventually halved by Pedro Acosta to three tenths of a second – the rookie quickly getting over a rodeo moment at turn four to then go on and reel in the leader. Despite a few late crashes and subsequent yellow flags, there were plenty of late improvements as well, including Tony Arbolino on his way up to third, demoting home favourite Somkiat Chantra to fourth, half a second off top spot.

Alonso Lopez joined the top five, ahead of Cameron Beaubier, Filip Salac and Jeremy Alcoba, while Friday’s leader, Jake Dixon, dropped to ninth. Championship leader Augusto Fernandez rounded out the top 10 positions, leading the Spanish quintet securing the remaining tickets to Q2, including Aron Canet, Albert Arenas, Jorge Navarro and Manuel Gonzalez. Lorenzo Dalla Porta missed out by only two hundredths of a second and will be joined in Q1 by the likes of Celestino Vietti, who only briefly looked like a threat to the top 14, Joe Roberts and the returning Sam Lowes.
