2014 Assen Moto2 FP3: Rookies Rule & Rain Returns

Sam Lowes has continued his strong form and topped the third Moto2 free practice session for the Dutch TT at Assen. The rain that occurred in the MotoGP session previous and remaining thick cloud cover left the track cold and meant that Lowes' time of 1:38.897 was a full second slower than Rabat's benchmark lap from yesterday. Fellow Moto2 rookie Maverick Vinales ended up with the second fastest time after exchanging top spot with Lowes regularly.

Dominique Aegerter, Tito Rabat and Tom Luthi completed the top five while Simone Corsi took his Kalex machine to sixth position ahead of Johann Zarco and Mika Kallio. Jordi Torres and Belgian rider Xavier Simeon rounded out the top ten. In the final minutes of the session rain flags were shown as additional light showers fell, it promises to be a highly unpredictable and equally entertaining weekend ahead.

Haha

When I read the title, I thought the Ben Spies rule was back in effect before I realized what it meant.
