Fermin Aldeguer was fastest during Moto2 World Championship Practice Two (P2) Saturday morning at Circuit of The Americas (COTA), in Austin, Texas.

Riding his Beta Tools SpeedUp Boscoscuro racebike, the young Spaniard turned a lap time of 2:07.543 around the 3.4-mile (5.5 km) circuit. Not only did that time top the field of 29 riders, it smashed the new All-Time Lap Record of 2:08.359 Aldeguer set Friday afternoon.

Japan’s Ai Ogura was the best of the rest and right behind Aldeguer with a 2:07.569 on his MT Helmets – MSI Boscoscuro, and Brit Jake Dixon was third-quickest with a 2:07.751 on his CFMOTO Asterius Aspar Team Kalex.

American Joe Roberts was fifth-fastest in the session with a 2:07.889 — just 0.346 second slower than Aldeguer — on his OnlyFans American Racing Team Kalex.

Roberts’ teammate Marcos Ramirez (2:07.766) finished the session just ahead of him in fourth.
