Canet and Masia lead opening day charges at Portimao Test

Ahead of the opening round of the 2023 campaign in Portimao next week, the Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes are at the Algarve International Circuit for three days of testing. After Day 1’s runs, Aron Canet (Pons Wegow Los40) set the quickest time on Friday, with the Spaniard’s 1:42.681 seeing him soar to the top of the timesheets in chilly conditions. There were also strong starts to the campaign by Sam Lowes (ELF Marc VDS Racing Team) and Bo Bendsneyeder (Pertamina Mandalika SAG Team), who round out the top five times of Day 1 in the intermediate class. In Moto3™, Jaume Masia’s return to Leopard Racing has gotten off to an excellent start, as he claimed top spot on Friday with a 1:48.416. A huge step on the final day of testing launches Quartararo and Yamaha back into the title frame.
