2013 Moto3 Valencia February Test Day 2 Times: Viñales Heads Up Spanish Trio On Day 2

Maverick Viñales remains the man to beat in the Moto3 class, the JHK T-Shirt LaGlisse rider topping the timesheets on the second day, just as he had done on  the first. The Spaniard was fast, beating the Moto3 race lap record by over a second on Wednesday, helped in no small part by the wind having dropped off since yesterday.

Alex Rins leads the chase for Viñales, the Spaniard just under a quarter of a second off the pace of his compatriot, while yesterday's 2nd fastest man Luis Salom has dropped to 3rd, though only a couple of hundredths slower than Rins. Romano Fenati managed to disrupt the KTM party, the Italian finding one and a half seconds from his FTR Honda, to leap up to 4th place, three quarters of a second behind Viñales, and just ahead of Malaysian rider Zulfahmi Khairuddin on the AirAsia KTM. Khairuddin was the last rider to get within a second of fastest man Viñales, the rest still some way off the pace.

Fenati was not the only rider to make big steps forward. Alex Marquez took nearly 1.7 seconds off his best time from Tuesday to nab 6th spot, Brad Binder improved by over 1.3 seconds, and Miguel Oliveira made a huge step forward of nearly 2.5 seconds to get into the top 10. Jasper Iwema and John McPhee also made excellent progress, as did the raft of rookies entering the class, with Livio Loi, Philipp Oettl, and Francesco Bagnaia all taking upwards of 1.5 seconds off their best times from Tuesday.

Testing concludes on Thursday, and with the wind expected to disappear altogether, the chances of getting into the 1'39s and heading towards the records held by the 125cc two strokes the Moto3 class replaced are good.
