It was almost a mock qualifying session to end the test, with many of the riders’ fastest laptimes set late on – but wind catching a few out, including Andrea Migno. But there was no big drama, and the stage is now set for the season opener.

Behind the incredibly tight top four, John McPhee took P5 as the veteran Scot once again showed good pace, with Albert Arenas and Raul Fernandez next up – and Arenas once again fastest KTM, with the same man on his tail. Dennis Foggia was eighth quickest, ahead of compatriot Celestino Vietti. Deniz Öncü once again completed the top ten and was the fastest rookie.
