Terol Untouchable Again In Second Practice

1 Mins read

Nico Terol produced yet another peerless display as he left the 125cc field trailing in second practice in Portugal.

Two wins out of two have already put him in a dominant position in the World Championship standings, and the Spaniard was untouchable on Friday at Estoril.

Terol led the field by over a second in this morning's first session and held a similar advantage for most of the second session, eventually finishing with a best time of 1:46.500.

Sandro Cortese was the only man remotely capable of keeping up with Terol, and the German brought the gap down to 0.708s with the last lap of the session.

After finishing second this morning, Johann Zarco was demoted to third in the afternoon with the Frenchman edging out Hector Faubel after the Bankia Aspar rider had momentarily got ahead him.

Andalucía Banca Civica had another encouraging outing as their riders claimed fifth and sixth places. Miguel Oliveira had the edge on Alberto Moncayo this time as the 16 year old continues to impress in his debut season.

The two Red Bull Ajo MotorSport entries were next up, with Jonas Folger 1.884s off the pace in seventh with Britain's Danny Kent making good progress from the morning session to take eighth, just 0.072 behind his teammate.

Mahindra's Danny Webb had been the fastest of the British quartet in FP1 and the Kent rider had another promising session, ending it in 16th. After agonizingly missing out on points in the wet at Jerez, Webb will fancy his chances of achieving that here, wet or dry.

Harry Stafford impressed for OngettaCentro Seta on his way to 23rd, getting over a second closer to the pace than he had been in FP1. His time of 1:50.603 put him one place ahead of Taylor Mackenzie.

The only wildcard entrant in the 125cc class, Kevin Hanus ended his session early after a crash coming into the hairpin at turn nine.
