Takaaki Nakagami dominates Moto2 preseason in Qatar

The Moto2 preseason races have been coming along great but the weather in Qatar was definitely a huge obstacle for the riders with heavy pouring on Day 1, a good running on Day 2 and a sandstorm in Day 3, thus having the final run of the Moto2 preseason cancelled.

Takaaki Nakagami of Idemitsu Honda Team Asia was thetop overall with a record of 2:00.187 on Day 2, with EG0,0 Marc VDS rider Franco Morbidelli only 0.053 back. 2014 Moto3™ World Champion Alex Marquez of Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS ended his preseason in P3 after topping Jerez, 0.240 off P1.

Malaysia’s Hafizh Syahrin of Petronas Raceline Malaysia clocked half a second back in P4 followed by Miguel Oliveira of Red Bull KTM Ajo ending it at 2:00:861 whereas teammate Brad Binder was 1.6 seconds off.

Tom Luthi of CarXpert Interwetten came in sixth, ahead of Xavi Vierge of Tech 3 Racing. Danny Kent of Kiefer Racing came in at 2:01.236 while Axel Pons was at P10, just 0.016s off.

Moto2 will officially commence next week at Losail next Thursday.
