KTM top 250cc test courtesy of Kallio
Smith picks up the pace in 125cc Jerez visit
After two days of Aprilia dominance, Red Bull KTM returned to the forefront in Jerez at the final session of 250cc action today ( Saturday).

Pleasant temperatures and less wind than earlier in the week allowed many riders
to improve their times, but the two who really made it count were Mika Kallio and Hiroshi Aoyama.

Kallio's time of 1'43.303 put him at the head of a list of eight riders within the same second of Alvaro Bautista's time from yesterday, although Bautista himself finished the test behind countrymen Hector Barbera and Alex Debon.

Having given those at the track a scare yesterday with a crash, Roberto Locatelli once again took a tumble at Jerez. The Italian escaped unhurt, as did Metis Gilera team/mate Marco Simoncelli, Julian Simon, Lukas Pesek, Faubel and Barbera.

Heading the 125cc testing timesheets for the second time in as many days, Bradley Smith put in what is unofficially the fastest ever lap for a bike of its kind at Jerez.

The Oxfordshire rider's time of 1'46.869 was quicker than current circuit record holder Mattia Pasini's marker, and also made him the only participant at the test to go round in under 1'47.

Whilst results from this week can be rationalised as ‘merely testing', for Smith this represents an important progression and a statement of intent to Gabor Talmacsi, the 2007 World Champion who was second fastest today. Simone Corsi, Mike di Meglio, Sergio Gadea and Sandro Cortese completed the top six, with the latter three all riding improved machines to those with which they began the 2007 season.


It wasn't all good news for the Briton, however, as he suffered a light crash at the Spanish circuit although escaped unharmed. Not so fortunate was former team-mate Esteve Rabat, who fractured his left collarbone in an unrelated incident.

Teams from both 250cc and 125cc will be back on track next week in Valencia for further testing.
