Redding stays top of Moto2 times

Kalex rider keeps Spanish duo at bay to seize top spot
Scott Redding continued to set the pace on the second day of testing in the Moto2 class on his MarcVDS Kalex machine at Jerez.

Redding seized the top spot from Spain's Pol Espargaro and Esteve Rabat, with his fastest lap just two-tenths-of-a-second adrift of the pole position time for the circuit this year.

Espargaro was a tenth of a second in arrears with Rabat a further three tenths off the pace set by the Gloucestershire prospect.

A battered and bruised Bradley Smith, still suffering the effects from his crash at Sepang, was in sixth position for Tech 3 behind Mika Kallio on the second Marc VDS Kalex machine.

Gino Rea on the Gresini Moriwaki was marginally slower than Smith and ahead of Alex De Angelis, with the 2011 125cc world champion, Nico Terol, finishing outside the top 10 in 11th place on the Aspar Suter, followed by team-mate Toni Elias.

Lot of talk about Redding because people really think he is one of the standout talents. Yes it is bike development, but his is the newest, so may go the furthest, and he is on front already, but as you say, it is just testing. If you are seriously trying to make a point about British people being Nationalistic you are so very wrong. We support many riders from different countries, try listening to the Spanish media if you want to hear Nationalists.
