Aron Canet made his mark on the Moto2 field during testing at Jerez, easily outpacing the rest of the class rookies and finishing fifth fastest overall.

Canet, who moved from Moto3 into the Aspar Moto2 team for this season, finished only four-tenths off veteran Tom Luthi with a 1’40.326 which was just outside Lorenzo Baldassarri’s lap record set last year.

“I am happy, the marks of these three days are very good. We have a good race pace. We have set very fast times and in the last session we have made a race simulation,” said Canet.

“It was perhaps the time of the week when I could be more tired, but still we have set times that we did not expect. We are ready for Qatar.”
