Jerez : 125cc – Day One
Mattia Pasini took charge at Jerez to take provisional pole for Sunday's 125cc race, with a time of 1'47''371 putting him ahead of morning pacesetter Gabor Talmacsi in the opening qualifying session.
The Italian was less than two tenths ahead
of his Hungarian rival, with the duo the only riders to go round in under 1'48.
Tomoyoshi Koyama and Lukas Pesek rounded off the provisional front row, with the latter suffering a spectacular crash late on in the session in which his bike highsided, colliding with Sergio Gadea as it came to a stop. The session also saw incidents involving Stefano Bianco and Randy Krummenacher, with a number of riders also experiencing lowside tumbles at the Spanish track.
Simone Corsi, World Championship leader Héctor Faubel, Raffaele de Rosa, Michael Ranseder, Alexis Masbou and Andrea Iannone completed the top ten in the lower cylinder category.
