Granado sets the pace in Jerez FP2

One Energy Racing’s Eric Granado topped the order again in the second free practice session in Jerez.

Granado, who took pole and a race win during MotoE’s last visit to the Spanish circuit, managed a 1m48.234s lap. The time was just under two tenths slower than the lap he managed during FP1.

Second practice was stopped early on after a crash for Corentin Perolari brought out the red flags. Only a handful of riders had set lap times when the session was paused, and all would find improvements once green flags were waved with a little over 20 minutes on the clock.

Miquel Pons was top of the times early on, but was soon displaced by Andrea Mantovani.

Lap times rapidly improved through the second half of the session, with Yonny Hernandez, Dominique Aegerter, and Mattia Casadei all taking turns at the top of the order.

In the closing stages of the session, a number of drivers managed sub-1m49s laps, with Granado going top late on with a lap just 0.223s quicker than Pons.

Xavi Cardelus took third, ahead of Alessandro Zaccone and Aegerter.

A number of riders again had lap times deleted for exceeding track limits. Fermin Alderguer fell foul of the track limits twice in quick succession, but managed a legal lap that put him sixth overall.

Casadei ended the session P7, ahead of Ferrari, Hernandez and Jordi Torres.
