 In Moto2, News


World Championship leader Tito Rabat made a positive start to Moto2 practice at the state-of-the-art Circuit of the Americas on Friday.

Spaniard Rabat was third quickest in both 45-minute practice sessions, the opening round winner in Qatar finishing just over 0.3s off Johann Zarco’s best pace.

Tito focussed on refining the race set-up of his Kalex machine and his best pace of 2.11.147 was almost 0.6s under Nico Terol’s 2013 lap record.

“I am very happy with today because I was inside the top three in both sessions. We made a very good job with the team and we tried many different settings on the bike and already I am optimistic we have found a good base for the race. We still need to work in some areas, particularly the slower sections, to improve tomorrow. But I really like this track and I am sure if we can continue the good work of today we can battling for the victory again like in Qatar.”
