MOTOGP >>> nEWs KTM looks like the bike to beat in Moto3 in 2014, after Jack Miller topped the final pre-season testing at Jerez. The Australian was in prime form in Spain, lapping the circuit in 1:46.326. He was 0.033s clear of the Honda of Alex Marquez and Miller’s Red Bull KTM Ajo teammate Karel Hanika. " It really has been a very good preseason,” M iller said. “I have learned a great deal and the whole team has helped me in the process of adaptation. Workouts have been really productive, so I think we are in the good way to start the season in Qatar.” PEUgEOT HEADINg TO MOTO3? Takaaki Nakagami ended pre-season testing as favourite for the vacant Moto2 crown after testing in spain last week. The Japanese rider set fastest time of the three-day test, lapping the Jerez track in 1:42.206s on his Idemitsu Honda Team Asia Kalex. The similar Dynavolt Intact GP bike of sandro Cortese was second fastest ahead of two suter riders, Tom Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) and Xavier simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2). Injuries hampered a number of riders, including sam Lowes (swollen ankle) and Gino Rea (broken ankle). The latter (above) was down in an unrepresentative 22nd position on his AGT-Rea Racing suter after losing what he estimated at a second’s pace with the injury. The Brit will be looking for a better result in the opening races of the season with the Austin, Texas-based team with the interesting, green sponsor. Moto2: ATTAAK! There could soon be another manufacturer in the fast-growing Moto3 championship – Peugeot. Video images of what appears to be Peugeot Scooters-backed Moto3 racer appeared on the internet site infomotogp. com last weekend, and it looks like the French giant is planning an assault on the world championship. According to the report, the bike will race in the opening round of the CIV (Campionato Italiano Velocita) at Mugello on April 4, in the hands of former Italian champion Lorenzo Dalla Porta. The bike is reported to use an English FTR frame, similar to that used by Romano Fenati last year. Its single-cylinder engine has been developed by Oral Engineering, the Modena -based company founded by former Ferrari and Lamborghini engine designer Mauro Forghieri. The project is said to have the strong support of Enrico Pellegrino, Managing Director of Peugeot Scooter Italy. While Peugeot is better known as a car company, it made its first motorcycle in 1898 and sells more than 100,000 bikes and scooters annually, in 50 countries. Having already triumphed at Le Mans, the World Rally Championship, Dakar and Pikes Peak, can it be long before the lion stands up on t wo wheels?
