Takaai Nakagami has topped the timesheets on day one of the final Moto2 and Moto3 pre-season test at Jerez, but the surprise performance of the day was British rookie Sam Lowes, who finished the day in third place. Lowes was only 0.341 behind the Honda Asia Kalex of the Japanese rider, with former 125GP champion Thomas Luthi splitting them on his...

Sam Lowes Rookie

 Think its a bit insulting to call Sam a Rookie.  After the year he had last year, what more does he have to do?

Exactly

 Buelligan. First time in this class against riders that have been there a while equates to being a rookie, just a bloody fast one. Good luck Sam.

Nice work by the class rookie Lowes

This is what class does. New bike, new class and straight to the pointy end. These Lowes boys are both very exciting prospects with huge potential futures ahead of them on the world stage.

 Sam is great. Let's not forget hes on a Speed-up bike. Wich only Ianone was ever really fast enough on to challenge the Kalex and Suter riders.

Sam and Alex

 Both class riders in their own right, A few years ago you would of had British based factory teams crying out for Lads like this,When you think about it, whatever has happened to different countries official importers running a team .even if it was in Moto 2 Marquez Repsol style, but of course Yamaha Kawasaki Suzuki etc may not be interested in fielding a Honda powered 600 eh  ,It should still be about the factories selling race spec machinery and making it viable and enterable for many not about multi million pound proffiteering for a circus dictatorship like Dorna,On top of that How many riders can earn a living in BSB now its all about a rider bringing cash to the party,it's a shame, Riders like Sam and Alex should be way further on now ,even though they are only 23/24 by the time they have any real experience in Motogp they will be 27/28 thats if they are lucky ,However it is what it is and short of a euromillions jackpot win i can do little more than Say good luck to them both ,they are marketable and talented

If I was in charge of BT

 I would be putting my hand in my pocket to get guys like this where they should be. If Telefonica Movistar can sponsor a factory effort why cant British Telecom back British talent. you know what to do BT, it would be a advertising dream for you and people imo, would flock to get your **** Turpin like service if you just backed British riders in Moto 3,2 and gp. a no fefing brainer.
