Dixon set the pace in the third free practice of the British GP

Date:

The British Jake Dixon (Kalex) “sentenced” the Moto2 free practice sessions and knocked Augusto Fernández out of the lead (Kalex) in the third and final session of the British Grand Prix in the category, held this morning at the Silverstone circuit.

The start of the Moto2 riders on the track was brilliant, with many of them quickly lowering their records from the first day, although others made mistakes just as quickly, as happened in Jorge Navarro (Kalex), who went down in the first moments of the session and he couldn’t even set the correct time, something that happened the other day to his own colleague, Arón Canet.

Navarro had to watch a good part of the session from his workshop as the mechanics tried to fix the bike and on the track, although Augusto Fernández (Kalex) remained the leader of the session without lowering his record from the first day, behind him the British Jake Dixon (Kalex), the Japanese Ai Ogura (Kalex ), who crashed at turn fifteen a little over twenty minutes from the end of the session, the American Cameron Beaubier (Kalex) or the Spaniards Albert Arena (Kalex) and Alonso López (Boscoscuro).

It took a long time for Ogura’s motorcycle to reach his workshopwho conditioned in the latter part of his training session, although he managed to “sign” the fourth fastest time in the category.

In the last third of the Moto2 session, two aspects stand out and both concern the leaders of the category, Augusto Fernández, who although the leader did not improve his personal record, but neither did the Italian Celestino Vietti (Kalex ), in his worst class case, thirteenth, which could ultimately dislodge him from the second direct classification if his rivals improve significantly.

Fermín Aldeguer (Boscoscuro), twelfth ahead of Vietti, crashed at twelve it seemed like just over five minutes were left, although it was even worse for Arón Canet (Kalex), fifteenth, who struggled to find a good rhythm that would allow him to finish in second place.

And the surprise came in the last minutes at the hands of Jake Dixon (Kalex), who managed to take the lead with two tenths and a half seconds ahead of Fernández, who still did not improve, which Vietti did to climb to seventh place.

Fernández attempted one last fast lap after “clearing” some rivals off the track and although he achieved the goal of bettering his personal time, he couldn’t dislodge Jake Dixón from first place.

Behind them, an ever-rising Arón Canet first moved into seventh position and from there became third in two consecutive laps, beating Ogura, Dutchman Bo Bendsneyder (Kalex), Alonso López, Albert Arenas, Cameron Beaubier, Joe Roberts, Celestino Vietti, the Czech Filip Salac (Kalex), the Italian Tony Arbolino, the Spanish Jeremy Alcoba and the German Marcel Schrotter, who entered the second classification

Out of it and trying to contest the first, the Spaniard finished Manuel González (Kalex), Fermín Aldeguer, Jorge Navarro and Marcos Ramírez (MV Agusta).
