Tetsuta Takes A Fine Fourth In Wet Mugello Practice

Young Japanese rider Tetsuta Nagashima made a big impact in today’s second free practice session held in tricky wet conditions at the Mugello circuit.

With his knowledge of the track coming from a three-day test earlier in the month where he enjoyed the help and experience of former 500cc HRC Honda rider Shinichi Itoh and with the weather leveling the field, the 21-year-old reveled in the damp/wet conditions to place himself fourth in that session.

On combined times from the dry morning session, Nagashima is in 28th position overall, but it shows what could be if the race and qualifying do become wet. Fastest on combined times is Esteve Rabat. Ahead of Tetsuta in the wet second session was Randy Krummenacher, Johann Zarco and Mika Kallio.

Tetsuta Nagashima, Teluru team JiR Webike’s rider

“Conditions were quite difficult this afternoon, but it was good to experience both half wet and wet conditions for me as it was my first time riding in the full wet condition with the TSR Moto2 machine. I have always liked the wet conditions since I started riding a pocket bike, and I'm happy to find out that I still like the wet conditions even with the bigger bike! I honestly really enjoyed it and it has given me a good confidence boost. We have no idea if tomorrow will be dry or wet, but I'll just try my best as always in any case.”
