Three days of testing in Jerez in fabulous sunshine have prepared the 24 teenagers for the ninth season of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. For many of the fifteen newcomers it was the first chance to ride the Moto3 specification KTM RC 250 R 4-stroke.
One of the first year Rookies is 14-year-old Ayumu Sasaki who sensationally headed the timing sheets. Chasing him hard was fellow countryman Kaito Toba, winner of last year's Asia Talent Cup. At the other end of Rookies Cup experience is 17-year-old Australian Olly Simpson who can't wait to get started on his third season after ending the test third quickest.
