Valencia : 250cc - Final qualifying
Hiroshi Aoyama made yesterday's provisional pole position stick with an inspired showing in the second 250cc qualifying session.
The Japanese rider took his first top spot of the season as he aims for third place in the overall classification,
clocking a lap of 1'35.109.
Jorge Lorenzo will also be on the front row for his home race, hoping to take his maiden quarter litre championship tomorrow.
The only rider who stands in his way, Andrea Dovizioso, could only manage seventh on the grid.
Alex de Angelis and Roberto Locatelli complete the front row, ahead of Marco Simoncelli and Hector Barbera.
Dovizioso will have to work his way past all these talented riders if he is to take victory tomorrow and get his hands on this year's 250cc crown.
Shuhei Aoyama, David De Gea and Alex Debon completed the top ten.
