Clear skies welcomed the #motogp World Championship to the #termasderiohondo circuit for round two of the 2019 championship. With the circuit in a good and clean condition, riders were able to get straight to work preparing for the #argentina GP.
Marc Marquez was immediately fast, jumping to the top of the Free Practice 1 timesheets and remaining there until the end of the session with a lap of 1’39.827. Free Practice 2 saw the ground temperature remain at 32°C as clouds gathered but culminated in an explosive time-attack shootout in the last ten minutes. The reigning champion cut his time down to a 1’39.497 and concluded the day eighth fastest.
On the other side of the Repsol Honda Team garage, #jorgelorenzo began the process of adapting his Honda #rc213v to the Argentinian circuit. A 1’41.340 saw the five-time champion conclude the opening session in 14th. Finding over a second during Free Practice 2, Lorenzo set a respectable 1’40.159 to finish a Friday which saw 21 riders within a second of the fastest rider.
Both riders and their crews have already begun preparations for tomorrow’s Free Practice 3 session at 10:50 local time with qualifying kicking off at 15:05 local time later in the day.
