Moto2 Qualifying

The 2010 Moto2 World Champion Toni Elías will start the final intermediate category race of the season at Valencia from pole position – his third of the year – courtesy of a best lap of 1:36.141.

The Gresini Racing Moto2 rider finished the session fractionally over a tenth of a second ahead of German rider Stefan Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer Racing), who had been strong in the practice runs and won last time out in Portugal.

Joining the duo on the front row will be Andrea Iannone (Fimmco Speed Up) and Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing Team) as they both got within 0.202 of a second of pole. Alex de Angelis (JiR Moto2), Kenan Sofuoglu (Technomag-CIP), Julián Simón (Mapfre Aspar) and Carmelo Morales (Racing Team Germany) will all start from the second row, meaning Iannone and Simón will play out their Moto2 battle for the runner-up spot in the Championship with the Spaniard lining up directly behind his Italian rival on the grid.

Row three of Moto2 will comprise Karel Abraham (Cardion ab Motoracing), Thomas Lüthi (Interwetten Moriwaki Racing), Jules Cluzel (Forward Racing) and Gabor Talmacsi (Fimmco Speed Up).
