Bradley Smith remains top Brit in Estoril test

1 of 1

Bradley Smith has remained top British rider after the second day of testing at the Estoril circuit in Portugal.

The Aspar Aprilia rider clocked a best time of 1.46.328 to lap 0.3s faster than he managed on the opening day.

But that time saw him slip down to fourth on the timesheets as Spanish team-mate Julian Simon once again dominated.

He set a best time of 1.45.046, which nobody could get within a second of as Pol Espargaro got closest with a best lap of 1.46.218.

British GP winner and 2008 rookie sensation Scott Redding knocked a massive 1.6s off his best time from the opening day with a fastest lap of 1.47.272.

That moved him up the rankings into ninth place and two places ahead of fellow Brit Danny Webb, who ended 11th after a crash at the fourth corner which he escaped injury in.
