Izan Guevara goes to rest as leader, without improvement among the fastest

Izan Guevara goes to rest as leader, without improvement among the fastest


Montmeló (Barcelona), June 3 (EFE).- The Spanish Izan Guevara (GasGas) has gone to rest after finishing the first day of free practice as leader of the Moto3 Grand Prix of Catalonia, in which none of the top four classified was able to improve his morning time.

The increase in temperature compared to the morning session only worsened the conditions of the asphalt, which was already a warning that lowering the records was going to cost much more than expected and that could be seen already at the first change, because all the pilots of the small category began lapping very far from the morning times, in some cases more than two seconds.

The first of the “representative” riders to lower his personal best, although in his case a crash in the morning had left him far behind in the time table, was the Turkish Deniz Öncü (KTM), who rose to seventh position , just ahead of the world leader, the Spanish Sergio García Dols (GasGas).

The Spanish Xavier Artigas (CFMoto) was another of the riders who “scratched” a few tenths off his best timer but it only earned him a place in twentieth place and he was followed with greater or lesser success by names such as the British John McPhee (Husqvarna ), also outside the direct classification, or the Japanese Tatsuki Suzuki (Honda) and Ryusei Yamanaka (KTM), in their case with a record that did allow them to be on the list of those chosen for the second direct classification.

Thus, Izan Guevara had to take his time of 1:48.675 for good, and in the afternoon session he was also the fastest, with 1:48.979, which will surely “spur” the young Majorcan on the second day of training in Catalonia, followed relatively closely by his compatriot Daniel Holgado (KTM), the Italian Dennis Foggia (Honda) and the also Spanish Jaume Masiá (KTM).

None of them could beat their morning record due to the weather conditions of the day, in which Suzuki and Yamanaka were the first in the table to lower their time ahead of the Italian Andrea Migno (Honda), who could not and finished the session seventh , ahead of the Japanese Kaito Toba, the Spanish Sergio García Dols, the Turkish Deniz Öncü (KTM) and the also Spanish Iván Ortolá (KTM), who finished the day in that order.

Carlos Tatay (CFMoto) achieved the twelfth fastest time, without improving his morning time, nor did David Muñoz (KTM), who finished behind him, and the Italian Riccardo Rossi (Honda), who was the last of the riders entitled to enter in the second direct classification.

With the obligation to go through the first classification, on a provisional basis, are David Salvador (Husqvarna), the British John McPhee (Honda), the Italian Stefano Nepa (KTM), Adrián Fernández (KTM), Xavier Artigas (CFMoto), Ana Carrasco (KTM), the Brazilian Diogo Moreira (KTM) and Marcos Uriarte (Honda), substitute for the injured Italian rider Alberto Surra.
