1 of 1

British 15-year-old Bradley Smith looked to be learning fast after the second and final day of his first ever 125cc MotoGP official test.

2005 125cc MotoGP runner-up Mika Kallio was fastest at the official 125 test at Catalunya on March 1. And Tuesday’s fastest rider - Sergio Gadea - equalled his 1´51.365 lap, but saw it beat by Kallio, Pesek and Bautista.
