French Moto2 Practice 3 Results | Lowes leads into Le Mans qualifying


Sam Lowes heads into qualifying for the French Moto2 as the cautious rider to beat as he held onto his spot at the top of the timesheets at a damp Le Mans.

With a cool, misty start to the day ensuring a damp start to proceedings for Saturday morning's P3 session, the sketchy conditions ruled out any chance for riders to get close to Friday's benchmarks.

As such, there was no change at the top with Lowes - winner last time out from pole position at Jerez - holding firm ahead of KTM Ajo's Pedro Acosta and SpeedUp's Alonso Lopez. Filip Salac (QJmoto Gresini) and Celestino Vietti (Fantic Racing) complete the top five.


Despite the conditions, the session itself unfolded without major drama with only two fallers, Vietti and Fantic team-mate Borja Gomez the culprits.

With conditions improving enough for some to venture out on slick tyres in the closing stages, Honda Team Asia's Somkiat Chantra led the way on the P3 timesheets, ahead of Marc VDS' Tony Arbolino and American Racing's Sean Dylan Kelly, the US rider showing strongly.

Of the Brits, Lowes kept his running to a minimum en route to ninth, Jake Dixon chose against venturing out and Rory Skinner was an encouraging 15th best on the second of the American Racing machines.
