Moto3 Argentina: Kent tops times on opening day

With track conditions constantly improving the last man to set a fast time was always going to be at an advantage but having set a stellar pace throughout the day Danny Kent topped the times once again. Kent continued his impressive start to the 2015 season by asserting his dominance at the end of the opening day's Moto3 practice sessions. The Englishman, who's confidence is sky high after dominating in Texas, showed the hallmarks of a potential champion by setting his times on his own and setting a series of quick times.

Livio Loi, Karel Hankia and Enea Bastianini were all impressively in the top four but with Kent holding a four tenths of a second advantage it's clear that he is once again holding a strong hand this weekend. Loi's performance was another reminder of how talented the Belgian is and having been a frontrunner here 12 months ago he could be dark horse this weekend.

Learning another new track made for a somewhat more difficult day than Fabio Quartararo has been used to but a series of late lap times saw the Frenchman claw his way into the top ten and finished sixth fastest. Alexis Masbou, winner of the opening race of the season, was 19th fastest and over 1.5s off the pace.
