Danny Kent unfazed by Moto2 testing pace

Danny Kent says he’s not worried by a difficult start to the 2013 Moto2 pre-season after illness and bad weather hampered his bid to adapt to the Tech 3 Racing Mistral 610 machine. The first test of the year in Valencia last week was practically a write off with the former Red Bull KTM Moto3 rider laid low by a...

Im guessing the more well funded teams are using SS or old race engines, lets hope when Danny gets 2013 race engines he moves up the pack.

I don't expect the new engine to catapult him into the top six but if it can get him challenging for the minor points places would be good for his confidence, slogging around in 25th won't do his preparations for 2014 any good.

krabs. you can't put these shitty times down to illness

Depends on the illness and how it affects you, so you could if he's badly affected by it

Then there is the issue of how good is the bike -  again. His team mate is nowhere either. Kent has proven he's a talented rider with last year's results. In the wet test he was at the front, Rossi was nowhere near him. Obviously we don't know the full story there.

If the bike is good and he is fit, you'd expect to see him near the front straight off, depending on what the team's program for the test is. These guys are good and it doesn't take long to get used to a new bike - Marquez...

Actually agree with you about kent. He is class and if tech3 sort their bike out next year could be a big year for him. What I don't understand is why your opinions on riders have to be so polarised. You like smith or kent so you must hate cal or redding. Their all British talent doing well on the world stage why can't you be pleased about that?
