West fastest in Valencia Moto2 test

Aussie ace pilots MZ racer to top slot in testing

FORMER MOTOGP man Anthony West posted the fastest on the first day of testing for the new Moto2 class at Valencia.

The Australian, riding an MZ, notched up a best time of 1:37.4 on the 4.005km Valencia track.

The teams are using the test to get to grips with the new machines; test times shouldn't be taken too seriously as the Moto2 squads are still waiting for the official hand-built Honda full-power engines. Instead, teams will run tuned CBR600 motors, while the top-spec engines wait to be delivered.

1. Anthony West (AUS), MZ 1:37,4
2. Julian Simon (E), BQR 1:37,9
3. Roberto Rolfo (I), Suter-MMX 1:38,4
4. Raffaele De Rosa (I), Tech 3 1:39,2 
5. Mike di Meglio (FRA), BQR 1:39,3
6. Axel Pons (e), Kalex 1:40,4
7. Sergio Gadea (e), Kalex 1:40,4
8. Alessandro Brannetti (I), CRP 1:40,5
