Terol tops Valencia Moto2 test

Spaniard Nico Terol took top spot at day one of testing his Mapfre Aspar Moto2 machine on a combined time of 1.35.926 seconds. The previous 125cc champion who was seen to struggle at the beginning of his first season seemed to stamp his authority over compatriots Julian Simon and Pol Espargaro.

However, Simon was only a further 0.025 seconds behind with Espargaro merely 0.180 behind Simon making the top three extremely close. Brit Scott Redding, who is likely to benefit from the new bike/rider weight limit, took fourth position 0.411 seconds behind on his MarcVDS Kalex.

2010 Moto2 champion Toni Elias was welcomed back into the fold on his Blusens Avintia with a solid 10th whilst teammate Kyle Smith found himself in 27thPrevious MotoGP rider Mattia Pasini also found himself back in the class 1.753 seconds off first place man Terol.

Current Moto3 champion Sandro Cortese was 24th 2.796 with ex teammate Brit Danny Kent a further four positions behind with a gap of 3.258 seconds to the leader. QMMF rider Rafid Topan Sucipto rounded up the pack finishing 5.505seconds behind.
