EDIT 2: Climber hooked me up with an awesome table generator he created. Link to the table generator.

Day two of the Jerez Moto2 and Moto3 test was Wednesday. I think today is supposed to be wet so no expectation of faster times.

Joe Roberts has spent much of the off-season tests improving the new NTS chassis. He had a new frame for this test that improved the feel quite bit. His Moto2 World Championship dry times last season usually placed him 30th or so as the AGR team really struggled to put a decent set up together. Roberts was obviously better than the bike. In testing with NTS he has been placing in the mid-teens to 20th. More importantly, he's getting significantly closer to the leaders' times. Wednesday saw him less than a second back of the fastest time set by Sam Lowes. Thats way better than could be expected for a new rider, team and chassis in a class as competitive as Moto2. And looking at the surrounding names on the list, Roberts is in some pretty fast company.

Here's hoping Joe Roberts and the NTS team keep progressing at this rate through the season.

Moto2 times from Wednesday and Jerez:

David Emmett posted the same article on MotoMatters. Very good article and worth the read. I love that Tech3 is picking up the KTM and it will be very cool if the extra data can help develop the bike into a serious contender!

First Moto3 practice session starts in a few minutes. I'm closing this thread. All discussion moves to the race event threads.

Great off-season discussion everyone.
