2013 Moto3 Valencia February Day 1 Test Times: Viñales Leads KTM Rout

Maverick Viñales topped the timesheets on the first day of testing for the Moto3 class at Valencia, leading a KTM charge which saw Austrian-powered bikes take eight of the top ten slots, with only Romano Fenati on the FTR Honda in 6th, and Efren Vazquez in 8th on the Suter-built Mahindra.

The first day of testing has already seen the title favorites put a gap between themselves and the chasing group. Viñales was fastest, with Luis Salom just fifteen hundredths behind him, and both men well under the Moto3 pole record for the Valencia circuit, which stands at 1:41.263. Alex Rins is the 3rd fastest man, the Spanish youngster just under six tenths behind his compatriots, and the last man within a second of Viñales. Malaysian rider Zulfahmi Khairuddin leads the chasing group, just over a second behind the JHK T-Shirt LaGlisse rider, and three tenths ahead of Aspar's Jonas Folger.

Viñales' teammate Ana Carrasco, the only female rider in the Grand Prix paddock this season, made a strong debut, finishing 12th ahead of a host of Moto3 regulars, and fastest rookie. Of the other rookies, the Italians were fastest, European Moto3 champion Matteo Ferrari ending in 16th, nearly two-and-a-half seconds behind Viñales, and three tenths quicker than Lorenzo Baldassarri, the quickest of the gaggle of Red Bull Rookies entering the class.

Testing continues tomorrow, before concluding on Thursday.
