Moto2: Sam Lowes Breaks Lap Record Again to Take Second Successive Pole Position
Sam Lowes is on top form, re-breaking the lap record that he broke this morning to set a 1:51.296. Sam’s pace looks very strong and could produce a dominant race tomorrow
Despite a crash at turn seven, Lightech Speed Up’s Jorge Navarro will start from second place on the grid and will be looking to try and get the holeshot into turn one and prevent Sam Lowes from streaking away at the start of the race. Jorge was unsure of why he crashed and will need to make sure that he doesn’t have his seventh none finish of the season.
Rounding out the front row is Onexox TKKR SAG’s Remy Gardner. The Australian managed to win a battle with Marcos Ramirez and Hector Garzo for fifth position last weekend from tenth on the grid. With starting on the front row, can the Australian take his third podium finish of the season?
Enea Bastianini has managed to clinch a second row position on the grid with sixth place. It will be vital for Enea to get a good start and try to get ahead of Sam if he is to have any chance of halting the Brit’s charge to the championship lead. Enea is only two points ahead of Sam, what will the gap be tomorrow?
Luca Marini was able to make it into Q2, finishing Q1 in third place. Marini was then able to finish in the middle of the fourth row in eleventh. Luca has always had good launches off the line this year and that’s exactly what he needs to do tomorrow to limit the damage that Sam Lowes looks to implement.
Despite being the strongest of the two SKY VR46 bikes over the past two weekends in Aragon. Marco Bezzecchi will start in a dismal 14th position. Marco struggled to put in a lap time good enough for the front two rows and will have a lot of work to do keep his championship hopes alive.
Marco also had a tussle with Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Jorge Martin at the end of the session, with the Spaniard frustrated at the Italian for holding him up on Jorge’s final qualifying lap. Jorge will start alongside Marini in 12th place and will be looking to try and work his way back up into the top five positions.
