The weather smiled a little less kindly on the second day of testing at Jerez, the day starting late and under overcast skies, with rain sending the teams scuttling back to the pits towards the end of the day. Despite the weather, the names at the top of the testing timesheets are familiar, with the Kalexes crowding the top of the Moto2 timesheets, and the KTMs overrunning Moto3.
In Moto2, it was Scott Redding setting a positively scorching pace on his Marc VDS Racing Kalex, diving half a second under the Moto2 outright lap record set by Stefan Bradl during qualifying last year. Italtrans rider Claudio Corti set the 2nd fastest time, two tenths behind Redding, while Interwetten's Thomas Luthi took the 3rd spot and was fastest Suter rider, three tenths off the pace of Redding. The Kalexes of Takaaki Nakagami and Pol Espargaro followed, with Julian Simon the first FTR rider, eight tenths behind Redding, and Bradley Smith the quickest Tech 3 rider, a second off his compatriot Redding in 8th spot, after a day spent struggling with setup forcing the team to consider reverting to settings used back in November.
